You can use a K&N with no worries of messing up your MAF. They come perfectly oiled from the factory. The time people are having trouble with them is like after 30K miles when they clean the filter and re-oil it. They end up using too much oil and then it gets on the MAF. If that happens just use a little electronics cleaner and the problem is solved. It has basically become and urban legend at this point, sheesh!

Which website, we have talked of two or three vendors

That neck down area needs to be eliminated-it chokes down 1" in diameter-think of how many less cfm flow through that than the throttle body. I made some measurements of the space and am currently doing some searches for a perfect fit universal cone or conical filter from different manufacturer's-there doesn't seem to be one, so I am comparing different very close matches.

I'm wondering if the airraid intake tube between the MAF and throttle body listed on another earlier thread fits on the SS to eliminate the silencer and further improve airflfow.

I think those mods plus opening the hole behind the grille CAI opening should be worth at least 10 hp.

None of my local parts places (NAPA, PartSource, Canadian Tire) had the E-1009 , so i ordered one off of ebay from "exotictruck-auto". Im gonna send him an email right now!


Edit: email sent, i looked through my files and my payment was sent to him on the 2nd of december, 2005. If i dont hear from him in 1-1.5 weeks, im reporting him to ebay!

*end rant*

the E-1009 is so common im surprised you had to order one. Every place i went had one but i ordered the E-0773 for a Colorado like ludicrist did. It eliminates the neckdown and was cheaper than the E-1009. bigger opening= better air flow. my
