    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.

      Comments about Spectre Performance Polished Aluminum V8 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.

                    Performance intakes can't get any better for the price, and this is exactly what my '03 Yukon XL needed to help give it some new life!
                    Installation is stupid-simple. I'm not much of an "under the hood" guy, and I had everything put together within a couple hours. The only thing that really took any effort was fitting the rubber seal onto the adapter. (It required some "delicate" persuasion techniques.)
                    I've had it on for about 1,000 miles so far with a noticeable difference in power and a bit of a boost to fuel economy.
                    Other benefits:
                    1. Aesthetically pleasing.
                    2. Adds a satisfying growl to your engine.

                      I had never heard of Spectre and this was my first purchase of a product from their company and i will say that the quality of parts is great. The intake kit was incredibly easy to use, fit perfectly and significantly imporved HP and MPG. After 2-3 fillups at the pump i averaged an increase of 1.5mpg under normal driving conditions to inclued highway and city traffic. I also had it dyno'd to see the hard # results and 11hp increase between the 3000-5500rpm range.I coupled this CAI kit with flowmaster exhaust on my 04 Tahoe and it provides a punch when you press down on the throttle.

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

                            This part is universal and not a direct fit some modifications may be required for proper installation.

                            The instructions are fairly easy to understand. Myself and a friend installed this kit in 45 minutes, and we were not in a hurry at all.
                            A thin oil such as WD-40 will ease the install by allowing the flexible joints to slide until it is time to tighten everything.

                            It is actually really easy to install. Only simple tools are usually needed to install a kit like this.
