Hmm....you're not really going to notice much difference in a drop in, as so I've heard so far, but the flow and filteration will improve, and the filter lasts a lot longer than regular type OEM air filters. I'm not big on the numbers, because they really don't mean much from the seat of the pants feel that you're actually getting. Also, CAI's have been dyno proven from 7-12 HP depending on application. I know that my car pulls really hard at 4k+. POP charger claims at max 5 HP, and also has been dynoed in that area by a number of applications and cars. If you don't want to mod, I definitely would pick up a drop in.tgenius said:Guys.. I don't wanna mod my car all that much. Will I notice a Difference usin the K&N Air Filter on my 2000 SE Auto?

The only reason my gas gets low is because of the extra little lead I have in my foot with my exhaust and CAI. Overall, my gas is better with the mods, I think.tgenius said:I'm just concerned as my gas milage sucks right now.. I want to take it to the dealer to fix. I'm also on a REALLY tight budget..as I'm buyin a house in less than a year.. I want to help as much as possible.. but cost is a major detractor right now.
Well, K&N filters last a lot longer than stock air filters, and they flow better with better filteration. That should sum it up for you right there, unless you don't want to spend 50 bucks right off the bat.tgenius said:I can't drive stick..plus I do mostly city driving..where its stop-go..and I like my automatic.. it goes pretty quick..just tryin to figure out if the filter is worth the 50 bucks
