WEAPON R (SRI) or K&N Typhoon(SRI)???

hey guys! Second post now! hehe....now that i know that my cobalt is a 2.2L (LT model)...i was thinking of an intake. Im going to pop the hood and see if i have SAI (hopefully not). from i've read, the SRI give more boost when u first accelerate(correct me if i am wrong). The the weapon r seems to give the most boost on hp than the K&N. Lastly, I am very picky about the sound...i don't want it too deep nor high. I know there's a whole thread of this but i just want to do some more research.

The options i have came across are the K&N Typhoon (SRI) or the weapon R (SRI).

whats your opinion?

would this 2.4L one fit my car?
