It's normally $349 so for $100 IMO you can't go wrong and if you don't like it you can go back to stock and sell it for what you paid.

CAI, yes
Oil saturated filter, NO!
Not on this vehicle.
It is not recommended.
YMMV, but don't say we didn't warn you.

The factory box pulls air from the fender....that thing is sucking rising heat off the engine.

good price, but it's noisy. performance is kind of drowned out (or enhanced) by the noise, depends on your take. the heat shield helps to insulate hot air from the engine. fit is good and well engineered. as everyone says, careful with over oiling. i've had one for 70k+ miles with no issues and cleaned 2x over that span. definitely some strong opinions here about CAIs. have fun with it.

If your profile is right and you have a 2017, that wont fit your engine since its for the 2015-2016 LFX engines

IMO adding CAI on our trucks is all smoke and mirrors. The engine sings louder and sounds more “aggressive” when you step on it, but there is no real HP gain........ Plus on the K&N you will lose the engine cover.........

That can't be for an LGZ, the pipe angles are all wrong

Engine oil testing has proven that these allow a lot of dirt into the engine and silicon levels will go up. Nothing like sand blasting your engine internally. Not to mention the oil saturation of the filter can contaminate the MAP sensor too.

And if it coats the MAF, the truck will not start. I’ve been victim to this in college with my old mustang. Gotta clean it off carefully with a spray cleaner and Q tips. That’s why I went with a dry filter for my truck. See signature.

Don't run K&N cold air intakes any more but did for years. Its no big deal if you re-oil the filter and it fouls the maf simply get some maf cleaner and spray the hell out of it (don't touch maf and it evaporates quick like alcohol) and all's well again.

Yeah no big deal if you remember to keep a can of that under the seat.....and some tools to get to the MAF. Otherwise you might be leaving work and your car won’t start lol!
