3.7 XK - Is K&N (or any other) Intake worth it?
Sorry for the new thread on this topic that has been discussed before, but I have read through the previous threads and didn't get the answers I was looking for.
For the few XK owners out there with the V6 and the K&N intake (or any other), is it worth it? Would you buy it again?
The negative I have heard is that the filter isn't great in dusty conditions, but living in Maine, that is not a concern to me. I am looking at the 57 series and the dyno tests claim a 7.5hp increase, but I don't always trust those numbers from the production company, as I am sure they are inflated. According to your "seat test," do you notice more throttle response or torque?
The stock V6 has the power I need 95% of the time, but I am interested in adding an intake as I will be replacing the exhaust system very soon and have always been under the impression that the exhaust upgrade is pointless from a performance standpoint if you aren't getting more air into the engine.
Pleae chime in, even if you don't have this exact intake. I would like to hear all opinions.
