When deciding between intakes your really not going to see much differance between them. I mean woo 1-2 hp... I bought a ram air intake off ebay and it worked great for me. Im S/C now but it was the best $20 i ever spent.
Btw, for CAI and Ram airs you really dont need a brand name part... if you really think about it your buying a bent peice of pipe.
Now everything else i buy is BBK or some other brand name.
^^ Not true. There is flow testing that goes into these things. There is a reason they charge as much as they do. If they could put their name on a $20 piece of **** and sell it they would. But they are not willing to put their name on a piece of trash.
Also, ram airs are not the same as CAI. The ram air is just a non restricted version of the stock intake. its still pulling 200+ degree air from your engine bay. CAI actually take air from outside your engine bay, thus giving lower input temps and better flow.
