K&N cai. Anyone feel, or see a difference?

Ive had my 04 barbados blue M6 GTO for 7 months now, and Ive got the bug. The first mod reccomended to me was the K&N CAI kit. Does anyone out there already have this mod, and did it make a difference in seat of the pants o' mometer?

I have spoken with many people who have purchased the LS1speed, K&N, and New Era, and out of all of these I've heard that the New Era is the best (and not because I'm a stocking dealer).... plus the New Era is cheaper than most @ 199.95 ! Let me know....

K&N CAI - thumbs up

I installed mine last weekend and have driven through 1.5 tanks of gas since the mod. It feels like there was a subtle improvement to performance. Based on the MPG calculator, there is a significant increase in fuel economy, about 2 miles per gal. The install went smooth, the instructions couldn't be better and it looks great under the hood. I am glad I purchased.

Cool... sounds good man, thanx for the tip. one more thing; how long did you wait on the part, and did you buy direct from an auto parts store, an outlet like summit or from the K&N Site?

K&N CAI

I bought it on e-bay, it took one week to ship. I think it was out of Florida, but can't be sure.

What about going to Holden and get mods from them? Do they now use the new LS2 down under?

www.neweraperformanceparts.com is the site for the New Era intake and the K&N CAI. I bought my K&N from O'reilly's Auto Part Store here in TX for $255. Right now, the K&N is listed on the new era site for $229.95 + shipping. In previos posts by other's, people like the new era intake except for the fact that it didn't have a support system close to the filter which bothered some to custom make something to help support the weight near the filter and it doesn't come with a heat shield. I recommend the K&N and I'm only stating problems with the new era based on what others have said and not personnal experiences--overall the new era had positive reviews. The actual K&N heatshield is different then the pic that is posted on that site--it fits nice and I beleive that it works as intended.
