K&N Aircharger Kit

Has anyone put one of these (K&N 63-2578) on their Mustang? How did it work out for you?

On a related note: the K&N does not have a port for the intake resonator hose and the Air Raid has a option for using it or deleting it. Has anyone deleted their intake resonator? What effect did it have on sound in the cockpit?

Do some searching, everything I've read said they're not worth it. Basically, they flow a bit better, but let more contaminants through...not worth the trade off for the like 1-3hp you might get. Everything I've read said the stock intake is pretty much best, any gains from even aftermarket tunes are usually attributed to the tune. In short, not worth it.

I know that they're not worth it in terms of performance. Neither was the splitter, stripes, or strut tower brace.

I've had K&N FIPKs on almost every vehicle I've owned for the past 15 years. The only one where I could feel a real gain was an S-10. I've never had a problem with contaminants getting through or even heard of such a problem except for people who think they need to clean them every year and they oil them wrong (or don't bother oiling them at all).

I was asking because you don't see the Mustang crowd going for the K&N anymore. Everyone is buying the Airaids, which used to be for ricers only. I was wondering if people were having bad experiences with the K&N intake or they were just saving some money because they all do about the same thing.

Went with the Airaid for two reasons:

1) Allows me to use the intake resonator...or not. Its up to me.

2) It has a removable venturi that lets me run the factory tune until the warranty expires and then I can pull it out and get a tune.
