Yes. They do recommend disconnecting the battery during installation which does cause the computer to reset. Half an hour should do it.

I've got the K&N Cold Air installed. I noticed a difference, but it wasn't until i installed a Magnaflow Cat Back system that it made a true difference.

Anyone know if this will work for the 2.0L engine?

Edit:
Poked around this morning and they do make the 2.0L 57 series FIPK, but not the 63 series AirCharger.

When installing an open airfilter, you should always run an cold air feed pipe to the filter. Best place is at the foglight, but, if you go through mud and water, you won't be driving that far. You could. Put a pipe in behind the wheel arches, should stay clean over there, but give enough cold air

Since it's directing outside air to the old filter box that you are replacing it's only purpose would be to direct outside air to your engine compartment. It does get VERY hot in there but whether or not it helps to cool it down, I don't know.

It's purpose is air flow to the filter which you are removing. Any side benefit of cooling the engine compartment by it not being connected to the air filter box is your call. Mine is as delivered from the factory. At this point YOU are R&D.
