You might get a slight increase in power or mileage (not both), but it's probably not noticeable. However, you won't be wasting money and landfill space, because the filters are washable.crash said:Hi all,
Does anyone have a K&N filter on their MO? If so, did it make any difference....meaning more power, better fuel, different sounds....I guess the question is, should I get one, and if I do, what should I expect?
I agree with Tyler, you will also save money in the long run by re-using and cleaning the same air filter also you will not have to worry about looking for the filter if it is not in stock.Tyler_Canada said:

You are probably correct about the lack of warranty protection, however if you follow the directions there will be no problem. I have been using K&N and Amsoil filters for over twenty years with no problems.hasaanbhutta said:ok guys, i was interested in that too, but what about warranty ?
i heard , while cleaning if (by accident) you put more oil and it goes into the air-intake of MO, it can cause some damage (not covered by warranty) to the car as well.
thats the only fact holding me back from getting that one.
Amsoil filters have disappeared from the local scene about ten years ago and I have not been able to find a distrubter since then. You are probaly aware that Canadian tire stocks the K&N filter and the cleaning kits but nothing from Amsoil.hasaanbhutta said:thanks Stoker,
can you please tell me where do u buy the Amsoil filters ?
i cant find it here in Saskatoon (not a big surprise for me though) but a friend of mine is driving next week to calgary so i can ask him to get me one.
i can get the k&n oil filter here but interested in the Amsoil one since i use that oil too.
PS> and also approx. how much $$
nice,crash said:hasaanbhutta, my buddy just bought a K&N from Canadian Tire for $69.99 (on sale this week). This is where the whole thought train for me started....His was for his Grand Am; so I wanted opinions for Mo's.
I loosened the hose clamp at the duct going into the intake. Then pulled the rubber duct off the air cleaner housing. This gave enough movement to get the lid off and set it aside.mgthe3 said:can somebody answer my question about changing the filter....
