As far as true cold air intakes are concerned, K&N doesnt have one. Your choices are pretty much the S&B, Volant, and stock air box. If you want the best performance, I hear from experienced users here that Vararam is the top choice, albeit the most expensive. I just sold my Volant and instead use the stock box with a drop in K&N filter. I have no dyno or track results to prove any of this but it feels and seems to get the same performance and is much cheaper. Hope this helps.
A work in progress....K&N Drop in Air Filter, Magnaflow Y-pipe(#10778), Magnaflow Muffler(#12579), Superchips tuned, 180 T-stat(#4128)
