New Filter

Wanted to get a K&N racing filter for my 330, but someone told me the car comes stock with a racing filter (not K&N) in the intake.

someone lied to you.












They come with a factory packed filter, nothing special and restrictive. Also a carbon filter that restrict the air more.

Remove both, add a K&N and be happy

Get the K&N. You will notice the difference and should see better MPGs as well
