Noise is very minimal with the excpetion on a sucking sound at idle and a nice growl at WOT (Not ricey at all). Regualr driving doesnt seem any louder than before. Thanks for the write up!

cant figure out how to post pics, but heres a link with some photos from the install
Mine is very noticeable at idle (actually thought something was wrong), guess it shows how air hungry these little engines are. The Spectre flows just as good as the K&N it's just made overseas. I went with the K&N RC-9160 ($34 shipped on Ebay) which is slightly larger than 3" opening.
