    differences? almost nothing really. in fact there's debate whether or not the K&N drop in filter is any different than a CAI.,

    Agreed. For our sixers, any CAI will do the job - just make sure it has a good filter on the end.

    Any difference?

    - Brand Name.
    - Slightly different appearence
    - A BBK/MAC/K&N brand CAI will come with an emissions code that some states require. If you don't have this number and are in a state that does emissions checks you will get into some sort of trouble. Nothing serious, possibly just a fix-it ticket. I don't know if Mustang Tuning gives out these codes with theirs or not. I know ebay CAIs don't.
    - Price

    Those are basically the only differences.
