There is a lot more to intake design than it may seem on the surface. K&N has a lot of brand recognition but they are not the best systems (not the worst either though).

The search function works quite well. I'd suggest you use it. Then come back and tell us if you think they are all created equal.

OH, K&N is NOT considered one of the top names.

I wish you'd change your tune..I'm about to have one for sale. I could use a ringing endorsement

(don't hate it was on the car when I bought it)

The top names that have similar designs. But there are different designs...underhood, underhood enclosed, underhood enclose with a scoop, ram air, fenderwell. Each has it's own advantage and disadvantage. If you know what you're looking for then it won't matter how many people show up saying "yada yada FTW"...and it won't matter how many people give it a +1 either. Don't pick one because someone else recommended it or because it is the most popular or the top brand. Find out the differences and then pick out the one you feel suits you. As far as the link you posted, stay away from that one. ESPECIALLY at that price. Heck at any price stay away, lol!

CAI, Airaid and Roto-Fab are definitely superior and the Airaid and Roto-Fab are not much more in cost. We have a few promotions going right now. Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,
