ok, got it put in.....place is only like 5 mins from my house, so couldnt really "test" it, seems smoother, actually more quiet, except for giving it a little extra gas, the guy that put it in said he liked the way it sounded........i'll test it out tomorrow when i go to work

for those that have the K&N AirCharger High-Flow Intake/Cold Air Intake installed, does your temp gauge hang around a hair below half, seems like it registers a tad higher (today anyway) then when i didnt have the k & n in the compass

can't say I've noticed any change since k&n install: my temp indicator seems to vary from 1/3 up to just under 1/2 depending on driving conditions- cruise vs idle, hills etc. Give it a couple of hundred miles. I think the computer may " learn "the difference in air flow (?). Have you noticed any difference in pick-up and/or throttle response?

I do think it runs hotter than it did without it. Before you mentioned it, I have realized that it is right under half most of the time.

Echo and I did notice a difference in pick-up and/or throttle response. This is your first weekend with it. Maybe you'll notice it on your way to the beach.

in one of the other posts, someone with the magnaflow exhaust system said that he/she didnt think there was any performance improvement? is it possible? also, since i already have the k&n air intake kit installed, if i were to get the magnaflow installed too, how much of a performance upgrade would there be? any ideas?

I have a K&N system on its way.

Anyone interested in pictures of the install? I can take pictures and write down some feelings after I install it.

Pics are always a help! Nothing like first hand info on this stuff.

How much improvement is this, compared to just switching the OEM filter to a K&N high flow filter in the stock intake?

It just seems pretty costly if you can get an improvement with the filter-only change..

I can find no charts/specs on the stock replacement http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?Prod=33-2362

This system that this thread has focused on is almost an 8HP gain. http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?Prod=33-2362

i have the air intake in my compass, do notice some gain in hp (not enough to give you wiplash or anything like that) but it does "shift"a lot smoother from 0-40, seems to get up to 40mph faster then when i didnt have the k & n

I was just looking at these today, I'm weary of modding my compass like I did my Audi. I may end up catching the bug and go mod crazy.

Should get the intake tomorrow, probably install on Saturday. Will take before, during, after pictures.

Intake was delivered today, a day early from UPS. Ordered it from AutoAnything.com. Good communication from them and UPS delivered a day ahead of schedule.

Curiosity got the best of me, so I went ahead and installed it. Instructions suck in my opinion, leaving you guessing on some stuff. I could have installed without the instructions (mechanic background) but I used them to see how K&N did with them. Pretty good walkthrough but leaves you guessing on some parts.

Overall happy with fit and quality. Definetly sounds different when you put your foot down. Throttle response seems better so far. I can feel a touch more power in the higher RPM's. Good deal, I'm pleased.

I did reset the PCM by pulling the negative battery cable about an hour before install, and the install itself took about an hour and a half with most of it spent getting the damn grommet and air temp sensor in the new intake tube, lol.

I have plenty of pictures from before, during, and after as promised, will post them up probaby tomorrow or over the weekend after I sort through to get the best pictures.

I put mine in a couple of months ago and your absolutely correct. The sensor was the worst part. It took me longest out of everything but a blister or two later, it was in and the install was done.
