Help me out with understanding the 2009 PZEV

Where to start?

1) Are all the PZEV intake filters configured the same way?
2) Like someone else pointed out, K&N markets a CAI kit for 08-09 PZEV, has anyone tried it? Is it still the only one offered?
3) Does the product from Stealth fit the 09 PEZV? Has anyone tried it?
4) What is the “FS ones”? (see quote below)

And last but not least, the big question for me is would I seen gains in power and gas mileage in a daily driver that is really a commuter car? I drive about 50 miles a day in mixed freeway and city streets. I drive them as fast as possible, but the Lord only knows it isn’t as fast as I would like. So I was wondering if anyone had any idea where the threshold of practicality if with the up grades like CAI is?

I don't think the Typhoon will pas smog, but it apparently fits the PEZV intake.

1: The PZEV filter systems in the 08's and up are just like the ones from the 04's to my knowledge.
2: The CAI will work for your PZEV as long as it has provisions for the air pump to the exhaust manifold.
3: From stealth? You mean the stealth CAI? Its purely a cone filter on the bottom of your stock MAF tube.
4: FS = Focussport.

And you will see gains in HP from a CAI for sure. If you keep your foot way outta it, some MPG as well.

http://www.ineedawebsite.com/Blazing...lth%20CAI.html. This is for a 2005 ZX3, but it is a CAI. Perhaps the CAI principle is applicable to a short ram?

That is for any year or model Duratec, the author just had an 05 ZX3.

It is called a CAI but it doesn't really matter. Both a CAI and an SRI are intakes. the only difference is length and filter location, so I don't see what you mean by principles applying from one to the other.

It should sit right behind the driver's side headlight. If someone can find the "how-to" thread on this that would be greatly appreciated.

Okay I really like the "stealth" airbox idea, however, that writeup says nothing about removing the stock air filter, so wouldn't that just make it have two air filters?

no you remove the lower part of the stock setup and attach a cone filter the the lower end of the MAF tube.

hey im not sure if i can ask this here. but im sure i can, hope its ok.

Im looking into buying a cai.
Right now im going with either a 63 Series AirCharger Intake Kit from K&N or a FSWERKS 2.3L Cool-Flo Race Air Intake System.

Which one do you guys recommend?

How was the installation experience for those who have one of these?

Thank You
