1998 Legacy Outback

Default Cold Air Intake or K&N filter?

I have a 98 outback and the air filter on it needs replaced. I would like to replace it with either a K&N replacement filter, or a cold air intake and I was just wondering which would be better. Before this car I had a 97 legacy and I bought a rallitek cold air intake for it which sounded great, i really enjoyed it. However in the summer when you would floor it, the engine would not shut off but it was like it was stalling, yet the car was an automatic, I assume it was sucking in too much hot air. I would like to go a cold air intake for performance, looks, sound etc. but I would rather have something that doesn't have negative affects on my car. If anyone could tell me anything about which would be better that would be great. Thank you so much. Also how hard is it to change a CV boot? Thanks.

If you like the sound.... get an intake. I like my cobb, but it's pretty loud.
