I had already installed a K&N filter in my Nitro and that improved the gas mileage a couple mpg. Now, after installing the K&N intake, I didn't notice it get any better gas mileage. So whether you replace the whole intake with K&N, or you just replace the filter, your going to get about the same gas mileage upgrade. But, I can't complain because I didn't buy an SUV for the good gas mileage, haha. The REAL difference is the horsepower and throttle response! Usually when you STEP on the throttle it takes a second to kick in before it takes off... NOT ANYMORE! Whether I'm taking off from a stop sign, or I'm already going 30-40mph, when I step on the gas I feel it go! No more sluggish performance. It also has a deeper purrr now. I just need to get an exhaust system now. =) A++

This filter was everything i thought it would be. It still suprised me because i find it hard to keep my tires from spinning! It made my car sound better it has more power i never thought i would really feel the difference. Autoanything was really helpfull and I'll prolly look here first for the next upgrade on my vehicles

It increases the power of my Stealth, and makes the car have a better sound, but i already have a magnaflow exhaust so it sounds good anyway. But i dont know about gas milage cause i have only had it for a few days. I expected a little more but its still worth your money.

Removing the factory air box and mass air sensor from the engine was easy. However, getting the factory air box detached from the mass air-flow sensor was a bit tiedous because of poor engineering choices by Mitsubishi. The plastic housing that held the "screws" in place broke so the nut just spun the screw. However, that has nothing to do with K&N other than they could include a warning in the installation instructions. Also, be very careful of the aluminum(?) honeycomb in the mass air sensor. It's very pliable and can be damaged easily. It's even entirely possible that someone has already done so when they were installing a new factory air filter. Mine were damaged badly enough, I just removed them as I was worried flakes from the honeycomb could wind up in the engine. I'm not qualified to recommend this to someone, but it is what I did with no ill effects that I have noticed. The FIPK's installation was a snap. Everything fit together tightly and the bracket's that hold the filter in place fit exactly as they should against interior fender wall. You did have to pay attention to which one went on which side of the filter, but that's to be expected. Performance is noticably better. The engine grumbles more deeply, rev's a bit faster and you can really tell the air-flow as increased as the "whine" from the turbos you get from about 2K to 3K RMP's was louder. The only point I was worried was after I started the car for the first time. It really didn't want to idle. There were a couple of points that I thought it might fade and die. I bit the bullet, got it out on the road and drove it and it behaved just as it should. The idle is normal again. I can't explain it, but that's what I observed. If you don't have one of these on your 3000GT VR4, I highly recommend you get one.
