I saw a guy on youtube that put a cone air filter. How would you do this with all the lines going to the air filter box?

Well I think you can do this by removing the whole air filter box and maybe resonator. But I don't think that anyone here has done this. People around here like to keep their car stock :)

By the way, I've seen a "performance" filter on K&N's website, same size as the original so you can keep the air filter box. Probably the biggest advantage would be that you can clean the filter instead of changing it.

Nissan used the same size air filter for about 30 years so there's still a nice aftermarket supply of these. Here's the K&N for $34 no tax and free shipping from ... ef=lh_ni_t

I was wondering if I use a K&N air filter for my 95 Accord EX coupe, would I have better performance or fuel consumption? Is it really worth?
