Sounds from different CAI's

I decided to wait on the exhaust and go with a CAI for now. I've listened to some youtube videos and I'm amazed by the sound difference from adding one of these. That's the sound I'm going for!

The problem is...there's many choices for cai's (e.g., k & n, Ram air, injec, etc). Is there a difference in the sound output from these, or do they generally produce the same sound?

thanks,

I wouldn't worry about the sound any given cold air kit makes. The effectiveness of keeping the high engine bay temps out of the intake air is what's important.

You'll pretty much get the same sound from all of them. The sound comes from removing all of the sound deafening baffles and restrictions from the stock system

just buy whatever one you think looks best, I went with the BBK, it was chrome & the price was good. Fitment was a little tricky but it went in with some elbow grease.

2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.
