With many brand names online/in-store, etc was wondering....so who's the best overall if there is any?? My Tahoe already has the K&N one, which the previous owner already had it installed before I bought it. Now I'm thinking my little s10 p/u deserves one. Pricing ranges from 55-250.

So....which to get.....K&N, Volant, some other off brand, ??

That's what they say anyway...unless it's a lie to get you to buy and believe it.

I still have one because 1) I like the sound and 2) I don't have to worry about replacing the filter.

I bought a cheap one off ebay and replaced the filter with a higher quality k&n filter... I don't notice any difference between the two filters - ebay one had similar quality.

I bought one off ebay because when I put triple alt bracket on stock box wont fit //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/frown.gif.a3531fa0534503350665a1e957861287.gif I would like to have the stock one on it still. But it what I had to do. I actually think its got less horsepower at the bottom end but seem to do better in higher rpms so I dont think you gain power I think it just moves it around some ! But I kinda want to get the K&N to see if its any better.

I went from regular drop in filter to a k&n drop in filter to a k&n pod filter on my Titan, I noticed a bit of loss in bottom end as well, I really don't like the way it feels when towing but when I get on it to pass people it roars and feels great. Wish I had access to a dyno to see if it really shifted the power or if it's all in my head.

I love my Titan

2011 Crew Cab 4x4 Big Tow, it does haul *** for the size of the truck. Got her with 37k miles, still under warranty for $18k

Same weekend got my lady a 2007 Scion TC with 40k Miles for $6500

Both far under KBB and both haven't had a single issue yet... I keep up on my vehicles well though, Royal purple oil, transmission flush, etc. I was pretty happy... they wanted 10k for the TC but I jewed them down to 6500 and they took it (A friend had been talking to this lady, it wasn't even up for sale..she co-signed for her grandaughter who ditched out accross the states so the lady just needed to get rid of it for what she still owed) I didn't expect them to take the 1st offer lol

Titan gets about 14 MPG on a good day lol

I've got a cold air intake and throttle body spacer on my truck. Not sure what brands, but I could check at noon when I leave school if you want
