hey dudes...how often are u supposed to replace ur air filter
...i forgot when i last changed mine...its starting to turn from white to a grey color now...i just dont remember when i did it...i think last october...cause i changed my oil 2 times since then (haha amazed...thats what my car said...but now i do it every 5000).
any way im planning on getting a drop in k & N filter also...just for the gas milage boost...do you guys think it worth it? or should i just stick with fram? im a very cheap person but love quality...im thinking of buying a filter and swapping a fram air filter with the K & N filter...so i can buy a k & n filter for 5 bucks !!! haha. what you guys think?

recommended 30k miles for air filter replacement. with intake upgrade for honda cars the gain is hadly noticeable. can you honestly say that you can feel a 2hp gain at the top end?!

By itself the filter is nothing. Add headers, exhaust and ignition coil. Then you will understand the true potential of VTEC.

yea i understand what u guys are saying..im not a big fan of intakes and stuff...all i am concerned about is the gas milage...i just want a small amount better than what i have...amazingly i hit 325 miles on my tank and it didnt hit reserve..i was soo amazed...usually i would get like 280 max...

30k hu...ok i like that number...i think im around the 26k area...when i do my oil again i must change the filter...i give it 3 months more...
