yep i got one of those too... 40 bucks on ebay. cant go wrong... tho some people say that the cone intakes do nothing, but getting more cool air into the engine never hurts.. esp if you have a chip.. plus since i put it in when in motion my engine temp hardly ever goes above 1/4... when im stuck in traffic though it jumps up to 1/2

blah, long story short - go for it

The thing I dont like about K&N is that they do not make a cone with an open front like this one

The following are linked directly from the K&N website.





Looks like you didn't quite research enough.

I almost bought the Ractive today but I seem to have a fitting problem..

It seems that almost all the intakes have a 3" opening and my original K&N & bracket are 2 3/4"

what size brackets do you guys have ?? The bracket that attaches to the AFM
