    K&N air filter

    Hey guys just wanted to give everyone the heads up on k&n's new drop in filter.http://www.knfilterchargers.com/sear...x?Prod=33-2649
    Of couse a cai would be more sound but being the fact that this is the first product offered by k&n for the V(other than an oil filter)makes it somewhat worth looking into.

    Interesting, this is a filter for a 2liter and smaller motor. Something wierd here.

    That is the same filter that Cadillacfaq.com has listed for a long time now. When I called K&N about it because they did not list it as working for the CTS-V, they told me not to use it. It had not been tested for fitment. I guess they have tested it now.

    Yep, you put it in...does it fit? Looks good...that process probably took months.

    It fits but not right. Its a little short of fitting properly. About 3/16" short. It has to be squeezed in place.

    It's also the same filter that comes with the StealthV FFV.

    i really don't think so....Rick can correct me...but his is NOT just the filter you can buy off the shelf....and besides, the K&N with the FFV system fits perfectly...no bending, no nothing

    As others have stated, that is not the filter that comes with the FFV.

    So let me see if I understand this correctly:

    K&N WILL sell you a filter for the V that does NOT quite fit a V....

    And K&N will NOT sell you a filter for the V that DOES fit the V...

    Oh boy, too confusing.
