K&N is king. Most auto stores probably won't stock the size filter you need. Go to a performance shop and they can order one up for you.

Autozone usually stocks a couple cones. That'* where DrJay got his. Take your pipe in with you.

Brandon, go buy Chilton'* #28200. You won't have any problems. Buy the thermostat at an auto parts store. That'* usually your best bet Just ask for a 180 that will fit in the OEM 195 application. If they don't understand, go to another store.

You'll need that book to do the swap, or you'll have to hook up with driverjohn2005 in Bonney Lake.

Even if it is a little hard for you, you will be REALLY pleased with the results of the CAI.
