You can get a stock replacement filter that just slips into the stock air filter box, or get a new intake altogether. That all depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend...

If you decide to get a stock replacement, then K&N, TOM's and TRD make them.
There are many intakes you can get, do a search and you will find a world of information on it here...

Good luck.

I like mine. I'm not big on aftermarket intakes. Mostly the idea of being able to clean it is good enough.

I will say get K&N, I had a HKS one and you can really feel the difference, yes it has some better noise.

I've got the Tom's filter in my stock box. Have not been able to tell even a hint of a difference from stock air filter. No difference in noise either. IF there is a gain, it is very minimal.

My guess is that the intake 'systems' offer more noticable hp gains, but some are very noisey. Considering changing to one of those systems, really would like more power off the line. But what I am discovering is that most gains are made at the 'top end' and it feels like a loss in torque on the low end. But above 90 mph, the car keeps pulling hard. No one likes to bring the loss of low end power, because it will hurt their sales. That unfortunately is noticable.

If it's just the stock replacement air filter it wont, but if your talking about the K&N Typhoon Intake System it still won't effect your warranty
