K&N makes a good open filter design. If you want a CAI with a closed filter box, check out the Volant systems. I have one on my truck (5.2L) and I have improved throttle response, power and a little induction noise.

I also have a Volant on my 300C SRT8 and used them on two other vehicles prior to owning the Chrysler.

i personally like airaid intake systems. they actually make a few different designs, all that give a better hp and torque boost than k&n, dont really know much about the volants though. you could go with the quickfit which is a whole system, tube, filter, and you take off the top of the factory box and add the heat shield that seals when the hood is closed. they make a full CAI system that comes with the new bottom portion of the box as well for a better designed cold air flow to the system, and they also make factory replacement air filters, and just the tube that connects to your factory box as well. i have the quick fit system, most bang for the buck in my opinion. hope that helped!
