Default Cold Air Intakes

Okay guys i'm still new to upgrading my truck so heres my questions. I'm looking at buying a cai but i'm not sure what kind to get, the only two i've really heard anything about are k and n and volant. I like the idea with volant where it has a ram air tube for it, but it would have to replace my fog light and i want to keep them. Give me your thoughts and opinions on them.
Thanks, Trevor

Do you have the ram air attachment on it, or do you just have the closed box with the stub piece on it?

I have no complaints about my K&N CAI. No ram air to speak of, but it was all easy enough to install.

My old one was a lightweight CF cai so my current one is a tad on the hefty side but i love my BFI.
