    Anybody used one of these before? They claim to be better than K&N's. Here's the site: http://www.amsoil.com/products/ts.html

    E-town baby!
    I like to give new products the benifit of the doubt but in this case I think they are full of sh!t!
    Did you see they're comparison graph? Not only do they claim to be better than K&N but they also show the cheap crappy paper element filter as having the same airflow as K&N and lasting just as long. Lets be honest here we all know the K&n outflows just about any other filter on the market and lasts just about forever. I hate companies that lie and mislead about their competitors just to try and make a sale.
    How about some hard numbers? Did you see CFM of flow on an identical engine for the 4 filters being compared? I think AMSOIL would be scared to go head to head with K&N because they know they are lying!

    Whew, what a rant [​IMG]

    I like their oil, but I would stick with K&N for the air filtering duties!
