AEM CAI or K&N Aircharger

Ok after I took off my procharger I have been running with the stock intake for a while now. I had a AEM CAI before with great results but I have heard great things about the K&N as of late. For those of you that have either SPEAK UP and help me decide on which to get. As always thx for your time and input in advance.

intakes

i will be able to tell you more after wednesday, i just ordered the K&N aircharger. the main reason for me is that i have some flooding when it rains heavy, and only so many ways home i would have to go through at least one. also if you decide on the K&N check-out www.4filters.com i got mine for $230.94 and free ground shipping. good luck on your decision.

I have the K&N SRAM intake on my car, and it's great. You sacrifice a minimal amount of power by going SRAM over CAI, but the ability to cruise through deeper puddles is worth the all of 1 HP drop. I say go for the SRAM.

yeah, I've had my SRAM for over a year now, and I couldn't be happier. If you don't ever go near puddles and aren't afraid of hydrolock, get the CAI, if not, go SRAM.

FEAR NOT ENGINES! I have equipped my CAI with the Magical Bypass Valve of Anti-Hydrolock +2

Best of both worlds.
