You basically have it right... a snorkel delete and open-end drop in will give you the most sound without buying a separate CAI. Cobb also makes an open-ended filter, you can check all of them out on the FSWERKS web site to compare.

This is what I have on mine. If you get tired of the sound you can put the cap on the end and still enjoy the performance benefit of the K&N filter

Ya, I like that option, it's good quality and makes good sound... I'm just wondering if there is a DRY open-end so I can avoid having to re-oil...

So the Green is oiled too, I guess I don't mind going that route, from what I've heard it's actually better than the K&N, you just can't cap it...

Yes it is oiled and I do think it is better quality. You can buy a cap for it if you want to put it on in winter or something.

Cool, thanks for the tip... I just found it for under $60 shipped so it looks like the way to go.
