K&N Drop in Filter

Worth the 35$? Trying to justify spending the money on a birthday gift to myself haha. Will it change anything? Not expecting big things to come out of it. Maybe a better sound or whatever. Not going to get the TYPHOON until the car is paid off.

NOPE, You might get .1 of a MPG. I noticed zero. Probably because the GM one is already of a very good quality. Sorry bud get yourself a $35 gift card to a pizza joint, you will get to enjoy it more.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

If you plan on staying NA, I'd recommend saving up for a quality CAI like K&N or Injen. It's relatively inexpensive, makes for a fun DIY project, and sounds amazing. You might only gain a horsepower or two (w/o a tune), but it's an essential beginner's mod that everyone who's interested in performance should do. And if you can manage to keep your foot off the gas, you might even save a little at the pumps.

Just beware of deep water.

K&N for the na and TC cobalts is short ram.... no need to worry about water for that, unless your driving through rivers, ponds or anything like that. AEM is a CAI for the NA cars that goes down along the fender into the bumper. The Injen is a multi piece intake and can be used as a CAI or it can be taken apart and used a short ram.
