it looks good, but i would rather get the piping from autozone, and while im there just pick up a K&N or something that is compatible to the quality level of K&N

looks like legit K&N intake for 2011 2.4 sonata is in the market... bit pricey going at over $300.. but looks wayy better than those greasy no name brand ones.. anyone yet to try it?
K&N TYPHOON AIR INTAKE 2011 HYUNDAI SONATA 2.4L - eBay (item 220717485555 end time Mar-01-11 12:52:12 PST)
IMHO I think CAI is a waste of money for this car. If you look at the system Sonata uses it already has a form of CAI. It gets its cold air from the front via a ram type design. Why would you want to draw hot air from the engine compartment like all the CAI use.?? Someone has a design that mounts the CAI filter in the fender area and I would be concerned that it would draw water into the filter and cause more problems during heavy rains.

Here is an engine bay pic...


Why is everyone so worried about rain water? I have a CAI and driven through bad rain storms with near horizontal rain... still fine. You won't hydrolock your engine unless you fully submerge your filter in water.

Anyways, $300 for ~7hp? no thanks... Make it yourself for less $$.

That stock setup is not that great... especially when K&N can still squeeze out ~7hp and ~7ft-lb
