Default Hello all

Hey everyone, new on here. I had an account on an f-150 forum but cant seem to find that, not sure if things got updated and lost my account or what. Well Ive got a 98' 150 basically stock. Just put on the K&N system on my truck. Anyone have any thought on it? did it give much horsepower, did it help with gas mileage? Ive only had it on for 3 days now, cant tell yet, seems to have a little more power, but now I feel like my truck rev's higher. Maybe Im just paying too much attention and notice the rev's more or what. Hope its not my trany going out.

Hi Rob!

Welcome to the F150 Forums. I have put CAI's on several vehicles and its more hype than outcome. To really get the best out of a CAI is to also reduce back pressure by opening the exhaust system, reducing engine temperature to 180F, moving to a colder plug and then doing a custom tune.

I just put a K&N filter and a Magnaflow catback system on my 2011 Explorer and saw a 1.5 MPG increase. As far as HP increase....have no idea, but I doubt any.
