Default air filter replacement.

Not sure if anyone has delt with this yet. But my air intake filter is super dirty! I was looking to replace it. Now in the past i went K&N drop in right away. But this is an insight... So has anyone played around with new filters yet and if so did you notice any increases or decreases?


Also side note... Coming to you as a gear-head grease-monkey. The engine bay has so much room to work... I might have squealed like a gitty school girl hahaha. I'm so used to cutting up my hand just for simple parts replacements.

The back pressure in an insight intake is already so low it's an outlier. All K&N can do for you is poor filtration.

Yes...most of us have dealt with Air filter replacement

After going through a few crappy Chinese made eBay stuff (for my other cars), I'm sticking with OEM filters for the Insight at least.
