Default 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).

another question. some say: every vehicle with an airintake has to be tuned. cause due to the larger amount of air gained from the airintake the throttle body response and it's opening size has to be calibrated to the new airintake over stock calibration. otherwise you'll end up loosing high speed but gaining horsepower. unlike if you'd have the vehicle tuned up. then you'll gain both high speed and horsepower. on my old 2 vehicles I didn't loose anything cause both of em were tuned. and this time I don't wanna tune my Durango. experts, opinions please.

was the first place I've searched in. but when I ran out the search for: gas, 2013, Dodge, Durango, 5.7 nothing came out but the rectangular filter. no CAIs.

also I prefer wet filters cause based on what I've heard they last longer than the dry ones and they can be cleaned all the time with a cleaner kit of course unlike the dry ones (which I didn't try before) the dry filter can't be cleaned and has to be changed from time to time.

why did you recommend the AFE? cause of the sound or horsepower?

quality of kit is very important, fit n finish and the overall design. The dry is simple washed off and allowed to dry. I fell oil type are a possible cause for issues at dealer. Excess oil on the filter can be an issue.

good to know. ok, what application did you use? Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7? as long as I didn't find any for my Durango. if yes was it a direct fit or did you do any customization?

did you tune up your Dueango after getting the CAI? if not. did you notice any increase in the power?

Dubking, Its the same one as the 2011-2013 Jeep. Most I see do list it as fitting the Durango. It is even designed to use the factory air scoop.

Another vote for AFE dry. Just put drop in AFE dry in my Charger RT too.
