cold-air intake recommendations?

Been looking around and deciding between 2 K&N ones but still unsure what to get. Anyone have recommendations based on ones they have?

I like RotoFab. It increases HP, throttle response and looks good too

Do a search and find Janetty's dyno test. He tested most of the popular ones back to back and I think the CAI made the most power. He then added a ADM scoop to the CAI and it made even more power.

If you research it sum, you won't be considering between 2 K&N intakes. Unless you are only wanting to spend the least amount possible. Also in case you are under the impression that you will be getting the big HP gains that K&N puts on the Internet, you will be in for a sad surprise!

Get a good quality CAI, like the ADM Race or Street series w/ scoop! I have it and love it. Perfect balance of looks, performance, and versatility in case you wanna go supercharged on down the line!

I have the CAI, washer relocation and air scoop. All purchased from Chase at Apex. Great guys to deal with. Easy install, Chase even recommend how I could hide the washer bottle inside the CAI box looks awesome. Sounds great. MRT V2 install this coming weekend.
