BMC, then K&N, however the differences are HIGHLY questionable and if you notice it i would laugh at people hwo say they can in a stock setup, sorry.
No more ot be said.

If your still not satisfied, try searching these forums, many many debates have been had.

I highly doubt there's any difference really., I mean youre comparing two of the leading companies! You'd be hard pressed to find any flow testst hat arn't biased.

Better filtering? or better air flow.

Better filtering is not better air flow.

Well if you already knew this, why did you ask?
I told you which is "said" to be better as per the AUTOSPEED filter FLOW tests, not filtration tests.
The price aside i dont think there is any NOTICABLE difference, just go which even your pocket would rather, as you wont notice a difference.
If your going SS inductions, obviously money is no issue, so just go the BMC and the SS inductins kit n youve got best of the best - must make it feel faster no? :lol:

Might sound like i like bmc, well i do, but to be truely honest, and read this; I use k&n as the price between the two is pointless and im not into throwing money down the drain.

Hey look on the packaging for both. It should say "Money Back Gaurentee, if your not completely satisfied" Buy both.

Then drive your car at full throttle up the street

1st - No air filter (it will be ok for one little test)

2nd - K&N

3rd - BMC

4th - Stock

Take back the one you dont like or both if you don't feel any difference. Even better get someone else to change the air filer so your subjective ratings are not affected.

Post here with results!

That's actually a really good idea Spork, doing a blind test like that. Repeat it like 5 times and check your results. I think no filter will be noticed, but the others wont be.
Also, am I the only one that noticed littlebrat75's four consecutive "hi"s?
