Simple job to do, No it won't cause problems in the long run,

you will need to clean the air filter every so often. ( I clean mine twice a year )

i had one on a focus but when i took it off it went slow
whats the different with a cheaper kit than k+n

would it drink more petrol?

You will use more fuel, Because the airflow going into the engine will be less restricted, and the engine will be burning fuel alot quicker , So yes you will use more fuel, Depends how hard your pushing the engine,

I noticed the difference, Car was quicker by a fraction , But went through fuel quicker

there is a slight difference between cheaper and expensive kits, All mostly do the same thing,

( I still dont know why people waste money on the small mushroom filters )
