    if you really want to go that route just make sure when you oil the filter do it properly(read the directions) dont soak the bastard:D. but seriously the deckplate mod is way cheaper and gives better results.

    Nothing will really increase hp except for a super charger and nothings gonna improve mpg enough to be noticeable, personally I wouldnt pay for the k&n unless i got it for cheap which i did but it does sound good when i punch it ;)
