K&N and SLP have a lot of brand recognition but their real world results are underwhelming.

Page 2 for HP and TQ graphs. Depends what you want from your intake. CAI and Airaid give good low end TQ gains in comparison to the others. CAI gives a higher peak HP also.

I read through that thread and after weighing the factors went with CAI. Highest HP, Good low end torque increases, and it looks awesome!

I bought mine along with a MRTv2 exhaust from Apex and the process was easier than anything I could have dreamed of. Ordered them last Friday and they got here Tuesday and Thursday, and they're just waiting to go in the car this weekend!

Regardless of my own opinion, that thread with comparison graphs and numbers will really help you out when deciding. You just have to know what you want!

Keep in mind that airflow is not the only factor in achieving a power gain, your IAT is equally important, and also where we place a lot of emphasis on in our design. Let me know if you have any questions, I would be happy to help in any way that I can.
