Default Best CAI/Tune?

Of all the CAI/Tune combos out there does anyone have a personal preference towards a certain brand(s) just curious to read any testimonies towards all the different manufacturers.

i like the JLT bc
1. its cheap
2. easy to install, 15 minutes
3. good performance around 25-28 rwhp

I'd go with C&L Racer. There was a site that did a comparison and found that the JLTII produced the most power, but the C&L STREET was a close second. I am assuming the C&L Racer actually produces as much or more power than the JLTII since it is quite a bit bigger than either the C&L Street or JLTII.

C&L Street: 83mm
JLTII: 89mm
C&L Racer: 95mm

The quality of the C&L Setup seems better too.

Any of them will be fine. I have the JLT and its certainly not low quality. It works. /shrug

i have the Demolet Tuneable Induction intake and tune from Branspeed. love it. it's the same size and shape as the JLT, but seems to have a little bit larger filter. i chose it over the JLT because of the Carbon Fiber finish... $15 more than the JLT and it puts up equal or slightly larger gains and looks bad ***. i get complements all the time on it. sometimes i wish i would have tried the C&L Racer, but i love what i got, so i don't know. i'd go with one of the 2 though... Racer or Demolet. the Racer has a bigger MAF (95mm vs 89mm), but costs $30 more. that isn't that big of a deal though when you're talking about a $550+ mod.

They're all equivalent in performance. The tune is the real meat of the two. Brenspeed, Bama and VMP provide excellent tunes. The rest has to do with your wallet and your eyes.

I have the Steeda CAI and an X3 tuned from Brenspeed. The combo ROCKS!
