[QUOTE=craigsfocus;4171372]Honestly, I couldn't tell you. I have a SE so it didn't come with the engine cover. But the intake doesn't appear that you would have a hard time putting the engine cover back on. I don't know anyone in the Austin area that has a Titanium to try it on either.

Thanks for this ^^

Hopefully Troy knows the answer or a Ti owner.

Does this intake have a CARB sticker?

Nope. Its not legal for road use in Cali or states that have adopted Cali's emission standards.

Now, back to the thread subject: I like more and more the K&N intake. Hmmm... I have to be cautious, because I might end up buying one.
I just drove from Philly all the way down to DC and back with mine...LOVE IT. My gas mileage increased from 36 to around 38, I was even getting 42 at one point. The sound it GREAT. Just an excellent system.

craigsfocus have you noticed that the hood holder upper thing doesn't stay latched into its little yellow socket. Seems the black sealer on the top of the intake prevents it from sitting properly.

Is this a problem for you? I may end up trimming the sealer in that spot.

I saw that the hood prop rod does sit on the seal of the intake. But I am still able to latch my prop rod like its suppose to. Maybe check to make sure your seal is seated all the way?

Can those with the intake installed confirm that it is sealing well against the hood? Can you see impressions in the hood insulation?
