you will see a minor difference its mainly for looks tho, and the ebay cais are basically just as good as macs accept in mac you are paying for the name, we have a thread on this that explains it well i will try and find it.

I just won an auction for a k & n filter and liveonspeed chrome tubing. I expect to receive it on Thursday and will use your how to install guide to help myself out. This will be my first engine mod...really excited. Thanks.

As soon as Brent uploads the new CAI Article, it will cover what problems come inherent of a eBay CAI.

And since K8 lives in California, K8 should know that the ebay CAI's arent california smog complient. They do not have the carb number needed. so K8 will probably have to either buy a MAC CAI, or take out the ebay one and throw the stock indtuction back in when it comes time to smog the car.

WTF?!? Ebay CAIs are California smog complient? I'm also in CA, but am registered in TX. What does that mean besides that it won't pass the smog? Will my car smell bad? Is it noticeable w/o checking it w/ a machine?

some people send stickers with them, like a mac cai i believe comes with a sticker or is supposed to anyways, with that sticker you would be all set
