You may not get that cool exhaust note.
But that extra 25-100+ dollars can be used to by that chip you've been wanting.
So the velocity stack created by the stock air box is better than a cold air intake. Got it.

How about the non CAI knn filter ? The one that goes right in the stock air box instead of the stock paper filter ? Would it lead to HP gains ? Is the oiling really necessary ?
