Heres the pics. Please excuse the dirty engine. It comes with two pipes for the filter, one for inside the engine bay they call "short ram air," and a longer "cold air" pipe that goes down in through the fender well. This is the piece I used. I need to order the hydro shield pre filter for it now. The intake makes a very cool sucking sound when the transmission up shifts, almost sounds like a turbo blow off valve.

thanks, looks like it went on pretty easy, huh?

just remove all the stock intake hoses, mass air flow sensor and air cleaner, resonator, remove the right headlight for access, assemble all the new parts and 'VOILA', your done, RIGHT?

can you notice any difference in the way it runs other than the sound?

It was very easy to install, it took less than 30 minutes. It will probably take longer if you haven't already removed the resonator bellows. As far as performance gains, it pulls extremely hard now at WOT. I'll beat on it a little this weekend and see how much of a gain there really is.

Injen sells the hydro shield, it's the same thing as a K&N DryCharger prefilter. And yes, you will have to take the light out, or remove the front bumper cover, to clean it if you put the filter in the fender well. The light only take a few minutes to remove so it's the fastest and easiest.

You are most likely experiencing better throttle response. The HP gain will not be too much.
