Most of the big name companies do high flow filters in there kits, so I'm guessing that they probably have done some testing...

Either that or they're just chucking it in with a bit of a mark up on the kit cause the brand names make them seem "better"...

It's not going to make much of a difference in the real world. It's more of a wank thing then anything.

Either way, I don't see it doing any harm, it's a reuseable filter so means you won't have to replace it in the future. Even if it doesn't give you any benefit, it's unlikely to do the oposite (restrict power).

I put a k & n in my xr6t, made pretty much s**t all difference. BUt still worth while, alot better for your motor.

technically, no, the people most concerned with keeping dirt out of your engine, is the people who have to put 3ys or 100000km warranty on it, what does K&N care about whether your motor dies...???

the paper element is restrictive because it is doing its job well, which is to filter the incoming air of all dirt

Conytact spray? I think it's just oil. Price will also depend on the size of the bottle, comes in a few different sizes.
