Update: Cone Filter VS Drop in Filter .....

i was running a cone filter without any type of heat shield... was getting about 14-16 mpg....like i said in the thread a few days ago, it sounded good but i really didn't feel any performance gains,

since my cone filter was pretty much destroyed, i put my old (recharged) k&n drop in filter, i've been driving the same and am now getting 16-18 mpg...

i am going to make a "homemade heat shield" and put another cone on to see if i notice any difference in mpg's.....

sorry if this is stupid info....just thought i'd let others know

Did the same thing, went back to the drop in and stayed there.

I put my box and drop in K&N for a wheeling trip months ago and just never went back to the cone. I am still working on a Red-Neck low profile snorkle. Just haven't figured out what to use as a bonnet/cover/top.

I feel a decent size difference between my drop in and cone filter in performance. Also, the cone filter gets a measily 1-2 mpg over the drop in too. But then again, I do have exhaust mods as well as header wrap on my header... so maybe that's what's helping it.... Is their any way to use the stock box as a heat shield for the cone filter?
