i know that the filters from ebay are crappy and all but i got my cold air intake a long time ago from american muscle, its a blue one, anyone know if K&N is still better or do they both have same flow rate?

not sure. they have the basic same composition (same materials, blueprinting it seems like). i would go with k&n conical filter replacement from an autoparts store just for the convenience factor.

i am just running the basic filter that came with my bomz racing intake off of ebay. With my mods i didnt feel like it would make a big difference to go by a $50 filter

The blue filter and the k&n are almost exactly the same. the K&N may flow a very very very little bit better. Certainly not worth replacing the filter that you have. Just use a recharge kit on the one you've got and you're good to go.
