K&N install

I have to say I absolutely love it. I do notice a bit of throttle response and the sound when I punch it is amazing. Now I cant wait to get some new exhaust.

Does your engine cover rub the intake too?

Yeah, it sits right on top of it. Its not to bad, so I figured I wouldn't try and fix it.

I've got a K&N as well, one of the first ones for the Camaro. Doesn't seem to get much love on here for some reason... But I love it! Enjoy yours!

I really like the price too. Saves me money to get some new exhaust. I can't decide which one I want though.

I havent. But for what I have seen they sound amazing. Thirdgenbum told me about them. I think he has used them for his thirdgen in the past.

you do not need a tune for it, it makes your exhaust sound louder, it gets rid of the low rpm lag, gains a little bit of horsepower, and you can definitely feel it when you tap on your pedal
