Opinions on K&N Air Filters

I'm looking into getting a K&N Air Filter for my 2005 Tacoma. Was thinking about the one below. Any opinions?

waste of money. I bought one and it ended up costing me gas milege! I stomped the gas all the time so I could hear it! haha

but for real though, the only gain you will get is sound. If you want performance I say save up and get headers and or a URD MAF CAL.

if you search around the site you will find dozens of threads talking about this

Absolute junk. You turn your stock cold air intake into a hot air intake. If you still want aftermarket go for AFE Stage 2 SI or an old style TRD but don't expect much more than a lot of noise.

More dirt will pass through it than the stock which will equate to shorter engine life. I also think the filter oil contributes to fouling MAF sensors faster.
