Does Fram actually have an Intake for our Xs or is it only the drop in filter. I'm seeing lots on the filter, but nothing on the intake.Also, I found thishttp://www.fram.com/rebate/pdf/Airhog_20.pdf
Its a 20 dollar rebate for purchasing an air hog. Granted it is a mail in rebate and its a pain in the ass, but its still 20 dollars back 6-8 weeks later.
This is the ink to the thread that Xterrafield talks about winning the Air Hog system.
I am not so sure about if the Fram filter is same as the nanotechnology Amsoil filter. From what I read I thought it was. No oil, same type claims and I know someone makes that filter for Amsoil so they can do same for Fram.
Being a dealer, I have to take a class on all this and of course they tell you why to buy the Amsoil, But very convincing for sure, I bought one.
Shown here , Amsoil compared to K&N Amsiol filters better allowing longer oil use, (25K or 1 year with amsoil) If you use same oil and a K&N the warranty on the oil is not going to fly, it allows to much dirt to pass. If you have a k&n and change at 3K miles, you will be ok. You hope.
Look at the difference, Amsoil gets same flow and better filtration by having much more area of filter, Deeper, more surface.
Ok, why I would not worry about a new intake so much is that we are already getting cold air. In below picture, this is laying down looking up at the fender on driver side with inner fender removed. Where that black Air tube comes out and bends, that is where your intake draws from. I just added the black tube for more water resistance and less dust draw since I have a Shrockworks front bumper and that area is more exposed, Plus, when you angle the tube up as you go back, you get a deeper capability. But you know we should not go past top of wheels or we are taking a risk of water intrusion. See the snork thread. http://thenewx.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=158&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=snork&start=0
But for those that want a intake, there could be a gain in just the way it draws, the smoothness of the inside and the way it swirls the air as it draws all can be factors in making more HP and MPG. But after a lot of con$ideration, I just did the Amsoil Filter (After tossing the K&N) and the intake tube in the fender. $80 Mod. I'll hold here and see when and IF they come out with a snork. Persoanlly I'd like to have an intake like mine that pops out the side of fender has a rotating type scoop on the side about where a snork would go in, and have an attachment Snork that could be added at the scoop when needed (Waterproof) but removed for cool air and less drag at highway speeds. BUT, Why?
But.... As I said, our X is really not going to do any of this.
