Anybody have any idea if the K & N Air Intakes that are available for the rangers are worth the money? K & N claims an approx. 13 HP increase but those figures are produced by
K & N. but for 300$ I would like to know for sure. Anyone have an intake that they would recommend?
Definately don't spend $300 on one. They can be found on eBay or forums for less than that.
If you look at the overall design on a K&N vs. the stock air intake, they are prett much the same. Only differences will be primarily cosmetic. I've also heard that you can end up with bad heat soak with a whole K&N intake. Heat soak = POWER LOSS
Just stick with the stock motorcraft air filter. The stock intake is a cold air design anyway and with the oil-less filter you won't have to bother with getting the MAF gunked up which happens frequently with oiled filters.
dont believe the power claims, but i did experience slightly better mileage as well as having a filter that you can clean when it gets dirty, plus it sounds awesome. try and find one used if you can, i like my K&N FIPK but its not worth $300.
