Default MAMA WHAT A JUNE BUG!!!!!

I just put on my CAI with K&N and if you don't have one, I'm here to tell you , YOU NEED ONE! Throttle response is so much better at all ranges and sounds awesome to. The best money I've spent in awhile. (less then $40 on ebay)

I got my cold air intake and cone filter off ebay. I guess it'* not a true cold air. What people on here call a rice pipe. No heat sheild yet but, it'* coming soon. I got the pipe and 3" cone filter for $39 including shipping off ebay.

Thats not a K&N filter that comes with that and you need an AirBox to actually make the HP! I have one and it does not make a big differance, unless you put a real k&N closed end filter and make an Air BOX and force some air in!... a heat shield helps also....then you get your gains! Trust me I've had one for over a year from the same guy!

Yup a box around the filter will help keep the heat away.

Do you like the growl it makes?

This maybe true but, are you telling me you didn't notice any differance? It may not be the ultra performance upgrade but, I noticed a big change in torque. I haven't taken it out on the interstate yet but, a few laps around the neighborhood. I'm impressed with the differance. A 35' patch of rubber leaving the diveway told me this was a good improvment. I'm not done yet. The air box is in the works.
