The K&N 57-1542 FIPK air intake system replaces your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 57-1542 air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through an aerodynamically engineered intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The tube accomidates the factory air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The only tools needed are a screwdriver, a ratchet set and several wrenches. K&N 57 Series FIPK's are street legal in all 50 US states and come with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

The performance intake kit was received sooner than expected but was exactly as described. Although I expected a little more noise from my engine, I am happy with the performance and my gas mileage has increased four to five miles per gallon. Excellent unexpected result.

2006 300 C is the car I installed this on. So the guy at the parts store where I went to purchase my 10 mm open end wrench (you WILL need one, sockets and pliers and my assortment of other tools were no substitute) could not complain more about my choice in cold air intakes. He was regurgitating a recent trend in anti-K&N propaganda. It doesnt make more horsepower and It will ruin your car. What a total tool. LOL. This cai has been the best thing Ive done for my car in a long time. The sound is amazing. The fuel economy is obviously better after I installed it. Easily apparent is the increase in power. More torque, more hp. It's a no brainer. If you are on the fence about making this purchase, get off the fence, get off your butt, and get 'er done. The instructions on how this device operates could not be more clear. This is NOT an install and forget item. You MUST check it periodically to make sure its all right and tight. I feel the people who post negative remarks about this product are ignoring this basic fact. Make sure its tight, and your engine will run right. Peace.

I noticed a lot better throttle response immediately and more power.
