i just got mine in today for my 06' and man what a difference it makes! i got an 06' xl with a 3.0 and 3.73's with the posi trac diff. had to test it in the rain but it got sideways through 3rd gear..... would barely get through first in the rain and only chirp second before. oh and that damn zip tie throttle cable thing actually works!!!!! glad i found it. those are the first two mods i've done! oh if i take it in to get warranty work done do i need to put the stock box back on? the ABS light is on at 3,300 miles already :-(.

Looks great! You will need to take it off to bring it in for service.

from what I understand, they cannot void the warentee for aftermarket parts UNLESS they can prove that the aftermarket part was to blame for the part that went bad

yea personally I didnt feel a big difference with just the K&N, however once I got my header back exhaust I really noticed a big improvement.

Zip tie mod
