Re: K&N 63-1563 Performance Intake Kit on 2014 5.7

I am wondering same thing. Research isn't helping; seems like a 50/50 split between people saying it boosts HP and other saying it does nothing, or even HURTS performance. One question, based on some naysayers: Does the vehicle's ECU really negate positive effects of aftermarket intake almost immediately, unless it is "flashed" or otherwise reset?

I have the K&N on my 2012. I love it. I don't think it boosts HP at all but, the sound is incredible (I think both statements will hold true for all CAI's)

Did you install yourself? How long did it take? Difficulty level??

Did you install it? Fit ok? If it fits I assume the volant will fit as well.
