thanks. after driving some more today the weird noises stopped. my friend who installed it said that it could have been the computer learning the new airflow. Anyhow, no more weird noises... just pure roar!
if I could describe the increase in "loudness", i would say something around 1.5x-2x as loud as stock... 8)

After installing yesterday, just checked under the hood today and the CAI is sitting nice and snug, nothing loose. There is already a bit of discoloration on the blue filter (brownish) but that is probably just the dirt it's filtering. Fortunately this filter can be cleaned with water.
It made my car so much louder... it's like a lion's roar when I accelerate .
I've noticed my speed/anticipation ratings have gone down since I put the CAI in, but haven't tracked actual avg mpg yet. I will on next fill up and let ya'll know.

Thanks again to Gandalfthegreyfocus and her bf for helping me! I could never had don it without you! (seriously)

hello.
time to clean the air intake!
I picked up the K/N cleaning/lube kit. The oil is red ... the steeda filter comes blue but it doesn't matter performance-wise right?
Also does anyone have any tips? how long do i need to dry the filter?
I just wash of the filter and follow directions I guess?

thanks

Be careful not to damage the gauze. Let it dry until it's dry. Don't over oil it. Some people swap in their stock filter for a day while the other is being serviced.

I really liked my K&N CAI, great sound, noticeable throttle response improvement. Sadly, though, I just sold the car...

I ended up having a really rough idle after oiling the filter and putting it back in. I did let it dry for over 24 hrs.
Anyways the solution was some MAF sensor housing cleaner.
