    Default I have a K&N intake.

    I have a K&N intake and its great. If your looking for K&N or the more expensive brands just look on ebay, i got mine used for 170 including shipping, sure beats 300 bucks to buy it new.

    I just picked up an AEM Brute Force for my 4.8 and there's a real nice differnce in tone and power than

    what i was getting with the K & N CAI i had for a couple of years.

    And they are oil free filters which is nice.
