Help me choose a filter!

I'm planning on doing a custom CAI within the next couple weeks. I'm about to order a cone filter, but I can't decide which filter to order. Does anyone have any experience with these filters, or....which one would you get?

1)
K&N RU-5111
Outlet Flange: 3"
Bottom Diameter: 4.5"
Length: 5.75"
Price: $30.03

2)
K&N RE-0930
Outlet Flange: 3"
Bottom Diameter: 6"
Length: 6"
Price: $46.67

Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks guys.

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
Probably either one will work. K&N uses the RC-4690 in their own CAI. It's about the same diameter, but almost 8" long. They also have a GenII CAI. The only difference I see with it is a shorter, oval tapered filter. I would guess it's better to go with the larger filter, if money and fitment is not a problem.
