No love for the LX/EX owners :cry:

Sorry guys! At this time K&N doesn't make these for the 2.4 LX/EX cars. :(

I can get you guys the Injen setup if you'd like. Or is there anything else you guys would like to see? Let me know and I'll make it happen!

Sigh... I want but :2cents:

"Some Typhoon Air Intakes are not legal for use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal."

Leave it to Cali and the EPA to make a device that makes a car run more efficient "illegal." Pfft! Cold, clean air does not create negative emissions for a car. Complete idiots!!

Air Intake Systems FAQs, What does an air intake system do?

On a different note.... very cool that you're offering these now, David! :)

Yes I agree it sucks the emissions laws in California are horrible. Modifying any OEM exhaust on an automobile is illegal in California, technically. :thumbsdown:


LX/EX rear diffusers ehem ehem lol

Do you know of any reason why this wouldn't fit a 2014? I will definitely jump on this. I don;t know how I missed this thread in the first place.
