    Found this intake on ebay. I was reluctant to buy even for this price but Messaged the seller and asked what brand it was. They promptly responded that the product was Made in the USA by K&N.
    I ordered one this morning so I'll give an update once I get it. If its as good a deal as it appears, then awesome, otherwise the seller's gonna get an ear full from me;)
    As it doesn't specifically state it's K&N in the description, I can't guarantee it's really K&N to anyone but it sure looks like a good deal. Purchase at your own risk 'til I give an update on it.:cool:
    Linky to the ebay

    Alright, Update:

    Got it fed ex today, installed it this afternoon. It wasnt a K&N like they said it was though, it was branded "Kool-Vue" on the box. The filter appears to be K&N though. It fit together decently but the directions werent very detailed. Basically stated somthing like
    "remove 2 bolts from engine cover, loosen clamps on intake and throttle body. Disconnect MAF wiring. Remove vaccum hose and valve cover breather hose from intake and remove the intake. Flip valve breather hose. Assemble heat shield, bolt on. assemble intake tube with factory MAF and assemble loosely. when everything is in place, tighten clamps."
    That was about the extent of the directions, nothing about what goes where, what bolts to use where, or what clamps go where. Overall it seemed to be a decent intake, and for only $85 you can't beat it!

    Theres a pic of it in my build thread. Link's in my sig, check it out. Im still runnin it, seems just fine to me. One note: It gives a great growl under hard acceleration so if you're looking for quiet, then this intake isnt for you..... Personally I think it sounds pretty badass though.
