I have 2 kits in stock, that I will sell for $299.99 + shipping! They fit the 97-98 with no modifications. The 99-02's need to have the box trimed to fit the bigger oem fan shroud. We can do the modifications here before we ship the kit if you have a 99-02. Thanks!

That's a deal.  My larger TB/Roe/custom built airbox cost nearly $1000.  And my other car is a Paxton so it wouldn't fit, but the price is awesome for a stocker guy.  Hp increase would be about 4-6?

K&N claims 13 to 15 hp gain. Realistically I would say 10 or so.

I know retail on the kit is somewhere over $500!

We will do the modification to the box for no cost.

Sorry, been down for a while.  If you guys can mod one to fit my '01 GTS, I'll bite! :2thumbsup:

I'll PM too to make sure I'm getting through.

I'm assuming this is the K&N 57-1508 kit.  I've read a number of threads/posts on the VCA website that stated that it doesn't fit very well on the newer GEN IIs.  How much fabricating will you be doing to the box?  Do you have any pictures of it installed in an '01 or '02?  The price sure sounds right.  :2thumbsup:

Yes, it is the 57-1508 kit. The fab is just cutting "slots" in the bottom of the box to fit correctly. In 99 they came with the bigger cooling fan (trying to help the overheating issue) which makes this kit not fit right, the slots we make let it slip over the thicker fan shroud.

 Mike wants one of the kits, so I am going to do the modification for his and install it on a 01 GTS that we have in the shop for test fit. Then I will also take some pics so you all can see what it is.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Sweet!  Thanks.  I think it would look nice, but my mind can't wrap around just how it will fit in there.

They've worked up the fabrication and should be getting some pics up on the site soon.  I saw preliminary pics just now, but I would imagine that they're going to want to clean up the parts a little before putting up public images.

Just got the K&N kit today on the porch.  Yes, Jeremy DID clean it all up.  I plan on putting it on the car on Sunday if the weather holds.  I'll take some pics so you guys can see how it turns out.  So far, I'm pretty impressed with the craftsmanship of the air box... and the carbon fiber looks pretty cool. :D

Carbon Fiber?  I thought K&N airboxes were all cheapo plastic like the factory airbox?   :headscratch:

Hard to believe a cf anything at that price!   :2thumbsup:

Well, it was CF with just a quick look in the box when I got it.  Now, upon unpacking the box, I see it's just textured plastic on the inside surface.  I'll be putting it on today.

A quick question: The instructions say to remove the negative cable at the battery.  Why would that be necessary?  The only thing electrical involved is the air temp sensor and it has a connector to unplug it from the harness. If it's really necessary to take off the wheel and the battery cover to do this, I may as well install a new battery while I'm at it!

You guys see any reason to disconnect the negative at the battery?

I was WAY wrong ... that sucker IS carbon fiber!  Just got it out of the box and packing to put it on the car and I was really surprized.  God, it weighs NOTHING.

Any market out there for original air boxes?
