CAI - Mopar, K+N or or Other ?

Hey all - I put a "build-my-own" CAI in my charger 3.5L looking to put a cold air intake on my Challenger SE

would you go with this

Chrysler 300 3.5L Mopar Performance Cold Air Intake


or

eBay Motors: Airaid Air Intake 09 2009 Dodge Challenger 3.5L V6 (item 390021363344 end time Feb-01-09 21:20:09 PST)

or

The K+N K & N 63 Air Intake System Performance Intakes KN

or other ?

what and why ?

I have the K&N set up and it fits great, looks good, and sounds good as well. your choice though, I found the K/N was the only intake available to me and I've had K/N 's in all my vehicles.

Thumbs up Re: CAI - Mopar, K+N or or Other ?

I put a C&L Performance CAI in my SRT. It looked good, sounded good and is ready for a bigger throttle body.

Re: CAI - Mopar, K+N or or Other ?

I dont think that mopar one will fit unless the picture is wrong. I think there is a difference between the 3.5L and the 3.5 L HO which is what we have

Re: CAI - Mopar, K+N or or Other ?

I also have the K+N 63 series intake. It sounds and looks great and there is also a noticeable gain in hp/tq. The filter itself is pretty large, with plenty of surface area and the install was pretty simple and doesn't take long at all. I got a pretty good deal on mine from HHP. Usually $321 online, got mine on sale at HHP for $267. Not sure how long the sale is/was though.

Aren't all the 3.5L engines HO's? the other V6 (charger/300) is a 2.7L (why do they even offer this)

I think they are two different engines. Look at the picture on the link he provided...it's a totally different engine with no "HO" embossed like on ours

Hey fellow Canuck.

Do you happen to have a picture of your K&N installed? How does it look? I'm also debating on which kind of CAI to use.
