6637 all the way. I had a banks ram air "best cai on the market" and then switched to the 6637. And I love it. Wish I did it sooner.

Why did you switch. Did you just change the filter or the setup

I changed the whole setup. I used a 4" down pipe I had laying around. And ordered the filter off of riffraff. I changed it cuz when I accelerated it felt so sluggish. Then when I changed it was a whole new beast. Plus I did the zoodad mod. Real big difference. It's worth doing. Plus it's cheap as sh**

They are supposed to be good, I have had one on my 00 for 5 years but it failed recently. My guess is the sock I had on it clogged but it didn't look that bad. The one I am running is a stage II with the PG7 oiled filter. I may eventually replace it with a dry filter.

6637 is great. Price and performance are both right on par. But the best filter available is the AIS.

What they said. I have the stage I with no probs. From what I have read and read and read on here prior, there is no real huge significant benefit to the stage II. I clean it every oil change and check it every fill up. I believe K&N is the only filter you have to worry about when it comes to dusting. I won't switch because I already spent the money on a good filter, switching to the 6637 defeats the purpose of going cheap. If I could do it over again, I would go with the cheaper. Plus having that big a$$ filter just looks cool

AFE is fine on these... a step above a 6637.
