According to the K&N site the average gain in HP @ 6000rpm is almost double with the FIPK. How is this possible? arent they both the same design only different materials? also will there be a noticabe difference in sound from the aluminim compared to the HDPE?

because the FIPK removes the resonator crap that blocks all the air (the part that says Vortech then some numbers depending on what motor you have)

and the 77 just gets rid of the air bot and the piping and attaches to your resonator box thingey :lol:

Need to get the correct info -- The K&N 77 Series does not use the "resonator crap that blocks all the air". I had one on my Canyon and really liked the way it looked and performed.

just looked it up and they both get rid of the "resonator crap that blocks all the air" :lol:

th main diffrence is that the 77 is made of aluminum and FIPK is made out of plastic.....the plastic has more HP because it absorbs less heat that the aluminum one......but its so shinny :D!!!!


thanks for catching me xseler been at work since 8:00am :lol:
