Best drop in free flowing filters

Any recommendations welcome on drop in free flowing filters?

Looking at a sealed intake option and not a fan of the BMS intakes due to engine bay hot air getting in.

Or do I just go drop in filters?

Go full cold air intake or AFE pro dry drop in filters and remove the charcoal filters

Iím selling K&N drop in filters. I used them for 2 months, but decided to replace my whole intake system. PM me if interested.

I like the AFE Cold Intake system. May go the charcoal removal and drop in for now.

Many thanks

The AFE cold intake is pretty much the same as the stock intake boxes without the charcoal filters and drop in filters. Unless you put the filters up front you wont get the sound. In the end someone made something like 800whp on the stock air boxes with drop in filters so it's really just about sound more than performance with the cold air intakes.
