Save your time..return it now before you hurt performance. The filters are typically cheap garbage that will hold water instead of repel it, and the short ram will pull hot engine bay temp air into your intake which hurts your performance.

You'd get better performance from your stock airbox.

First, you should put your year and trim level in your signature, so we know what gen this going on.

Regardless of generation, it is probably one of the worst intakes you can get, sorry to say, as it is so short. It will suck in nothing but hot air. I do suggest if the seller accepts returns, to return it and fab up your own intake.

The K&N, Amsoil or Airhog all appear to be good quality filters for the money.

On the custom intake.. look up rice pipe and FWI here to be up to speed on what we've found works well.
