I have used this brand and product on all of my Chevy trucks. The fit is good, it is easy to install and I notice a performance improvement.

The design of this system is such for more air flow. When compared to factory design which pays attention to suppressing noise, some performance is always lost. This product does enhance the intake sound as well.

When driving in big cities, the overall savings in air filters is a no-brainer. I do 50k+ miles a year and clean the filters monthly. You can do that properly with a paper OEM style filter. A clean air filter improves performance, economy and longevity of the vehicle.

      Somewhat easy to install, needs better instructions (pictures aren't clear) looks very nice under the hood, haven't had it long enough to know if I got any gas mileage increase, seems to give the truck better response, gives it a nice deep sounds.

          helps the sound of the exhaust. Doesn't improve power and heat shield doesn't block out hot air from engine bay. basically just an amplifier for your exhaust.

            Kit has everything you need. It's well made, durable and very pleasing to the eye. It's too soon to tell on the performance. Takes about 30 minutes to install. It gets rid of that huge air box that GM uses.

                Comments about Spectre Air Intake Kit:

                Before I started installing the unit, I ran on cruise control for awhile to get a baseline MPG. After installing the unit I did the same thing. Looks like about a 1-1.5 mpg gain. Response and performance are clearly improved. My truck is an 04 Chevy 2500HD 4x4 crew cab with a 6.0l Vortec, so ANY mpg improvement is nice. You have to choose between the performance, or the gas mileage though. You can't have both at the same time.

                On a side note, I am running dual exhaust. I noticed that with the higher, cooler airflow, the temp seems to be running 5-10 degrees cooler.

                  Comments about Spectre Air Intake Kit:

                  Shipped very quick. I read over the installation guide and went to work. Probably took about an hour to install. Some of that was my fault trying to keep the original plate from under the OE Air Filter Box in place. I finally had to give up on that. I will probably fashion a plate to go in there. The open hole goes straight through to the ground and I know mud and water are going to be splashed up on the new filter. (It was there when I took out the existing filter). That is a design flaw that I believe should be corrected.
                  Other than that I am hopeful to see a mpg improvement down line.

                        is there a difference between the intake kits and the replacement K&N filters?

                          Intake kits includes the intake tube, filter and other accessories and it will provide you more horse power and miles per gallon when compared to the air filter. Intake kits will enhance the performance of the vehicle.

                          It depends. This is not a direct fit kit for your vehicle so some other parts may be needed
