K&N Typhoon air intake

I was wondering if you can feel a power difference or any other differences after installing the K&N intake. I'm having it installed tomorrow just wondering if there's a difference.

I thought I felt a little difference, but it may have been my imagination lol But with the Typhoon, you will definitely hear it.

ya the thing about CAIs. is they work really good with other mods and a tune. i would still get one even if i wasn't getting a tune. because it sounds great and will add power. better that then nothing. but i wont expect a whole different car or something lol

I am planning on ordering the Typhoon as well. What type of difference does it make to the sound? Just a deeper tone? I had the Airaid on my 2lt/rs and wanted to go with K&N this time around.

LOL! I don't have a sister...and I'm not your "son". If so I'd break your hip for bringing home a v6 camaro with a mustang technologies exhaust on it.

All the companies lie about the results pretty much lol It has been dynoed and gives about 10 hp more. There is a thread somewhere on here with all the CAI dyno numbers. I got the Typhoon because it was polished.

Im loving the v1 especially when i turn it on. It sounds like a mean mama jama if u know what i mean. The K&N rumble i used to hear is now replaced by the exhaust sound but when i accelerate it sounds deep and throaty and im sure its because of that combo.

I got the intake and MRT's @ ************.com. Awesome site and offer discounts too.

It seems K&N provided that info from a highly modified camaro..

A CAI on a camaro with headers, exhaust, and a tune would be very lucky to pull 10-12. If the CAI is stand alone, I would be hard pressed to say it pulls 6-7 hp.

like MikeSS said, it is a mod that comes alive with OTHER mods.

I just looked up the K&N Typhoon on their website and found that the "69-4520TP" is not street legal in the following states:

Arizona, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington

What the hell is that about? http://store.knfilters.com/search/legal_all_states.htm
