My first intake was an Injen, similar in design to the steeda or BBK but polished and had a small cone filter. It was nice but i didnt feel a whole lot of power once i did a couple WOT pulls on the freeway and it was real boggy down low and in the mid range. then I decided to go with everyone's favorite the Airaid. Got it off someone who had it for less than 500 miles before losing their car. It was a PITA to install and gave me similar power as the Injen but a little more consistently. I don't think the heat shields really work all that well on those things cause it too would bog on me after 10-15 of driving. Mid range was little better than the Injen and I could drop into 4th and feel it a little more than the Injen. Now I was getting tunes swapped out on both and did a KAM reset every time I changed my intakes to compare.drove each a little over 3 weeks. Injen I had for 4 months Airaid for 2. Just didn't like how much low end I lost with them. Swapped it back to stock and saw a noticeable difference in low end. Top end felt flat but from a dead stop I was much happier.
Anyway, after a little over a year I have been seeing some new member adding intakes and tunes and from what they say they notice a huge improvement over just the stock intake with a tune.
So I thought I'd give it another shot (plus I miss the sound they gave off. Nice little gurgle.) I just refuse to buy new again and spend over $150 for plastic piping a filter and a hose.
