K&N Air Charger Install.

Had a good friend come over to help me with my K&N Air Charger installation.

Here's a few pics. Hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed putting it in the GTO.













Took him all of 1 hour & 10 mins. of that was looking for a dropped screw.

Really very happy with the whole thing. From the make/materials of the K&N to the ease of install (well for my friend anyways ) & the added performance.

I'd say a must do mod for anyone looking for some more HP out of the LS1.

There is a definititive growl coming from under my hood now.

They did a great job on tuning the GTO's exhaust sound but this puts the whole car in stereo now!

Amazing how the sound of a car can make it that much better. Everything seems to come to life especially when you mash that pedal.

Don't believe it voids the warrantee.

Where did you purchase it and for how much?

I bought it from Cardomain.com. It was $255 shipped.

Here's the link.

I've heard varying stories about the warranty. Some say yes some say no. I think that if they can prove any part failed becuase of the K&N Filter then you could be SOL.

Emissions?

I was interested in getting one of these also, but, after reading KN's website, I am not so sure. If you are unsure, I would go to their website and read the product info and FAQs.

Any problems with any sensors showing a "check engine"?? Did the same thing to my Av and caused the "check engine" light to come on, the Diablo Preditor programmer took care of it.

haven't gotten a light on this GTO. Didn't get lights from K&N CAI on my '94Z28, or 02SS with K&N Filter, MTI lid, and FRAM - free ram air mod, as it's called. Fbodys can dremel out most of the bottom of air box and see a gain.
