Triple Weber 42 DCOE) Air Filter Choice Assistance

1. Individual K&N Filters (already have these so it's the easiest for me ... just need to get a heat shield)
2. Air horn socks / covers. These appear to be simple metal mesh filters. Honestly these look 'cool' and would really show off the air horns.
3. Single large air filter assembly with integrated heat shield (about $200 + cost of air filter ... likely $300 total).
4. Other exotic 'cold air boxes', carbon filter, etc. These seems to be more applicable to racing than something for the street.
I'm currently leaning towards the K&N, but that leaves me with a need for a decent heat shield over my ceramic coated headers. I saw a link for a JDM shield (stainless steel I believe) that was in the $150 range. Seems like something I could fabricate for far less.

I would suggest what filters the air the most efficiently to keep your engine as happy as possible.

The JDM SS heat shield is a very piece for the price and I'm likely to get one myself if it's not under the tree this Christmas.
I have the ITG large single filter if you like to buy it....

So I switch to 3 K&N filters. I haven't felt any difference by changing the filters and it is more practical. I think also it looks good.
