How does this one stack up to the K&N CAI? Seems like for $40 more dollars and an estimated 26 more hp rather than 17 I would go with the K&N. Just curious.

I haven't seen real K&N dyno figures. They say up to 25 more HP, but do not even guess at torque. I know that dyno figures really do'nt mean that much anyway, but I like the increase in torque and HP that the New Era showed over the stock goat. I'll let you know what I think when I get it. It should arrive Thursday or Friday.

I got mine yesterday 3 days after ordering. The weather is terrible today, but I braved it and installed the CAI in 30 mins with only a screewdriver. I put the unit on my M6 to compare it with the K&N CAI. I can't tell a difference. The car has the same grunt as with the K&N. There may be a difference in torque though. I seem to be hazing the tires shifting into 2nd without trying to. There is a little more flex in the New Era CAI than I like, so I may make a bracket for some rigidity. All in all I think it is a good buy for the money and I would do it again.

yea , i just realized how dumb it was to have it installed hen it arrived and decided to do it myself earlier today, took me about 45 minutes. Not too much, work, and i had the extra time on hand so i figured id save some $$$$.

I can really feel the difference with the New Era Intake , not to mention I have never seen an intake system made with such high quality components , best $199 I ever spent !!!!
