Right now I don't have a proper SRI, just a filter and no lid. But at highway speeds it's still only a couple of degrees difference even without a heat shield.

Go with the K&N!! The Injen Doesn't have the proper heat shielding, and K&N has a much better reputation, and delivers higher power.

Not too impressed with K&N right now, I've been getting P2227 and P22230 engine codes from the get go, we've gone through the install, cleaned the mass air flow sensor, no luck and no response from K&N, ready for something else...

Love my INJEN.

Dry filter, high quality MAF housing built in, ZERO issues or codes thrown and, I have yet to see a thread titled "Warning about INJEN intake".

I've not seen a thread dedicated to it, but I've seen plenty of complaints about Injen's low-tech heat shield causing heat soak at idle.

I haven't experienced it. If it is really hot out while running a/c it is a little sluggish but it has always been that way. The intake made NO difference.

There is no way that you're not pulling more heat in with the Injen than with the stock intake, but I'm glad it has worked for you.

My K&N has also worked very well regardless of the warning thread.

I don't know if I am pulling heat in or not, all I know is it works great. No problems. No cracking OEM MAF housing, no falling off filter, no washing and oiling of filter NO trouble codes thrown. Just running great.
