r2c? not a very famous brand. Especially that filter design is plain horrible. You will be sucking in dirt along with air.

Some brands for you to consider:

1. AEM Brute Force
2. aFe Stage II ProDry
3. Mopar
4. K&N
5. LMI fender mount

They all perform about the same, except the fender mount ones. The ones with heat-shield are better as well. Get a dry filter if you can since it will a lot easier to clean.

The rest is up to your preference. Purely cosmetic choices.

And of course you can built one yourself. Cost way less

By itself CAI don't really offer much, it's all about paring mods up together! Grab a tuner and dual exhaust and that'll give you a good base for bigger modifications.

Imo...CAI is a waste of money, the factory air box will flow to 900cfm and with a small piece of pipe you can extend it into the fender where it will actually pull in cold air. Insulate the box with reflectix insulation and now you have something. My best ET's and trap times at the track came with the stock box not a CAI, something to think about

Reflectix eh? Never would have thought of that. Which version did you use? The single or double reflective? You put it inside or outside? Outside would be most ideal, but it would look cheap. Got any pics of yours?
