Couldn't find anything about this using the search since the search function seems to think "KFX" and "CAI" aren't good enough words. Was browsing the aftermarket sites and saw that they have a new CAI. Anyone have it yet? Significantly cheaper than the turbo-kits one. (would probably be cheaper to buy the exhaust+CAI package though vs. buying this CAI and then TK's exhaust)

Yea I was contemplating buying this over TK but I went with TK cuz there more reliable. They have great customer service, shipping was next day! I wanted the cheaper one but found that this one was a half an inch THINNER in diameter (2.5" compared to 3" for the TK CAI) and liked the wider piping. These are also better made IMO, KFX seems to make them out of someones backyard and that's basically why there cheaper. So I went with the more expensive but I love it and do NOT regret my purchase AT ALL!

i have the Turbo kits one as well. also, the kfx one doesnt come with a ECU braket so you would have to make your own or keep the original airbox in. nor did they have any dyno results. i bought the eibach springs off their site and also the front strut bar as well and bill has been nothing but great to me so i say kfx customer service is up there with the best.

Thanks for the feedback. Always good to have forums you can get reliable info from instead of impulse buying =] Right now I'm torn between the CAI+exhaust kit from TK. or getting new rims+tires+lowering springs. WEHHHH

Personally, id rather have rims, tires, and lowering springs lol I'm saving for new rims and tires now but I have the eibachs in and the look is sooooo hot. And the ride is much more enjoyable. I put all 4 springs in myself and for the most part, it was easy. Took about 4hrs

Yeah I'm leaning towards the rims even though it'll be a couple hundred more. Looking at roughly $1000 overall. I have the money but I'm so hesitant to spend it, it's killing me haha.

I'm actually looking at the rims that SS has. This is the package I'm looking at. Factor in tax+shipping+springs it'll be over $1000. I really love these rims though. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/viewPackageWheelDetail.do;jsessionid=tQvhMXdVP3qhhvLbh72ntWpz3nSkwnWGxjKhBT6sVYVkZ2HvjN29lQSYLSvQ2ydP0MXQGVgspXbRkJmcLTyg1jnv26xJQmCwv0S1hnCGZR6WLnnTPVdYyhbFtr1nYpLQ!1880821143!971732097?yr=2010&pc=40217-61559&counter=0&type=w&rd=17&vid=016644
