I finally installed the K&N CAI I bought some weeks ago and here are my impressions:
- if you install it as it came in the box, it is soo loud (WOT or not) that I can't bear (42 y.o. here).
- if you do the two mods that TboneZX3 has done (see here
), the CAI becomes acceptable, there is almost no resonance and we can say the sound is not that of a factor if not at WOT. In fact, at 50% of throtle, the car is doing just fine.
- the car sometimes sounds great under light throtle (a little different in growl) but sometimes, at the same throtle, there is a different sound.
I'll try and post some videos with it on traffic. I am still undecided about it. It IS LOUD when at WOT and this is something I have to deal with it. I give it another 3-4 days of test and if I decide not to keep it, it will be on the site for sale.
