Okay, things going against your post:
- Post #1 is of a commercial nature
- Spammer formatting

Things going for your post:
- Doesn't seem to spam a personal website
- Spam or not, it is on-topic.
- You seem to be Canadian. :D

Post is saved 3-2, pending further investigation.

Now if you're a robot, come back and tell us how you got past my genius robot trap, please.

Being Canadian is in the plus column of your list! That snot fair! In the future, when you are moderating my posts, I insist you give me two points in the plus column for being a Texan. :peace:

I picked up my K&N Air Filter today.... Got the 15% discount and absolutely no hassle with my printed $10 off coupon.

After some (seat of the pants) testing with 3 different configurations in my Stock 2006 Escape XLT (2WD) 3.0L with 68,000km using....
1. Stock (paper) filter.
2. K&N Radial (cone) Performace filter.
3. K&N (Drop-in) Performance Panel filter.
I have to conclude that the new K&N drop-in panel filter is a much better setup than an OEM paper filter and an exposed in the engine bay K&N Radial (cone) filter.

Using the Stock paper filter gives the Escape a smooth OEM feel, pickup (ride) and sound.
Taking the back half of the airbox apart from the Mass Airflow section of intake and inserting an exposed K&N radial (cone) filter gives the Escape a throaty sound (at WOT) and felt slightly better pickup in the low RPM range... I actually felt a loss of performance (pickup) at WOT in the mid-range to higher RPM's, above 80km/h.
The greatest feel and ride came from the K&N drop-in, replacement filter after reconnecting the intake airbox box section back to stock. The Escape had a smooth (OEM) sound, not much change in the Low RPM's (to speak about) but the Mid-range torque and pull was very noticable above 80km/h. WOT pulls hard and continues to pull hard until the gas pedal is released.

I would recommend a drop-in replacement K&N filter to any vehicle owner. I had one in my 1992 Subaru Legacy Turbo (all original with 355,000km) it pulled strong and the Escape pulls slightly stronger now too.

Fits in the Box.... Direct replacement!
441 CFM (as opposed to 881 CFM from a round filter)

I tried an aftermarket (round) filter but it was sucking in the hot engine bay air and didn't seem to make more HP or torque and it actually felt like there was less power in the Mid-High RPM range... It Would be much more effective if a round filter was installed inside a COLD AIR INTAKE.

...A stock airbox setup with a panel filter is much closer to a Cold Air Intake than just a round filter fitted to the intake

Its awesome that they are willing to make one for your application... Can you tell us what the cost of the custom filter is?
Is it gonna fit in your airbox or be exposed?
