Review: K&N Short Ram Intake (Base)

Manufacturer Part #: 69-4515TS
Application: 05+ Chevy Cobalt 2.2L
MSRP: $449

* The Typhoon replaces restrictive and certainly less attractive OEM parts with high-performance, hot-looking components
* High-flow, washable/reusable conical Filtercharger® airflow filter to ensure the highest flowing filtration possible
* 6063 mandrel bent aluminum tubing
* FIPK (Fuel Injection Performance Kits)

Easy to install in 90 minutes or less! Virtually eliminates intake tract restriction by replacing the air filter and the entire air path to the engine. All K&N® Typhoon™ air intake systems come with a reusable conical K&N® Filtercharger® backed by the company's Million Mile Limited Warranty. DryCharger® available on cold-air and complete cold-air applications. Stainless steel installation hardware and step-by-step installation instructions included.

Pros: The product was easy to install, good instructions, provided a noticeable performance gain, and was a visually nice addition to the engine bay.
Cons: I dont really have any complaints except for i wish they would have offered it in more colors so i dont have to powder coat mine lol

This product is absolutely awesome. I have no complaints about it. My #1 choice

Pros: Noticeable HP gain, sound is definitely louder and deeper, looks a lot better than the stock for sure.
Cons: Like the guy above me said, wish it came in different colors to match body. Thats ok though

I have had my K&N Typhoon SRI for about 4 days now and love it! I did a lot of research on this website and MANY other websites [not just cobalt forums] about the K&N Typhoon and heard nothing but great things about it. 5 stars for sure!!

here's a video of before and after intake, and also a little RUN FOR YA!
