They all use same filter just make sure it has very little bends no corrugation heat shield and the piping is plastic not metal plastic keeps heat away and the metal absorbs it

Do you need a tune to use a CAI on the V6's? I'm sure if you go with a CAI +tune package, you'll definitely get more out of that CAI. I like Steeda.

By that logic sounds like C&L is the way to go. That's what I have and I like it a lot, I can't compare it to anything else though because that's all I've experienced. Don't have the tune yet but hopefully soon will

C&L is one of the worst performance wise actually. It goes JLT then Airaid. Airaid has the better more secure heatshield though.

I bought an Airaid, but I almost bought a JLT. They're both great.

Aem is overpriced in my opinion and apparently according to dyno results performs worse then airaid/JLT
