Cold Air Intakes, AirAid or K&N?
I'm planning to get a cold air intake on my 2013 Dodge Durango 5.7 . and I have 2 options AirAid and K&N. the AirAid comes as filter and it's box without the silicon tube which is not a complete cold air intake kit and generates 16 hp (expected 12 hp) and K&N comes as a complete kit filter, box and silicon tube, generates 17 hp (expected 13 hp). I've tried both filters before, K&N on my old '04 GMC Suburban 5.3 and AirAid on my old '09 Tahoe 5.3 . the major difference was the AirAid sounded better (due to the larger filter size) and the performance was about the same for both filters. but both of em were complete air intake kits. for the Durango, I wouldn't hesitate to go for the AirAid if it was a complete kit. both of em retails about the same. so did anybody try those filters on the 3rd gen Durangos 5.7? any recommendations? they fit Grand Cherokees as well so Jeep owners are welcomed to contribute in this thread (if we're lucky enough to have them browsing this forum section).
