K&N works just fine.
No appreciable gain in power but reusable and cheaper than Mines by a mile.

I tested my car on the dyno w/ the OEM filter and then w/ no filter. No change in peak power. So the gains from any filter are going to be zero at best. The advantage is have a serviceable filter that can be reused rather then spending money to replace the OEM.

We have one set of Mine's VX air filters left in stock if you are interested. But, as he said they don't do much on a stock set up. However, on cars running higher than stock boost and/or ECU tuning, I would suspect a slight high RPM horsepower gain and/or throttle response improvement.

Thanks Jeremy . But Unless they give me some Hp on a stock setup I wouldn't go for them now. I'm very far away from any ECU Tuning at the moment.
