    Default K&N Air Intake System

    Has anyone tried this system? If so how difficult or not was it to install? Any noticeable gains? Was thinking of adding the K&N intake along with a Borla muffler-tip combo. ANy thoughts or experiences out there?

    I have seen people move up to a K&N intake system, seems to get a bit more performance, etc. Not sure what it does to the gas mileage though.

    I am buying a K&N intake next week, and will put it on as soon as it is shipped to me. I will let you know, However, instead of Borla I already have a JBA system on.

    Ok, so I added the K&N intake and I already had the JBA exhaust system on my TB. I love it. First off, yes the sound is very loud. When the intake is not making noise the exhaust is. I do notice a little more ump when driving and going of the start. Gas, I havn't been able to see it yet. I just put the intake on on Monday. But I will say I do love it.

    The borla exhaust is about $1000 new, and the K&N intake is about $300. There are a JBA, Borlan, and Bassani exhaust systems for the TB 4.2L and about 5 different intakes. 3 K&N, 1 Airaid, 1 Volant, 1 Rock It dual, and a few others. Each have their benefits and disadvantages.

    I have the JBA exhaust system and mine costs 350.00 also, I put on the K&N air intake and if you go to www.truckperformance.com they are on sale for 200.00 or they were when I bought mine, and they also give you free shipping. I bought my JBA through them too.

    Good stuff. Will any of this void the warranty?
