Performance Intake?

I have a 2013 Titanium. I am looking at buying a new intake fir the car. But which one should I buy? My choices are the FSWerks or KN? Any help on which is better? More power verses the other. Thanks guys.

Fswerks does good for the price, but k&n will be better because it will help draw cold air to the filter. I'd also say look into the Steeda CAI it is one of the best IMO.

I have to agree, the Steeda defintely is a great intake, their velocity stack design really improved the way air flows in the intake. Also, the billet aluminum MAF housing is pretty rugged and prevents the risk of cracking the stock one like people have done with the K&N. I have had both the K&N and Steeda. Both are awesome, but the Steeda had a bit smoother of a power band and a bit more HP with my car. The unfortunate thing with these SRI is that they all compromise low end TQ. AEM is the only true AFTERMARKET CAI and that one has shown the best gains because it is the only intake that is placed outside the engine bay.

Steedas intake the CAI at least isolates the air filter and retains the cold air feeds. But you are correct the aem relocates the filter out of the engine bay.

Stock wise they use the same throttle assembly.

In and of it self no. The throttle body is not the restriction at the ST power levels.

There is a company that will bore out your throttle body. Kinda expansive. I forget there name.
