15hp is 15hp any day of the week. If you want more, spend more money nothing is free but dont take my word for it. If you cant feel 15hp, get a better running seat...lmao

There is no debate. You're acting like a child; as if were all supposed to go search the internet to backup your argument when everyone disagrees with you. You're even trying to change what vehicle this was about.
Personally, I don't believe you have bought and installed 15 of these, and based off your response you sound like a teenager who doesn't know jack****.

Do NOT let this turn into a circus again.

Civil discussion is fine, facts and opinions are fine, any demeaning posts, back and forth banter, etc, will result in the thread being locked and vacations issues.

I have no problem with facts. I posted my search and got the result I took a screen shot of. I believe 15hp is a great result out of a mod that is essentially cheap. I've seen head work cost more and less gains. For the money.

I found a used k+n cold air kit. I'm trading my stock box and paying 25 bucks. It's a distance away but I'll make the drive as soon as the deep freeze subsides. Its minus 34c and dropping.

With all the searching I've done I'm satisfied that spending the money on a k+n filter is worth the money. If I had 300 bucks I would spend it. I'm too poor to pay the money. But the k+n also should last a million miles so. My last one lasted 11 years of service in 2 vehicles.

I'll stop. This is a waste of energy.
