I have the AM intake with a K&N cone on it. It's a good kit, just gotta plug a little hole in the intake tube.

The only thing you'll gain from a branded model is size. I have the JLT cai and the piping is MASSIVE to say the least. It's big enough to fit my old k&n inside it and it doesn't touch the walls at all. On top of that different materials trap heat different. That's the only downfall to the am cai. It's metal and it heat the air as its traveling down the piping. Use some heat wrap and you've solved the problem. FYI I've had 3 different cai and I could tell a difference between them all. The AM feels better then stock, that's about the extent of that description. The K&N had better throttle response then the am simply because of lack of piping but I didn't feel a gain at all. The JLT has the same response as the k&n but I could tell power increases in the higher rpm. Not much but it was noticeable to me.
