Answer to "Why" K and N

The 2001-2002 3.5 V6 models produce 240 hp (180 kW) and 245 lb·ft of torque from 3000 to 5000 rpm. 2003-2006 model engine produces 265 hp (198 kW) and 253 lb·ft, this was done largely via modifications to the exhaust system to improve airflow. KnN filters are designed to increase such airflow and give more to the engine when needed. The end result is more horse power, better response and better mpg.

K and N designs their air filters to provide minimum restriction allowing high airflow into an engine; increased airflow will increase engine performance measured by horsepower and throttle response (torque).

K and N filters are also reusable so you never have to replace your air filter again; just clean it.

If I have explained well or forgotten something look here: K&N Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

2003 K&N Product Information for 33-2200
List Price: $ 72.65 K and N store Online Price: $54.99
Advance Auto is $51.99
And Amazon has them for $41.98 with Free Shipping

Can We beat that?

Gains are minimal if any on this car, they already breath pretty well.
They are known to oil down the sensors and are proven to to not filter as well as an OE filter.

Acura says not to use them.

Not worth screwng with for 5 HP at red line on a big heavy SUV. IMO

Oh yea, cleaning them is a PITA and they take a day to dry.
