i want to run the cone filter but just be4 service i want to pluck the original stuff back.
i am keen on running the KN 57i kit

once you have done it it takes 20mins to go from KN57i to stock and then 20min back to KN57i

I changed mine twice and i still had the original clamps etc in place when i traded her in ;)


how did you keep the original clips on?

easy :D

original clips are removed and kept in place on pipes with the pipes being taken out.

then you use the clamps provided with the KN kit.

so easy ;)

nope and even a little water on the filter wont have much effect except give you a little extra power as it cools the air down more LOL as long as the filter isnt drenched you should be fine
