I like the looks of K&N's CAI, but I wish Volant and Green Filter offered systems so I could do some comparing. Are there other choices out there, or is K&N basically it?

This is a LOT like the old LT1 intake style on the f-bodies.......wonder when they will upgrade to something like the LS1 intake? and draw air from in front of the radiator?

Thanks for the help, guys! :D

Just ordered it. I liked the K&N, but it just didn't look right with the K&N logo that they're too proud of, imo.
AWESOME. You're going to love it. Take your time on the install and it'll turn out awesome. There are some picts in my gallery if you'd like to see.

Enjoy :cheers

Thanks. Don't know if I can wait until the 29th! I looked at your photos. That's a good lookin' install and a really good lookin' CAI, isn't it? ;)

Dang, I wish I saw the LPE prior to ordering my K&N.......I was not impressed with the underhood sealing the K&N had. There are lots of openings to pull underhood heat into the filter. The LPE looks like a much better open.

hence why most members went with it. :)

We should start a sticky called "1st mods for the goat" so people know what is worth spending their money on.

From what I'm told, Lingenfelter is about the best choice. Mine should get here on the 29th or before.

I installed a K&N on my Mustang a few years back. Although it provided a noticable amount of more horsepower, I don't think the computer was able to compensate properly for it. The engine became jerky and ran rough. Also, I started having problems with my idle air valve.

I think the LPE is the way to go as it looks like a good fit. Has anyone had any similar experiences with the computer not adjusting to the additional cold air properly?

Also, stupid question, but an air filter did not void the ford warranty, I assume a LPE does not affect GM's warranty either, correct?
