      Unhappy K&N Filter change on Getz Prime 1.3 GLS

      Hello Friends,

      I have changed the stock air filter on my Getz prime 1.3 GLS to K&N Stock Filter, for the following reasons,

      1. Increase in performance at lower RPMs (with AC on).
      2. Slight increase in FE.

      2 things that I noticed after the change,

      1. As expected the silent NVH of Getz has become bit louder after the change, which is fine.
      2. I was not able to understand is that suddenly I feel my black horse is finding it difficult to rev-up speeds, which was smooth earlier with normal filter. With higher RPMs I find the sound of bit more louder than before.

      I would like have expert advises, to know if anything is missed as part of changing the Air Filter to K&N.

      nothing is missing Robert. a restrictive setup is good for low end torque. but as you keep revving higher, your engine starts starving. a free intake hurts the low end a little but opens up the top end. besides the noise, have you noticed any change in feel in the top end?

      I haven't tried a long drive though after the change apart from the normal bumper to bumper traffic, but had a quick short drive to BIAL last night, could notice that on top gear was requesting for more press on the Accelerator pedal which was quiet a surprise as my dark horse when driving in top gear needed a slighter touch on the A pedal with old filter.

      I am not sure, probably I need to get used to be with K&N filter I guess.
