I am planning to change my intake tube and filter, and heatshield in the next few weeks. While reading older posts I have realized that many people do not like the K&N Filters. Would I be better off using a paper cone filter? Do all newer mustangs come with a cone filter, should I just use the Fram replacement for a new mustang? How many more cfm would a paper cone be better than the stock pannel.
Thanks
Will

I had a K&N panel filter in my car. I liked it. I still have it but I took it out because I need to clean it. I don't have the stuff to re-oil it so I put a paper filter in there for now. There's nothing wrong with K&N filters. I've used them for the last 15 years in various cars I owned that were worth putting one in. ;) Inlcuding a "ram air" setup on a Grand National. You'll get all sorts of pros and cons on K&N. Boils down to this: if you like it buy it. Follow the directions that K&N gives you on how to clean and re-oil the filter and you'll have no problems. I'll eventually get around to cleaning it and putting it back in the car.

k & n's flow good but don't filter for ****, and if you over oil it it can mess up your MAF. I've been using a paper filter out of a mustang on my mark viii. i had a k and n on my last one for 70k miles though, never had a problem.

you can use any cone filter as long as you can clamp it to the maf and it fits
regardless of which one you decide you really won't get any hp, just a nice intake sound
here's a pic of mine:

my 98 f150 has a paper cone filter, and the new mustangs do also.

You will have to measure the size to make sure you can get it to fit.

Best thing to do would be to buy the mustang airbox and make that work.

mostly the negative comment on the k&n is their fipk set. way overprice for a cone with few easy to fabricate brackets.

buy the normal k&n cone filter and make your own bracket and you will save bunch of bucks.

I put in a cone filter today and now every time I rev the engine it sounds like I have a blow-off valve...it's pretty cool, but I don't think it really added any power or anything...
