Icon5 CAI vs K&N drop in?

the debate seems to be pretty equal as to the number of ppl that would choose a side but no ones mentioned any gains for either side. so what side gets you the best hp? k&n drop in or cold air
oh almost forgot. where does ram air sit in all this? thats the only one i havent really looked into yet sorry

Re: CAI vs K&N drop in?

With out getting the car tuned you are looking at minimal hp gains. Maybe better gas mileage.

^ x2


a CAI vs k&n filter in stock box is basically the same thing. AEM v2 shortram will give you the most gains besides a Type-S intake.


There are at least 3 threads on this topic within the past 2 days and tons more besides that -_- research my new friend, research.

think about how hot it gets inside the engine bay. then your sucking that air directly into your engine.


imagine how hard it is to breathe in a sauna. same principle.

Sure you can do that, if all you want is hot air. It works when you have a supercharger because the intercooler will cool the air.

Edit: Yes I am a dumbf**k, don't listen to anything I say lol!
