Default Is the K&N filter box the best you can get?

Just bought my first PT, its a 2003GT, and I want to start upgrading the engine. Is the K&N filter box about the best option for a cold air intake? Just would like some input before I start spending money. Any info about preformance parts would be appreciated. Thanks ryeguy

The cold air intake Im looking at is the K&N Fuel injection preformance kit. Is it worth the cash or should I use something else?

Welcome.
I have the K&N FIPK on my turbo, and I love it, but I think an even better intake is the K&N Apollo, which is truly sealed and sucks in only cold air from the fender hole.
I sent you an email...

Yet another option, which is even cheaper, is to put a K&N dropin filter into your stock airbox. Then remove the white donut from the lid of your airbox, trim the snorkel i the bottom, and add a hard turbo to airbox pipe, either AMX's or the VAK pipe. Works as good or better (and it's been tested) than ANY so called cold air kit on the market.
