K&N replacement filter or BBK CAI?

The replacement filter is $150 cheaper than the CAI and I was wondering if there's a big difference between the two

Well the cai is a filter and tubing. The filter is just the filter obviously. But The design of the cai tube is designed to help flow air better than the stock one.

And the BBK has a much larger filter compared to stock so that's even more air

Without a tune there isn't much but if you get a CAI with a larger air tube and larger MAF then you can get some good gains!

That's induction noise. I love it. It tells me my car is sucking air harder than the car beside me, and that makes me feel good lol.
