K&N drops in and you don't have to get tuned. The buschur piece replaces the whole stock air box and you'll have to get tuned for that. Both have their advantages/disadvantages.

I've been thinking about picking one of these up before my tune in late May. I decided that if I do get one, I'm going to go for the Buschur filter. It's supposed to give slightly better gains over the K&N, and I can build on it later down the line by adding the piping for the full intake.

By the way, you can get the K&N from Amazon for under $55, and you get free shipping as well, so take that into consideration:

Direct link for the filter on Amazon

As I said though, I'd personally still go for the Buschur one for it's slightly better power gains and easy upgradibility down the line. Plus, not having to deal with re-oiling the filter is a big positive as well.

I'm not sure about the whole myth of K&N filters screwing up your MAF but it was enough to sway me towards buschurs filter solution.

Geese if you want a K&N I will sell you mine, it only has about 2k miles on it. I have recently purchase the Buschur's to go with my new Intercooler Piping.

I can let it go for $45.00 shipped. PM me if you want it.

There's not a myth - you're just confused between the two K&N products: the drop-in filter and the Typhoon. The drop-in is no problem other than you have to be sure it doesn't drop oil down onto the MAF. The Typhoon is the worst possible intake you can use on the Evo along with the Ebay Blue Intake of Death. The cone filter on the Typhoon is not a problem really, but the MAF pipe is horrid.

With any open-air intake, you need a retune.

basically you need a tune with every above average upgrade? I heard a rumor that you could reset your ecu or settings if you just unplug your battery. How much would a tune cost and could or should I wait to tune it after a few mods? let me know. Thanks

I don't know what an "above average upgrade is," but no, you don't have to tune for everything. You have tune for things that significant affect air/fuel and boost. An open-air filter has a drastic effect on airflow volume and how the air behaves when entering the MAF. This is why an intake requires a tune.

There's no rumor about resetting your ECU. You can unplug the negative terminal for a few mins, then reconnect it, and the ECU resets. This doesn't really do anything related to this topic.

A tune will cost anywhere from $50-750, depending on the tuner and type of tune.

You should wait to tune after a few mods only if you plan to do those mods in a short timespan. Otherwise, you should get tuned right away - it's the most important mod.

Dynoflash is $200 for any Evo when doing a mail-in flash. The $32 is for shipping, I guess.

He also does e-flashes for $50 if you use EcuFlash - he was the first tuner to offer them.

The only thing I don't like about my buschur intake is its freaking loud when winding through the gears. For all the little ricer boys who replace the bov's to hear the PSSST, this works just as well . I've managed to "tune myself" to ignore it.

The sound is annoying but no mod on my car motivated me to get a radio more than the whine of the Walboro pump. Making more power just makes more noise but that's a tradeoff that anyone who mods has to deal with.

Got my Buschur MAF Pipe and Filter today, along with my Kevlar timing Belt! I want to put it on so bad but I need to wait until the 8th when I am getting tuned. I feel like a kid in a candy store with parts laying around but cannot put them on! it's so frustrating!
