I understand and should have it Thursday. I like that fact that its a direct swap unlike the green. I'm all into modifications and have no problem puttting parts on that aren't always a perfect fit, but the car I rely on daily needs to fit right. Now if SCT would just get a VXB1 calibration into their system!!!! :horse:
The green doesn't clip in like the OE. Its a moot point, (believe me I know all about aftermarket not fitting-- I have two lifts and do work on the side) but for this vehicle I wanted exact. Green is fine and would have suited me if K&N didn't bring out a product so quickly. Compare the "flower petals" as I call them lacking on the Green to the K&N:

Sorry, updated them.
Pretty much as expected, nothing other than maybe the placebo effect. Its been raining here and only did the drive into work today with it on/in.
Yeah, I had to put it on the lift lol! Good point. Takes longer to get in the car to pop open the hood then to replace it.
