Best K&N air filter?

So I have an 08 and I am looking on K&N's site and they offer 3 different systems for my year.

-FIPK Cold Air Intake

-Aircharger Cold Air Intake

-77 Series Cold Air Intake

The 77 is the most expensive, but I think that is because it has a chrome sleeve. I am not one for asthetics under the hood, also the FIPK and the Aircharger both increase 11.25 HP @ 4800 RPM and gthe 77 increases 10.01 HP @ 4800 RPM.

So what do you guys think?

I had the FIPK on my 95 ZJ. I was really pleased with it. I haven't put one on my KK yet but that's the plan

The best one is the stock airbox and a good paper filter.The stock setup is a cold air intake already,those K&N systems are actually hot air intakes.


K&N's just allow more dirt to enter the engine.There made for racing which do not require longevity.

tommudd, what about setups with aftermarket round filters to enable a custom Snorkel? ARB doesn't seem to be getting around to finishing thiers (It was to be done soon back in 2010!) so it looks like it's black PVC pipe and some cutting tools for those of us that want a snorkel on our KK. But what to do about the filter setup?
