The rubber they give you to place around the box to seal it to the hood is longer then what is needed there for you have to trim it.

See the trim on the top and sides of the box here

The rubber was slightly too long and I found it easier to trim it than to try and wedge it over the smaller rubber on the side. Seals perfectly to the hood though.

Here's what it looks like with the engine cover on. Really looks good under the hood.

Like I said earlier there are differences between them, with some advantages going to steeda. There's no winner in every aspect. Someone asked a question and they're entitled to information. If you disagree with the spread of free information for potential consumers maybe you should find somewhere else to peddle your goods. aren't you the one who tests items for them? That hardly puts you in a position to be impartial.

Hell, I don't have the k&n or any intake now and am in the research stage., Im not saying price is everything.
I'm still actively looking into the steeda.

You're a mod aren't you? For shame....
Finally, being a sponsor doesn't entitle you to be free of criticism. Nothing I said was false.
Bottom line, no one can possible know of every retailer (B&M and online) that sells these products and could possibly know every price (and discounted prices) out there.

I'm comparing apples to apples, you are comparing apples to oranges.

If you want to compare a retailer's limited-time/customer discount to manufacturer's regular prices and call it apples to apples, be my guest.

Shoot me a PM, I've already helped out quite a few members on here with pricing. ;)
