Get neither. Drop in performance filter replacement gets you the best bang for buck. The stock air intake is not a bottleneck.

Like everyone said, just get a drop in. Save the money for something else

a drop in panel filter will be the most efficient use of money here. if you need to get an aftermarket intake, go with coldair, as short rams will be subject to heatsoak.
