Default K&N 63-1561 Installed review

Installed my K&N intake today, install wasn't too bad, took about 2 hours. Fit seems to be ok, couple of things I didn't like, the crank case vent cover extension is cut the old and add an extension, that you then have to trim, seems a bit jerry rigged, also the IAC sensor seems to just hang out in the grommet, doesn't go all the way in(could be installer error). Seems to have better throttle response, makes a really cool sound when you rev it, too soon to know about mpg.

My sensor doesn't fit either , falls out randomly due to where the grommet is too tight and wont allow you to install it properly. That is why my setup is coming off next week . Tired of fooling with the K&N junk

Saw a trick on a youtube, put a little petroleum jelly and it will slide right in. I tried it and it works.

you installed it improperly, its suppose to fit in it. Its hard but it will go in

you can use liquid hand soap to help you lub the 2 parts, but just a little bit of soap.

the sensor is suppose to go in properly in the grommet and secure once in it, you can use liquid soap to help you do it, on the grommet.

I didn't have any issues with mine. I keep Window Film spray around for anything that need "assistance" to get into a tight spot. I have used it various things. Works great.
