Best Cold Air Intake - 2011 V6 Camaro

I have decided on getting a cold air intake for my 2011 V6 Camaro.
Which one is the best? I'm really looking for a nice sound.
It looks like Cold Air Inductions and K&N are among the top, but feel free to suggest any others. THANKS!

Between the two I would prob go with Cold Air induction. I personally prefer roto-fab for obv reasons.

INJEN, VARARAM, ROTO-FAB AIR-RAID. Just to name a few others.

Best one today is probably the Vararm, followed closely by many of the others. It becomes a personal choice, including what you plan to do with your underhood look.

For me at the time the INJEN was at the top of the list and the Vararam was not yet on the market.

I made it work for me.

I'd vote for the Vararam. I just installed it last week and it really is everything that people have positively raved about. Increased throttle response and a mean sound.

I was a huge fan of rotofab. Great sound and a noticeable increase in performance and it doesn't look cheap or out of place like some of the cheaper ones.

The only thing I dont like about the varam is how it leaves like a giant void where the old air intake use to be lol.

Going to move my catch can over there as it will make it easier to drain and fill the void.
