Jlt you don't wanna get any kinda of metel cai because it defeates the hole reason becuase after 15 mints of driving the intake pipe will get as hot at the engine bay witch will heat the air going in the the motor you want a composet cai for the best resaults

Re: CAI?

Honestly, I had a K&N Composite intake before and it got cracked while out of the car. Now i have the 79.99 one from AM.com and it works just as well

I have the JLT, looks good and adds a little hp. But mine and some other people I know, the clamps come loose all the time I've had to tighten mine 3 times this year. But it really looks good under the hood.

I have a 55 dollar eBay intake on mine. It works just as well as the C&L I had on my last one. C&L is the best to go with, their intake is made of a material that doesn't hear up, it's awesome to pop the hood and touch it and it's only warm when the engine is hot. But honestly as long as you get rid of the restrictive air box its going to help. It's a matter of opinion really, and budget.

Like a few people have said above, stay away from a metal cai. The only difference between brand are the diameter of the pipe and material. Theres nothing wrong with k&n or a ebay or using regular white pvc plumbing pipe. It's all the same thing. Plastic or composites do not retain heat like the metal ones which makes them better. The metal ones basically bake the air as it's traveling to the engine. So all that nice clean cool air has now been heated up by the time it reaches the motor, and you wasted money. Prolonged use of heat like that can wear down a motor much faster. HEAT KILLS POWER
