I know it's still early but I haven't seen a discussion thread about this yet.

Has anyone contacted K&N or the larger manufacturers yet?

Emailed K&N a couple of times; still not on K&N site; was told not yet available.

Perhaps more of us contacting them would show interest and get results sooner...

Just a thought...

K&N actually reached out to me and asked to borrow my car for 2-3 days to develop and install an intake and said they would give me the intake and a rental car for free. But I live in Normal and they are based in SoCal (hours away). So if anyone in SoCal can do it that would be great.

I live about an hour from them, but I would never leave my car at any shop. I really hate others driving my cars.

I was about to tag you into this thread lol.

@Sleao did they provide any info on who to contact? Maybe share it here so someone else close by can contact them?

For the uninitiated, what can an K&N filter do for you? Better mpg? power? sounds fun?

And not to sound antagonistic (I'm genuinely curious) @Sleao , how can aftermarket folks develop better intake (and/or other parts) in only a matter of days over OEM?

Better mpg and more power with greater air flow with less restrictions.

OE manufacturers design their products to meet middle specs to provide longevity. So there's always room for improvement unless you're buying a racecar.

All, in case anyone new is here, K&N is still looking for someone to test fit and give a free intake to.

Hello,

We still have not had the Telluride owner sign up for testing and a free intake kit! I understand the holidays had people tied up, but if at all possible if your interested or can keep helping to spread the word we would appreciate it!

Thank you,

If it was a one day deal while I'm there then I'd volunteer. As mentioned previously I won't leave my ride at any shop. I got trust issues.
