Default K&N air intake ???s

i think this thread can go here, wasnt sure. ive searched each section on this site and no luck with air intake questions. ive been looking into the K&N and also the AIRAID system. whats your thoughts on both of them? (airaid might be just canadian not sure) anyone hae it installed in there rangers and notice any extra HP and fuel milage they claim?

also read that aftermarket air intakes can be bad because they dont filter as good and just let as much air in as possible without filtering out junk. you think thats true?

thanks for the help

Be prepared for some Cold air intake bashes. some people on here have them, others will say they are pointless.

There are plenty of threads on this topic. Search harder. If your engine is stock you are seriously wasting your time. The economy could still use some stimulation though.

since you have a 4.0 V6 i moved the thread to the 4.0 tech section. if you search that section you will find this topic discussed a few times.

I have the K&N intake on my truck

Before I got my tuner there was not much of a gain. Combine it with a tuner and you get your monies worth.
