Legmakers are one of the better or best ones out there. You can get one of the fenderwell intake to get the most of an intake. The SRT intake flows pretty well with a K&N drop in for a 5.7. For the 6.1 the mopar CAI are pretty good. But that fenderwell intake from Legmaker well give you the better feel and performance. Really just depends on how much you want to spend and what you like really when it comes down to it.

most cold air intakes will add roughly 8-12 bhp to the engines by allowing for cooler, less restricted air to enter the intake, allowing for better performance. By all means you should get yourself one. I havent heard of Legmaker, however, if you read through some of the Cold Air intakes (CAI for short) threads on this forum you should find a link to a thread on the LX forums where a guy actually tested all the most popular intakes on a dyno.

So do I, they have never done me wrong..... but there are better options. Until we (other prototype recipients) get the new intake from R2C, I'll still run my Daytona + SRT hybrid intake with a K&N drop in. I like it for what it does.

I can't wait to get it! The filter on that intake was HUGE! They put a lot of thought into it. Can't wait for the dyno numbers as well. Has anyone looked at or picked up the one they have available for the 3.5 V6.

You could get a replacement one from R2C, some guys on LX did that or at least Rev.Hammer was offering it to people with the R2C filter.
Here's a post he did a year ago but explains some benefits:

.....kay bit far, but yeah almost every car that I've had has had a K&N filter. My 92 Cougar, 01 Impala and the Mag. I've recommend them to everyone too. And when I finally junked the Impala I gave the K&N filter I had in there to my Grandfather for his 96 88 3.8. Fit fine in the stock air box, he complained later that the throttle was touchy and he was flying around now, but I think thats just cause his old filter was dirty and the car wasn't used to that. They are proven power and reliability. But it's just a better air filter / intake over stock.

Allright I was looking about a year ago for a cold air intake I know every one say its a big big differance and from my own experance it is I could not belive how much it improved my preformance of my car and it make it sound mean to. K & N is no dought good but they just look so so plain and there no way you can customize it at all but I bought ARIA and painted it green my car is sublime with a sublime green filter and it looks so so mean the guys there can paint what ever color you want and give you what ever filter color you want to. now these or custom made pieces so it takes alittle time to have them made but I think its well well worth it. http://airflowinnovationscorp.com/intakes

Aria is a great intake. I'm on my second one. Started with the metal one and then traded up to the composite. The new one is feather light compared to the original. A lot of LX'ers with these intakes.
