Excited about the new forum. Just something to throw out there. Obviously the 2.8 is rated at 190hp as we all know, but I've heard some people dynoing at stock and getting much more than that. Can anyone confirm?
Also wondering about my K&N air filter...someone told me it'd give me 4-5hp at the crank and 2-3 at the wheels, and I've also heard that it does nothing. Thoughts, opinions?

you could always do those dyno tests and find out. I don't recall seeing anything posted.

2-3 HP (or whatever power it is from the filter) will be negligable, and not really noticable. In the big scheme of things, stuff adds up though. :shrug:

Have you ever noticed that a dirty air filter robs a car of power? Why?
Same reason why a K&N will give you additional hp over the stock filter.
I felt a big difference when I put mine in.
I also took this pre-filter screen out.
I noticed about 35hp+ from this mod alone. I decided I didn't need a chip afterall. =)

god I hope this doesn't turn into a ricer bench racing forum.
you did not get 35HP from this.

I'm thinking that's a really bad idea, even though you're getting more airflow...

unless there is something else I'm not aware of. You'd have the take the engine out to measure crank horsepower.
