K&N is good but there are several out there that are just as good with a cheaper price. the only real difference is the filter on the end of the tube aside from that they are all pretty much the same.

I've always been partial to the looks and quality of the Volant, I'm sure the performance is the same as all the others.Adam

For intakes in general I would say k&n but if its cai you are looking for I would go with Volant

X4 on K&N CAI,But in General most of the CAI's on the market today are Very Good.It really all depends on which one you feel is the best for your ride.

I'm a full supporter of AirAID. I like the look and the performance. Like the others have said, it's a matter of personal preference.2005 Chevy Silverado Z71 in Black

I really like the Volant. But go with the PowerCore filter. There is no oiling required, and you only have to clean it every 100k miles. I've had K&N and the regular Volant Blue filters, and the oiling is really not much fun.Thanks,
