I 've seen lots that indicate that althought he cone open setup gives you better flow - the fact that you are sucking hot air negates the gains -CAI gives you best of both. I have been considering the same mod - for right now I just did KN in stock airbox with the intake baffle removed. Everthing else stock - not sure on the performance gain but the sound difference is great...

Is there a big difference in power between a cold air intake and a regular KN setup like the one made by Kirban? I have heard people say that the KN is not as good because it sucks in hot air which does not give as much power as a CAI.

Thanks in advance.
