I've got the perrin, and it's So oily that it leaked on the box that they sent to me. I just let it dry out in a room for a couple of days, then threw it on. I was scared it might throw off the MAF sensor.

After reading all the horror stories about CIA's in general, I wrote to K&N about the Typhoon. It seems that K&N made an effort to keep the diameter/airflow within 15% of the stock system, and to locate the MAF in the stock location. On that basis, it should work as intended; delivering a bit more flow of lower temperature air.

You will still get an argument about how the air will be heated by the turbo, and the issue of water ingestion remains. Any CIA is expensive in terms of power gain, but the K&N is a smog-legal mode. My local dealer sells them in his parts department.

It was good to hear that someone is using one successfully with a Cobb setup. I had thought that the lean tune by Cobb, coupled with the K&N leaning things out further, might be too much.
