And when you get on it it becomes one of the most annoying sounds ever and even at light throttle inputs it sounds like a "ricer" coming. I took mine off and even my wife's sedate driving and light throttle encouraged the intake to give off the "ricer" call.
Yes,it's an age thing and if your car is going to make loud noises maybe it should have some HP to back it up. You don't see guys in Porches and Vettes taking their intake covers off to make more noise.

|Blake_ou7||The intake sound doesnt make the car stupid loud. Its just i little rumble that it gives and its only when you get on it. besides that you never really hear it|

I'm a leave the cover on the intake and if it's hotter when it's uncovered then it's simply a noise mod and nobody needs to hear an intake 2 miles away since I don't no anybody who's impressed with that.
Filtering job is still better with an OEM filter since there's a reason you make a bump in power with the K&N and the reason it flows better is it does have a slight compromise toward filtering.
With that said I still might do the K&N eventually since I like the re-useability.

I plan to paint my brake calipers and may do some other cosmetic changes but nothing significant.

|Tigeo||Still not my thing...I like minor mods but tend to keep things as close to stock as possible. I agree that at highway speeds, the temps will be close with all of that air moving through the engine compartment! I could see taking off the snorkel...|

|Blake_ou7||yeah i understand.But i did a check on how it would change the temp. i have a scanner that i can look at live data and yes its warmer when you are sitting at a light but when u are moving the temp is only 2 degrees hotter than with the cover on. and no matter what that k&n fliter is a great filter and will stop anything|

|Tigeo||Cover on - doesn't seem like a good idea to leave it off. Hot air, more dirt. I mainly did it for the lifetime service life and a little better breathing (I realize this is minimal).|

|Blake_ou7||Did you leave the cover off or did you put the cover back on?|
|04-22-2013 09:55 PM|
|Tigeo||Ok, dropped it in tonight. Seems a bit louder (but could be placebo). If anything, at least I never have to buy another air filter again!|

|Blake_ou7||If you looking for a sound change,you can leave off the cover on top and you dont have to worrie about the filter falling out. But it give the car a really great sound!!|
