    I wish they had tested the K&N filters and cold air systems. However, it has been my experience on motorcycles that the K&N adds nothing in regards to power or increased MPG but it is worth the investment if you do a LOT of driving and/or intend to keep the vehicle for a long time. It took about 3-1/2 years for the K&N on my latest bike to pay for itself ($70). The OEM filter on my Honda Valkyrie is about $20 a pop

    Wonder why they didn't mention headers?

    Apparentley Downey off road has a set for the 4 banger that is suppose to be a simple bolt on installation. Minor mpg improvements and increase in horsepower.

    May eventually go that route for the sound if nothing else.:D
