I bought this K&N cold air intake to liven up and improve the gas mileage on my 2002 Chevy S10 with the 4.3 V6. It gave my truck much better throttle response and improved my gas mileage by about 1.5 miles per gallon. The product was very easy to install and I would buy another one for a future vehicle.
S-10 AIR INTAKE WITH AIRBOX Part # 15643
The S-10 "Air Intake Kit with Enclosed Air Box" is not an accurate description of the product. It is actually just an air box replacement for the stock OEM airbox that attaches to the stock air intake duct from Mass Air Flow Sensor to Throttlebody. The description below is flawed in that no "Volant Air Duct" is included except for a 3 1/2 inch sleeve of rubber/silicon that joints the Volant air box replacement to the Mass Air Flow sensor. "Volant Air Duct: Factory air inlet ducts use sound baffles and awkward bends which restrict flow. Our Cross-Link polyethylene air ducts are sculptured to give the engine less restrictive breathing. Incorporating larger diameters and unique bends, that can't be duplicated with metal ducts, allow for maximum airflow velocity and throttle response." While Auto Anything customer service was helpful the bottom line is that the advertisement is misleading and the higher than $200 price for just an airbox should make you do some additional research before purchasing this product.

I long debated if i should install 1 of these. But my 2000 S10 2.2L automatic was so slow if I ran the 1/4 mile I'd have to clock it with calender! I installed the K&N cold air intake along with a Magnaflow catback exhaust (both from Autoanything) and the results were almost instant! I now have better response from red light and more "oomph" on the expressway. It's not neck snapping performance,but it is noticeable. Mpg is also up by 1 1/2 miles. All in all, money well spent.
