Can't comment on the Injen, but...

Sound on my K&N is pretty freakin sweet. I passed a friend on the road the other day and he commented later that my car sounded mean.

There's been quite a few dyno's of the K&N, most recently dyno-whateverhisnumbersare. He said that he saw a 10 hp and 10 ft-lb increase. My butt dyno says that's about right.

is that silver bit supposed to be a heat shield???
That's the one! And yes...Injen calls that little piece of chrome a heat shield. . But, the whole intake is made of billet aluminum, and integrates the MAF nicely, which is more than can be said for K&N.

Still, I'd choose the K&N. That heat shield is just pathetic.

I'd hold off for now on buying a K&N...I'm one of the ones whose had a problem. The intake itself is great, it's the MAF housing that's the problem. As far as Injen is concerned, there's really no heat shield provided AFAICT. To me, that would rule out the intake.

LD5050 I chose injen CAIs on my last 4 vehicles. I researched everything that was available and went with the injen each time. Never had any problems. Great power, aggressive sound ( for an intake)

Resolve Don't know about the injen, but would verify that K&N fixes their issue with theirs prior to buying.

Some people are having issues with the filter coming off while driving. I believe it is due to the stock MAF housing design and the way the filter fits on it with the K&N intake kit. and people also over tightening the filter and it cracking the MAF housing.

indystar Can u expand on that answer really looking for a definitive or some answers with some backed up reasons so I can make a decision.

Outlaw5.0 The K&N would be my choice.
