Does K&N really own everyone else? Some guy was going on about K&N and how everything else is garbage. Are the filters on ebay that come with the cheaper CAI like BOMZ garbage? I thought someone had an article about how K&N isn't anything special.
K&N is just a brand name, and I highly doubt they own every other filter manufacturer. Their airfilters are made of gauze - which don't filter as well as a foam or paper filter, but allow the most air to flow. There are other manufacturers of gauze filters, though K&N is probably the most popular brand.
I don't know about the BOMZ intake personally, but IIRC the intake is a POS.
