Air Filter Replacement

You may want to buy a better filter. Measure for correct size first. Also, you can bend the existing bracket to hold the system in place.
I think a $50 K&N should get you there.
No offence to anyone, just my opinion and experience.
I have an 06 and am looking to do something similar.
I have 98.5k on it and do 100 mi/day for work, 80% highway driving.
I am starting to notice less pickup when getting on the highway and a noticable roar from the air intake.
I was under the car Sunday to rotate the tires and was looking at the air box, is it possible to remove both boxes (engine compartment and fender) and install the Spectre or K&N filter directly where the inside box gets removed??
The car has been so reliable I have not messed with it much, but now want to do a few tweaks. The air box has a broken mount from a deer running into the fender last month so doing a replacement will eliminate that from rattling.

I am sure cleaning the maf sensor will help some also.

Where did you pick up the filter kit? A quick look online for the local places found the filter but without any adapters?
