Hi there, i'm a newbie here :p ! i am thinking about getting one of these cold air induction kits but i am unsure of which to get. From the induction kit poll i can see these two are both popular. Which could i expect more HP gain from? does the K&N a louder more aggressive sound?

thanks alot

go the K&N route :D
I removed the Hamann foam filter (it aint the one they show on their site, which looks like a cotton filter of some sort) yesterday and what I find is that I've got dust on the clean side :eek:
the throttle body was filthy at the side of the butterfly too... had to clean it.
when I change back to stock the only filter going in there is the OEM filter.

Could be that the Hamann filter sucked :confused:
I don't know really.

its your preference :)
and welcome aboard

like to hear it, RedUn.
i'm in the same boat, K&N, or pipercross.
don't really want to mess with my warranty, but the standart filter sound is terrible.

Try the BMC CDA - if you want more performance, louder induction roar and more money in your pocket!

The viper does sound quite nice though! :)
