K&N 63 Series vs 77 Series
 
I was just looking around and pretty much every website advertises that the K&N 63 series will only fit up to 2009. Is there any reason why it wouldn't fit on a 2010+?

If I was getting a CAI I'd imagine I'd rather have the plastic option compared to a metal one that would soak up heat..

Also watching for an answer, Seagull....but I have another related question : why would 15 states declare the 77 series not street legal??

Your stock airbox is a CAI,both of those you listed are not and will draw heated air from under the hood while the stock box draws cool air from the grill/hood area.


Also a good paper filter is much better then the K&N for a daily driver.If racing then yes you will benifit froma K&N but on a daily driver will only cause issues in 30-60k miles with all the extra dirt it's allowing into the engine.

what he said
save the money you'd waste on a K&N and get some real toys

If you want the effect of allowing dirtier air into the engine, and make the 2hp increase you get, save the money and take out your air filter completely. Not a lot different despite what K&N claims, which is put out by marketing teams. Take a google at splitfire spark plugs and the legal ills they faced. Don't believe the hype.

Absolutely as stated above. Oiled filters are a gimmick that allows a grimy build up inside the intake and on sensors. Take a good look at how the air flows through your factory air box and you will see its cold air intake.

What can help a bit, though, is to completely cover the air box and air tube with foil backed bubble wrap insulation to keep the intake temp as low as possible.
