Best CAI???

Ok i know iv seen a dyno forum on here comparing all of the dyno's but i cant find it. I just want the best bang for the buck i was looking at the Steeda but its 299 and the Fswerks with the green filter is 159 there is quiet a big difference there so i just wanna know if its going to be worth it or save the 140 and buy something else with it

I would do FSWERKS CAI and get a rear sway bar. Just me.

Does it give you a gurgling sound at low speed/heavy load like the open-end COBB filter (for example) or running without the air box cover? I tried the Injen and the COBB and removed them shortly after because they sounded ridiculous. Trying to find something that sounds good and not stupid, but I don't feel like wasting the money to try them all.

Just grab the open-end K&N drop in. Small noise increase but not anything obnoxious.

The Cobb air filter looks identical to the open-end K&N, just a different color.

The best bang for your buck is a K&N drop-in and remove the snorkel. <$50.
