Has anyone purchased the K & N drop in aur filter for their 2000 accent. I want to get it, but, don't know if they make it ( I am sure they do)

If anyone has gotten it can you let me know the part number and the price that you paid for it.

Thanx

just a drop in filter (even K&N) will not add any hp.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

The filter is not what restricts air flow in the stock intake. The tiny opening in the front is what does that.

Go for a CAI if you are looking for gains.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

the filter causes the most resistance in the air intake. But since it is necessary to have one ( for obvious reasons) I want to get one that will allow more clean air to pass through.

I don't want to go for a CAI cause in reality it will only add 2-3 HP. it will also cause loss in fuel economy(so i have heard).

I have heard good things about K & N. Wheather it adds power or not who knows. But the fact it lasts the lifetime of the car is a great deal.

Nope that tiny little opening causes the most resistance in your <b>STOCK</b> intake.

You might get some gains if you put a K&N filter in but only if you increas the size of that opening.

There are a few units on the market that will allow you to do this but I believe (don't quote me) that just buying a CAI will be cheaper.

Also average gain from a <b>TRUE</b> CAI is 5-10hp an an I4<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Filters on the end of your mafs that are STILL in the engine bay= No HP whatsoever, Hence you are sucking in hot air, and you should of left your stock intake system on, it sucks in better than your K&N at the end of your mafs. The intake manifold on the l4 accent,elantra, tib, or any other l4 hyundai are already small as it is, You dont have a IROC-Z or a Z28 nore a big ass trans am with a 5.7 litre motor, Big motors have restritors on them, not your L4, I remember the conversation with Aaron, Rob, and I at his house saying someone gained quiet a bit of hourses just with a K&N filter and some other adjustments, but he was running a higher appilication engine ( v8 ) that already had a restricted air intake.

I agree with what autobot said, your only going to get HP if you strap that bastard on the end of a TRUE CAI... Untill then stop talking about putting filters on the end of your mafs to think it will make your car faster, because it won't.

Same thing applies for a Drop in, No hp gain whatsoever, I just wanted to tackle to birds with one stone to clear up some K&N bs!

Yeah K&N does sell a drop in filter. Its nice and expensive for the unit. save money go for CAI as it is the same lifetime warranty. Alos Tip never buy filters from fram. Had 2 of the faulty the rubber gasket(outer ) was twisted on one and another was warped. On the third one in 2months.. It finally works fine.
Yes I do realize that they suck but hey it was cheap and a temporary solution to not buying my CAI.
