Why Cold Air Inductions is the fairest of the land. I linked a thread about mine.

There is no one "BEST". Most any one on the market is better than stock. It comes down to what look you want and your budget.

I have the Vararam cold air/ram air setup and really like it.

I had a small increase in low end torque and the exhaust became deeper and the in-cabin sound is 10x better than stock.
plus no need to buy a relocation kit and air scope to get the maximum amount of air

Longtube injen all day with t2 ports, cold air directly to the intake, huge improvement in power:

One way to think about it is who has the fastest 1/4 mile times. The top all have Inject Long tube Intake.

CAI and Vararam also have shown good improvements and would also be considered the top tier. I have (currently) the RotoFab and it gave a noticeable improvement.

Those are the 4 that seem to be the most popular.

I would say stay away from Spectre and K&N. K&N makes good filters, but their CAI is not very good at keeping the air cold as engine bay temps climb. Spectre is for the "show" crowd, not the "go" crowd.

Based on tons of posts here on C5, The favorites (NOT in order) are:
Injen
Vararam
Roto-Fab
Cold Air Industries, inc.
Airaid


There are others, but they get mentioned much less often. Hope that helps.

There is no "best" but there are many of good brands here. Injen, Roto-Fab, CAI, etc.

I agree with AuotAgenda, Cold Air Inductions is the way to go!!! I love mine!!
