Looks good, people will give you crap about it being a K&N intake, but your truck is a good looking truck, notice a change in performance? so K&N makes their intakes different now? werent they black before? kinda looks like an Injen intake, :waytogo::waytogo:
Definitely noticed an increase in HP in my "test drive" after the install. Sounds pretty burly too. I'm happy.
As for the look, We have an FJ cruiser i just installed an Airraid intake on and that's all just a flat black shield and cone so i'm not sure. A buddy of mine installed one on his older Eclipse and it looks similar to mine now so i'm not sure.
I purchased the K&N air charger cold air intake which is the black plastic intake. It actually outflows the aluminum intake and produces 2 more horsepower. Right now there are 3 intakes for the 2005 2.7 liter. 2 from K&N and 1 from AFE which is also a nice enclosed unit similar to Volant.
I got the k&n cold air 77 series intake. I guess the 63 series is illegal here in cali? (that's what it said on their website) So I just settled for that. I like it but us 4 banger guys do have ugly engines. Oh well, you don't have to look at it when the hood is shut. Thanks guys!
