Why did you order the K&N? Thats a 2.5 tube also isnt it?
IMO if you were gonan upgrade, shoulda gone with a 3" CAI, like a AEM or somthing.
I have had yet to see one post about a PVC intake actually releasing harmfull gasses into a motor and causing damage, i can understand if it actually melts, but have yet to year of that happening too.
Seen PVC intakes on quite a few DSMs also, ghetto? Yes, but it can work if needed.
Again, just my opinion.
