Very nice addition to the car. Noticable gains in acceleration and good sound to the engine. AutoAnything came through with the best price and had it delivered on time as scheduled. K & N instructions were clear and easy to follow. Took less than 90 minutes. Fit and finish were first rate. I reccomend AutoAnything and also K & N products.

A well-made product that is significantly less restrictive than the stock air intake. Installation wasn't difficult, but did require working in tight areas. In addition, the aFe intake did not incorporate the harness retainers that are built into the factory intake.
