I installed a 10x3 K&N open element air cleaner about a month ago. Power
went up slightly, GPM went down, BIG TIME, from between 16-18 to 12-14. I
had a MP SBEC on order so I dealt with it until I had it installed.(Got it
used for $80+shipping!!!). NO difference in gas milage, very big kick in
the butt difference. Installed Flowmaster cat back dual exhaust, NO GPM
difference, but a big ego stroker. I haven't replaced the open element air
with the stock closed air cleaner (92s have the round ACs with fresh air
flex tube), so I don't know if it would improve my gas milage or not. My
question is if many other DMLers have seen a significant decrease in GPM
with the open element K&Ns(I have noticed a couple of people express this
already), and what improvements could be made without reverting back to the
stock air cleaner.
