In your opinion, which is the better air filter out of the two?
Ive had mixed responses, but have heard that the KingDragon flows better than the K&N?

It's to go in an EL XR8 with an SS induction kit before the UniChip goes in next week..

Any help would be much appreciated! :lol:

I think you might just have to take a punt on one or the other. I chose the K&N filter and am happy with it and due to the fact that they last for such a long time I'm not willing to replace it just to find out if I get an extra kilowatt difference.

I think, from memory, the KingDragon for my car is about $30 cheaper than the K&N one.. So not too much difference? :?

On the SS Inductions site for my model car theyre promoting the KingDragon series.. So.. I dunno!? lol

I went K&N, mostly because no one I knew knows about KingDragon, so I figured, go with word of mouth.

with all the filters being close to the same, a lot comes down to personal opinion anyways - people may have had a good/bad experience with a particular filter, which will alter their opinions - i find it doubtful there would really be much difference between many of the performance filters at all.
