K&N is one of the top-performing intakes, right up there with Steeda. I personally would shy away from the Injen, as it has an inferior heat shield for rejection of underhood heat.

I'd say steeda If you want you filter in stock location. Otherwise I think AEM or Injected's full CAI would be good choices.
