Default Cold Air Intake

I am starting this thread to get everyone who has one to post up their cold air intake preference and why. I will keep tabs on it and keep results in this post for quick reference. Give year and engine in your post. I am looking for personal expierence not what someone has heard about a certain intake. Please keep your posts limited to CAI talk.

My vote goes for the K&N, I have the 77 Series installed in my Ford truck that is my reason why. But seriously it performs really well if you'd ask me.

K&N has my vote, put one on my 07 4.6L. Claims a 9hp increase but I havent personally dynoed it. LOVE the sound and a definite increase in performance. Slight to no mileage improvement

AF1 3" tube. Went with the 3" tube because it doesn't require custom tuning (although I do have custom tuning). I can return my truck back to the stock tune for trips to the dealership without having to change out my intake. Haven't had the truck dyno'd, but I can certainly tell you this thing made a huge difference in terms of throttle response and drivability. Just made it alot of fun to drive the truck.
