K&N FIPK Installation

K&N FIPK Installation
Installation at the throttle body is simple. First, you install the adapter, which, according to K&N, "...create(s) a radius entry which reduces restriction and allows the engine to ingest an even greater volume of air"

Once you have the adapter on the throttle body, you slide the air tube into the top. It's tight, so you may have to wiggle it and use a bit of force. Two hose clamps hold the tube and adapter on the throttle body and give a snug, air-tight fit.

The FIPK kit comes with a new breather hose to replace your stock one, which originally came in at a 90 degree angle. Again, 2 angles are better than 3 in this case.

Here's the Crown Jewel of the FIPK, the air filter itself, in all of its pink glory. K&N claims that these come pre-oiled, but I recommend hitting it with the included oil anyway, prior to installation.

The tube was fed through the hole in the baffle and sits in a metal, 1/2-circle cradle (not shown) on the back side. The cradle doesn't hold the tube very tightly, but does offer some support. The filter is then held on with another hose clamp.

The FIPK kit comes with a few accessories, including the recharge kit, which is a bottle of oil and a bottle of cleaner. It also comes with this nifty "Precharger" which adds protection from dust and water.

With the Precharger on you not only hear the air coming in but you can see it, as the material gets sucked in against the filter.

Now you can really see the difference between the mods. The FIPK makes a whole lot of sense and, well, it looks cooler, too.
