I don't believe this to be true - from the picture it looks like it's in the same place as all other CAI filters.Don't bother with the K&N. They designed it so that the filter sits under one of those vent holes on the hood. When it rains, guess where the water would go? Into the filter. So their solution is to provide you with a blockoff port that goes under the vent to install when it rains. To me, that is just a PITA and poorly engineered.
Look at the AFE units, they seem to be very well designed. The JLT or Livernois units also work nicely.
I haven't bothered with one on mine. I removed the Heimholtz resonator and put in a Fenco plug. I then added an AFE dry flow replacement filter and it works great. A lot more noticeable whine from the SC as well.
