plastic IMO.

here is the break down.

plastic takes longer to heat up and cool down.
metal takes less time to heat up and cool down.

it's your choice which evil you wish to pick :)

Check ebay for a CAI, I picked one up for my buddy for $30 and it was polished aluminum with silicone couplings, decent filter, not bad at all.

I had a cheap moroso fenderwell kit...probably still have it somewhere and it was plastic. I also have a aluminum one in my basement.
