Yea I think this one's the way to go. The shielding is far more complete than the Steeda. The only thing I'm worried about is the air routing to the filter. It kinda of looks like it would have to work a bit harder than steeda's, as steeda's design pipes the air right under the filter, instead of around a bend like the K&N. Still, this seems like the best thing out there. Gonna place my order tomorrow.
