the main diffrence will be looks.

the stock stuff with a k&n filter is plenty for most bolt-on apps.

If you do go with an aftermarket intake (elbow basically) go with a K&N, JLT or I think Air-raid I think. Its one that Casper has, his engine bay looks soooooo sexy.

I think their good for power, but your best bet would be to do midpipe, cold air intake, throttle body upper plenum and get a dyno tune. To get the full potential out of it.

Any difference you feel is just in your head. The rpm may jump faster and it may sound a little deeper, but as far as adding any substantial power, your money is best spent elsewhere.

Idk, I put on a K&N FIPK cold air intake, and it felt better. I dont think its in your head, every car responds differently to bolt ons. Cold air intakes arent a waste of money, they do free up some power (more so the pvc ones) they flow better then the stock.

Besides the blower, the thing I noticed alot more power from, was the o/r mid pipe. It felt a lot better. Then when I took it off for emissions, the car felt a lot slower.
