against what everyone said, i installed K&N CAI

even though everyone but one person told me to not install this CAI, i must say i am extremely pleased with it, i 100% can feel more power, its just not the sound that makes me think theres more power either. with my A6, going 15mph ish, i can spin the tires which i def couldnt before.

got 1200 miles on her ever so close to 1500 thinking i might get a tune after 1500 miles.... still completely indifferent about headers and or exhaust

I have the K&N CAI, and I'm happy with it as well. It may not be entirely as nice as some of the other models, but it was like half the price, and still does the job. Don't feel bad about your decision!

The K&N filter is not quality. Look at it closely up to any light source. See all those specs of light coming through it? Those are called holes. How much filtering does a hole do for you? It acts like a venturi and actually draws the dirt into your motor. How much dirt is good dirt? Really think about it.

I am good with your Amsoil pitch but not so with the K&N. I have owned many different K&N filters over the years and never had I owned one with holes in it. I also never had an engine fail due to one.:(

It makes me laugh everytime I see that huge bubble for the MAF. Has anyone figured out why they did that?

I went with the black tube on mine as well and am very satisfied as you and others have said with the final product. I've ran K&N's on my last 4 vehicles and haven't had one complaint on any of the kits. I posted up a thread somewhere as well before and after I got it with my little "review" of what my thoughts were on the kit. Curious to see what kind of help we actually get to the rear wheels with the kit, anyone dyno with this kit on and maybe just an exhaust but no tune?
