Both are really good intakes, but from what I hear is that Wizaired is probably the best out there. Really you couldn't do wrong with either one of them

IMO the wizaired intake is the uglest thing i have seen on a car i am note a fan of it at all. My friend with a GP GT just got one and it is a very large silver box that takes the place of your former air box. i would say go with the k&n intake over the wizaired one. thats just me though.

I agree with Mike. Do what performs better.
And what PERFORMS better? The Wizaired. The Wizaired has proven test results that they get a colder charge.

They USE the K&N 9" filter cone, so you're getting the benefits of the filter, but you're getting the protection that the wizaired comes with. I,E. you aren't sucking in the hot air like the K&N one does...

I have the Wizaired and one of the reasons I went with it was that in an earlier post I read that someone installed a K&N and then installed a cover, after the fact.
Wizaired is covers, as well as insulation and the Temperature sensor is installed in the box vice in the intake tube that is running over the exhaust crossover.

I'm a huge fan of K&N but I really wanted the complete kit.

Both are proven to make power. The Wizarid by a little more I would say. But K&N does make the numbers too. Also with K&N your going to hear it a little more. Going to be louder and sound pretty badass.
