K&N Drop In Filter vs. CAI 2013

I have a 2103 with 40k miles.

Has anyone noticed an increase in performance or better MPG with the drop in K&N air filter?

I also was looking for CAI options for a 2013 and could not find anything decent. Seems like older gens have options but not much for the 2013. Any recommendations?

You don't get too much of a noticeable performance increase with drop-in filters anymore, IMO. Factory designers have maximized and tuned the intake airflow already.

There is also a risk of damaging the sensors in the intake if you ever over-oil the K&N.

If it's induction noise you seek, eliminating the 'silencer' incorporated into the air tract (Hans471+ will remind me the name of that resonator) will make it louder...
Not so much noise, but if that's a side effect, I'll take it. I'm really looking to increase performance and mpg.
