heres some thought....im not talking about a ranger but it has to do with k&n
filters.....
On my old grand national (turbocharged), when i went from the stock paper (unclogged) filter to a K&N cone air filter, i GAINED 3 lbs of boost from the turbocharger.

That's extremely strange, normally the boost is limited by the wastegate, but being a GM product, anything is possible!!

DO NOT USE K&N FILTERS if you cherish the life of your engine.




Disclaimer: no 3.0 liter engines were harmed but the Glock was real

this by far is the best post ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this picture is proof of the silliness of posting the same argument over and over. It is pretty funny though. I'm going to link it every time I see another K&N debate going on. I think as entertaining as it is the same fight does get old.
