Ya, they will still ask with out looking at this thread, that is exactly my point. This is all great information for sure but the point is that they will look first, but even if they don't it will be fine because it causes great debates on the forum regarding induction and intake. It just opens a box for people to get flamed because they don't search/look first. Thats all I'm saying.

i got a custom intake that out performed my k&n cai.
off the top of the dome. i think it cost me $55.00 for just the pipe and connecters.
not counting the filter b/c i used the k&n off of the cai.
short-ram cold air (SRCA intake)
no hydro locking -------- way up off the ground
no 90' angles from a cai --------- strate stream of cold air
no maf restrictions ----------- able to mount upgraded maf

ill post pics tomorrow

I just browsed thru it...its a decent write up for sure!

Looking at it makes me wish i would've gone with the F2 CAI instead of the K&N FIPK kit for sure...its a helluva lot cheaper!!

Damn K&N branding

the point of this thread, Guy, is to give us something to link the newbz to when they ask an obvious question. I'm tired of rewriting the same thing so I decided to write it all up and I stickied it in the sticky thread along with all the others I wrote in the group. And, if anyone did search, then this would come up.

Plus, we can just link this thread when someone asks, and it's case closed.

K&N typhoon for the 08-09's says it is for the PZEV models. has any one actually Put it on Their PZEV focus. How well does it work. Oh and it kinda looks like a SRI and not a CAI, Just an observation.
