time for a new air filter

well since i'm getting a message that i haven't posted in over three weeks and i'm in the market for an air filter, what are some opinions/experiences? i'm just under 30,000 and at my 27k oil change they told me my filter was going to need replaced. i have used the K&N filters in the past but haven't noticed any improvement in MPG. what do you guys recommend for a 2006 3.7?

I've always used K&N. No real gains notice. That 1 million mile warranty thing is nice. I know most will say get a CAI. I've heard good things about "Green Filters".

Are you using the "drop in" replacement filters or CAI system?

For a replacement, I'd go with the K&N. Even if you gain nothing with performance (although you probably will, probably unnoticeable to YOU though), that million mile warranty sure is nice. No worries about having to buy new ones every several thousand miles, etc.

Go with a Napa or go high end with the Amsoil. A K&N will let it breathe better, but the tradeoff is more dirt getting into the engine. It's not worth it for the minimal performance / MPG increase with the drop in or even the FIPK.

Every K&N I've used in the past has trapped WAY more dirt than others. ??

I just replace every 15k miles, w/ the stock air filter element. That's just like 10 bucks and ya just do a quick swap under the hood.

I'm going to see if I can get the AFE II for the LX platform Chrysler / DOdges will fit in our Jeeps...........if so its the one I would use. Its the only one I've seen (mass produced) that actually made any difference on a HEMI.

FOr the magority of owners.......the stocker is just fine

I use K&N for several years. I may not experience increase in mpg though it doesn't give me headache at all.
