Just finished installing a K&N Intake. NOTE: I used a K&N 69-5328TC MADE for the Kia Sorento 2.5T.

The tube and filter fit perfectly but the heat shield requires cutting because, although the K5 2.5T and Sorento 2.5T use the exact same tube and filter box, the Sorento's filter box is positioned lower in the engine compartment and the heat shield is taller to fit it. I had to cut the heat shield 3/4 inch lower to make it fit my K5. The heat shield box mounts in the K5 - just needed to cut a small piece of plastic on the battery box to make it fit perfectly:





If you want to install the K&N intake made for the Sorento in your K5 you'll have to cut 3/4" off the top of the heat shield. Disclaimer: I made this work in my K5, it will affect the resale and K&N warranty. Modify AT YOUR OWN PERIL.
