You didn't notice a difference in atleast fuel efficiency?

Also, I can't seem to find one on eBay...What exactly did you search?

check out ebay #8018210820 this is just like the one i bought but i got one with a K/N filter same contents though. The reason the sportage isnt listed is because on my 2000 there is a plug that is on the factory air box that i had to put on the new intake (had to drill a hole in the new chrome aluminum shaft to mount the plug on the intake) it only took about 10 minutes (drill and mount sensor) to do this and about 30 minutes total to install completely. I put a little bit of epoxy (i got the epoxy at walmart)around the plug so that it wouldnt back out.

Are you guys running the Intakes out of the engine bay? Or just leaving the cones in the engine bay to suck up hot air?

We have an actual "bolt on" CAI available for the sportage, that requires no modification.

I have been running it on my sportage for about a month, and I haven't thrown a CEL or had any problems. Its great. Noticable gains, and the sounds is nice but not overbearing.

We are selling complete CAI kits, includes the tubing, air filter, all neccessary clamps (and other hardware), as well as the radiator reseivoir relocation bracket.

I will post pics sometime today, along with a price if you are interested.

We should have a website up in the near future, with a full catalogue of parts for the sportage.

I'm very interested! Today is the first time I've really taken a look at the stock induction system and it sucks. The air has to travel a long way to get to the engine...Like there's the intake, then it has to travel through some corners like 2-3 feet to the air filter, then like another 2-3 feet to the engine...it's ridiculous!
