Well I just went back through the box that the filter came in and I found the braket. I was able to unscrew a screw from the KKM but I was not able to unscrew the screw to the support brace of the stock air box. For right now it is just sitting there, but I will get that damn screw off ... just wait and see.

Thanks for your help on this my stupid mistake.

Mine rubs too. The support bracket has to be bent and shaped to fit the filter. Anyway, I just left mine and let it scratch all the freakin paint it wants to. I might just place the filter on top of my amp wire and let it support it.

I put put a thin piece of foam with adhesive backing under where my KKM rubs at. No more paint being removed, but a square black piece of 1/8" foam is a little ugly.

I took the support bracket and drilled a hole at the top of the bracket about 1/4 inch down from the existing hole... this keeps the filter from rubbing the underside of the hood and from bouncing around..

The chrome tip of the filter is pointed down a little bit, but it looks pretty good.

K&N makes a cone that you can use, but they don't have a kit for the Cougar. If you want to spend the extra $40 or so for the K&N cone on top of the $100 for the KKM you can. But I mis typed the subject, it should have said KKM not KKN
