Ebay CAI

Want to buy a k & n filter for my 2004 mustang. I can get a used one for 20 bucks w/ about 10k miles of wear, new one for bout 40, or a generic CAI system w/ a K & N filter for about 90 bucks. I was wondering if the entire system was worth the extra 50 bucks or if the filter, by itself, made most of the difference.

Damn I feel ripped off. I got mine for (59.95 + 24.95 shipping) 8.25% sales tax + 3 insurance= $94.90. Did I get ripped off? It's a K & N filter. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ayphotohosting
Check it out yourself.

Probably about .1 to .15. It's just a CAI... not a flux capasitor

.1 is equivilant to about a whole car length isn't it? That's more than I expected. I think that's a lot.

What's a flux capasitor? How much are they? How do they work? Where can I get one? How much faster should I expect to run...1/4, hp gain, tq gain?

A tenth of a second isnt a ton, but it helps.

And if you dont know what a Flux Capasitor is, might I suggest watching the movie trilogy entitled "Back to the Future".

Are you serious?

A Flux Capasitor doesnt exist.... it was what enabled Doc to go back into the future in the movie....

Rellik was using it as a Joke

They don't go in the wheel. You install them on top of each piston...they used to pack an extra punch in every stroke generating greater amounts of energy=hp. And all this time I felt like the rookie, hmm

Did you read my CAI article at all? The very last section also refers to the CryO2 system! For crying out loud, please read it!
