Re: K&N Air Filters - 560SL

I have had my K&N filter in my 1988 560SL for the last 8 years. Have not seen any problems with the filter in all that time. Very low maintenance. In regards to a difference, I noticed two things. First, there was a noticeable response to partial and full throttle response. Second, there is a slightly increased level of noise in the engine compartment due to the increased intake of air. Other than that, everything else is the same. Hope this helps.

i also notice an increase in throttle response in the kickdown. the intake is a little louder and has a very pleasing 'performance' whine when working hard. sounds much better than stock. compared to the OEM, this filter is much smaller and allows more air into the intake<br>
