What kind of issues are you having? If you removed the resonator i would just keep the drop in filter.

I am curious to hear the results of this as well... My avg MPG output is about 35 or so (both OBC and miles/tank gallons), and I do a fair bit of city and highway driving with a Typhoon 69 CAI. Just gotta keep your foot out of it and drive like a normal person 90% of the time. smile.gif

K&N filters have only one advantage... reuse of filter (you need at least 3 OEM filter changes to pay off the K&N cost)
You will not get better mileage or performance from K&N... if you think your getting better performance you're under the placebo effect :=)
