Has anyone installed the Ultra cold air intake? From the pictures it looks lid a K&N filter with two rubber hoses. Doesn't look like it's worth $400. Do you think it's worth the price?

Some people in this forum have made their own cold air intake and it looks and works pretty good as far as I know. I purchased the kit along with the plug wires and ecm reprogramming. I'm happy with the results in greater power and better mileage. I could have put together a cold air intake of my own design that would have worked I'm sure but the time saved and knowing it was made to fit and work without hassle made it worth it to me to purchase. If you are handy at all and like to create your own modifications I would say go for it! But if you're not all that handy or not concerned about the expense of the kit then the kit is a quick and easy way to get more power. Good luck either way with your decision!

The filter used in the Ultrapower Cold Air Kit has more layers of cotton fiber. The unit filters and flows more air than the K&N. I have been using the Ultrapower Cold Air Kit for almost a year now and I believe it has been a good investment.

Many of our iRV2 members have constructed DIY CAI and what remains in common between DIY and off the shelf commercial products is the need to get as much air into the engine as possible. Whether you do this yourself through ingenuity or by ordering a kit you will get close to the same results.

Buying an Ultrapower CAI unit would not have been an expensive mistake, it's worth the cost.
