Question K&N intake - Part # 57-2576

Are these good intakes - or should I stay away?

The issue is I am selling parts from my previous car, and one of the buyers works at a NAPA auto parts store. He wanted to set up some type of trade for maintenance items (Im assuming he gets a nice discount) plus some cash for one of my S2000 parts.

I do plan on doing some emissions deletes and going with something like a Spartan tuner over the next few months.

Turbos and K&N= NO NO


they DO NOT mix...

K&N filters let too much dust through them which in return will dust your turbo!

There are other brands that are better.
I think one of them is AFE...



Good luck!

What are the differences in the S&B or AFE intakes mentioned above compared to the K&N?

Do they run a paper filter opposed to the K&N style?

I would never run a K&N in a diesel. I have S&B and love it. Very good price, easy to install, and adds to the air flow significantly.

According to the description and photos, the S&B vs K&N is basically the same exact thing.

S&B offers a dry disposable filter or oiled filter, just like the K&N.

It kinda looks like there is a white paper filter that goes around the air box of the S&B, and they have a clear plexi window on top or what is essentially the K&N intake...?

I would also stick with S&B or AFE.

A lot of the rumors about K&N filters arent true, they make a decent setup, but the others mentioned are better intakes at a better price. K&N is also in the middle of redesigning their diesel kits, I am curious to see what they come up with.
