I was on the fence about buying or waiting for a K&N to fix the kit. This helped make my decision. It's ridiculous that you either under tighten and the filter falls off or you over tighten it and the housing gets bent and needs to be replaced. I am so surprised there is issues like this with a K&N product as they have been so above par in the past, in my experience. I guess I'll just have to be patient. I'm am anxious for that beautiful engine growl!
