Need tips for performance improvement

Need tips for performance improvement

Postby larspetter123 [OP] » April 26th 2014, 5:59pm

Hi,
I am looking for performance improvements for my -97 AWD. Will an aftermarket airfilter like KN, or a cold air intake give any gain in performance?

If you have any experience with a specific product, please share.

Thanks,

Lars Petter

Not really. As for "Cold Air Intake", unless you plumb something to pull in cooler air from outside under the hood, your IAT's are going to be higher which pulls timing and power.

Even with a Jet Performance Programmer, you won't notice any meaningful gains.
