Order the top lid box today from KN they charged my $11.99 I believe for it. I have the drop in filter from them already not sure how much of a difference it would make to have the end be open?
That will depend on what drop-in filter you have!
Tip: The K & N filter listed for our Escapes is #2993
. It is a closed end filter. The K & N 57S-4000 intake kit comes with filter #9289
. This filter has a removable plug in the end to give you a open ended filter if desired. It will flow more air than the #2993
, and thus more noise. You have the option of leaving the plug in if you want. This filter #9289
is not listed for our Escapes, but is a drop-in replacement and can be purchased separately. Several members of this forum are currently running them in our cars.
