I recently purchased and installed a K&N cold air intake system on my 2004 PT Cruiser. First the bad news: The installation was harder than it looked like it would be, and heaven help you if you ever blow a fuse (the heat shield sits squarely on the top of the fuse box, obliging you to dismantle the entire system to get at fuses). The good news: Definitely more power, noticeable on long hills and in hard acceleration. Icing on the cake: I run a DynoMax muffler, which has a rich, mellow sound (unlike those coffee can rigs kids use which make their Hondas sound like overgrown leaf blowers). There was the most pleasant surprise with the K&N. Open up the throttle and the sound is deliciously booming - sounds more like a big V6 than a little 4-banger.
