lThis is my 2nd Air intake kit install. I did have to modify two brackets to complete the install of the heat shield on my 2013 Tundra 5.7 liter...to be expected. Out standing improvement in the sound of the engine as well as the great increase in power. Also: when I am not "on it"...better gas milage!
Good Looking - Great Sound
I drive a 2010 Ford F-150 XLT, 4.6, 3V that I purchased in May 2010. I have 5800 miles on it as of today, so you can see I don't drive too many highway miles. I mention this only because when my stock air intake was installed on my truck, my mpg was averaging 15.8 to 16.3 mpg according to my on-board computer. For the past year my mpg never varied from those numbers. After following the instructions in detail and installing the K&N Air Intake, I immediately noticed that my on-board computer indicated I was averaging 12 to 13 mpg. I'm not looking for an increase in mpg with the K&N Air Intake, I just don't want a 3 or 4 mpg decrease. I spoke with a K&N rep and he suggested that I run a tank or two of gas through the engine to see if the on-board computer adjusts to the volume of air and if it doesn't to return the air intake for a refund if so desired. Lastly, the K&N was easy to install and it looks good and it sounds even better.
