K&N FIPK kit for GTO, any HP #'s?

Just wonderinf if anyone has dyno'd their GTO before and after installing a K&N FIPK kit, or just a K&N replacement filter for the stock air box? Does anyone make a intake tube that can be used with the stock air box?

There is a good pic. Coudn't find any dyno sheets on the KandN website. Setup looks nice though.

I just installed a K&N Replacement Filter today in my stock air box. And I definately felt a slight improvement in acceleration. Also, the LS1 Engine is breathing better.

I installed a replacement K & N filter. I felt the car ran a little stronger, but have no hard evidence to back this up. You can buy direct from K & N online, go to their website.

Be careful, there is a bulletin out to dealers telling them not to warranty certain things on the GTO, that have an "oiled" filter installed.

The oil from the filter is supposed to coat the tiny heated filament wire in the mass air flow senor, and cause the sensor to give bad info to the PCM (or just fail). The problem has developed mainly on the full size trucks because the MAF is located so close to the airbox. The GTO has the same MAF location issue.
My 97 F-body has had a cold air kit for years now, but the MAF is a good 30" to 36" away from the pre-oiled element.
If you get any kind of a check engine light or concern, put your stock airbox back on before you go to the dealer. You don't want to give them any ammo to bounce you out of there.

just don't over-oil the filter and you'll be in business...

I've run K&N's for years on various equipment and NEVER had an issue, even from dealers; now if you showed up with a big oily mess, I'm sure it would be a different story...
