    Yeah, I noticed in some pics that the filter sizes are quite significant. I think some people buy the AEM intake and get a filter that's bigger around don't they? I'm not sure if it equates to more CFM or not though.

    You won't get a bigger filter on for the AEM. Part of the filter is already touching the fender liner. I'm sure it provides plenty enough air for the size of the intake pipe and stock turbo inlet.

    Size of the filter itself means squat unless the engine is trying to suck in more air than the filter can actually flow. And since that would require insane amounts of power, for 99% of us, the size means nothing

    To the OP, I have the Cobb Intake and I love it. Nice sound, looks very clean in the engine bay, and a well made unit. Definitely noticed better throttle response, better low-midrange torque, and a bit more top end HP. Also running Erics TP Stage 2 with a catless downpipe.

    I have the K&N typhoon. I love the sound and I feel a big differance in throttle response. No difference in gas milage. Would buy it again. And my car is stage 1 tuned spesifficly for the kn filter

    I run the Perrin CAI. I did notice a slight difference but nothing major. It always just made sense to me to run this mod to match up with the TBE from Perrin. I run a CAI in my 2011 Dodge Ram Hemi as well and that to me is more noticeable. 2 different worlds there though.
