From what I can tell it looks like it, according to what they say it fits. I wish they had a pic of it on the car though. But the price seems good too.

Haven't we been through this EXACT same item before? It still looks like a very cheap knock off & besides, this item doesn't even appear in any of the engine pics either! Therefore, prove it to me that it will work!

FYI: I dont think that filter is K&N, but it looks like the same type of filtering media. (some people are picky about that). I would be wary if they dont have a pic of their product on the engine, but thats just me.

I'm also cautious of no installed pic. Couple aurora guys bought something like this off ebay and didn't even fit. Dosen't mean it won't either, could be hit or miss, check out sellers feedback, see if you can return it too. Definitly not going to be a real K&N though, me personal opted for the a real K&N with my Thrasher CAI kit, Not to hard to cut and make fit, looks great under the hood to!

I think I'll just invest in a panel K&N filter for my car in this case.

If id ever want to do some uber customization I would remove the high beam (inner light) outta and run a tube from my intake to my headlight cover.. When I need more juice I turn my lights on, doors open, and My cone is sitting right there collecting all the air.
