I originally was looking at K&N and happened to find Autoanything during my search. I have seen the K&N up close before and I can't see any difference from that and the Spectre. It fit perfect per the directions. The only modification I had to make since I put on a throttle body spacer at the same time was I had to cut notches into the 90 that attached to the throttle body. It was a tight fit against the fan housing but I was able to get it to work with minimal effort. Would have fit easily without the spacer and the air box and mounts where right on. Pick up seems better and seems to accelerate quicker and smoother. I'll really find out once I tow something. Sound god too when you put your foot into it but I did do a double upgrade all at once. Couldn't speak to the milage improvement since I don't use my Tahoe much.
