Is this a real question? K&n is only for the guy who is fine with wasting money, idk about for your year but K&n is normally stock size MAF and doesn't yield any horsepower

I was thinking about buying a k&n cold air intake too, but I heard it wasn't worth it.. Maybe it is if u get it tuned after.. I was also looking at the air raid cold air intskes

Get the jlt. It's twice the size of the k&n and much better quality. My k&n I had acted like it was cracked at the seem even when there was no crack. Plus the jlt is a true cai where it goes all the way into the fender down to the bottom were its going to get actual cold air, not hot engine air.

My k&n fit inside of my JLT. Literally

I guess any CAI should be fine no matter how big in width they are???? I really like JLT dnt mind paying 200 for it.. But if doesn't make a difference I can just go with a standard one..? What tuner do you guys recommend ?

Re: K&N or JLT

I LOVE my K&N CAI. Its sexy and gained me 11 hp when i tuned my car with it. Whoever said it doesn't yield anything is on crack. its a CAI. It Obviously has to yield SOMETHING even if its not much. Plus K&N is a great company so i go through them with most things...

Re: K&N or JLT

I'm trying the AFE one that AM has right now. Solid plastic construction similar to the K&N but runs into the fenerwell. Ill let everyone know how it performs after install.

Really with CAI it's kinda all about what you wan it to look like under the hood. I have the JLT and it looks great under the hood. Not the easiest to install like a BBK but I like it. I just got tired of cleaning the chrome look under my hood the black doesn't look as dirty.
