I have had years of problems with my Fiat 124 running too rich. I had the carb rebuilt twice, but it still was too rich. I was told I had to have the carb re-jetted. I bought a K&N air filter and the first thing I noticed was that the engine idle was 200 rpm higher. Then I took it for a drive and wow! The Fiat had the same power as when I bought it over thirty years ago. I still can’t get over how great the car runs now. My service shop said that the air filter in my wife’s Camry was old and needed to be replaced. I took it out to check it and yes, it did look like it needed to be replaced. So, of course I bought a K&N for the Camry. I didn’t notice any more power, but I did notice that our standard 70 mile loop for major monthly shopping was taking a bit less gas. Lately I have been in the process of restoring a 1973 Datsun. I had the carb rebuilt and the car ran briefly. I sent the carb back and thank goodness the guys gave me a much reduced price to rebuild it again. They told me the carb was coated inside with a lot of residue. So before installing the re-re- built carb, I took out the gas tank and I was completely stunned as to how much goo there was in the tank. I had the tank boiled out. Then I had some of the fuel line replaced and had the remainder flushed out. I replaced the fuel filter and replaced the fuel pump with a replica of the original pump. I put on the carb and the engine started great. But the engine would not idle (yes I did have the idle solenoid connected). Then I realized that the car did idle when the air filter was not on. I did several tests to confirm this. I then ordered a K&N for the Datsun. Low and behold the car ran and idled perfectly. Now some say that K&N are too expensive, but if you look at the lifespan of the filters, it can be seen that in the long run, K&N filters are economical. There is another plus to K&N, just think of what goes through the mind of a prospective car buyer when he or she sees a K&N sticker on your air cleaner. Probably something like, "Hmmm, the owner wanted to take the best care of the car."

I installed this on a 1988 VW Polo. It had a horrible average paper filter that was barely cleaning the air even though it was new. With the K&N, it truly is a different story. It cleans the air better and makes it run happier. Many thanks for this fantastic product.
