Ease of Installation
I wanted to like it but I couldn't. After modifying the evap suction hose to make it fit my 2014 Explorer everything was ready to go. Without modification, install took me about 10 min. Unfortunately, without a box of some sort around the filter the engine noise would echo out the intake tube and was so noisy that I eventually removed the intake from the car. Performance and gas mileage did not appreciably change so the only thing it really did was make the car noisy. I could not take it so I removed the intake and now it sits in a box in the garage waiting for the next garage sale. I was really disappointed it didn't work, but you win some and you lose some. Sorry guys. Although all the categories above deserved 5 star ratings the intake just wasn't for me. I am also confused by the name "Cold Air Intake". Since there is no isolation box around the filter it is drawing air from a hot engine compartment so why is it called a "Cold Air" intake? Also, it is tucked into the left front corner of the engine compartment out of the direct flow of "cold" air through the front grill. The intake really looked nice and I really, really wanted to like it but it was just too noisy for me with very little benefit in performance/mileage. Based on my experience I would have to say pass on this intake. IMO.
