I'm curious I've been lookin around and doing my research is there really any difference to the CAI's other than the filters. Most of them all have aluminum piping so what makes one really better than the other. I have the money to spend, but I don't see what makes one better than another. Someone please help me.

The bend on the piping and the diameter of the pipe make all the difference that is why one intake will make more/less power then another. I currently am running AEM with AEM dry filter on my car and Injen with AEM dry filter on my wifes car. I think the AEM made a little more torque but the Injen made a little more HP. This is just an estimate since I have not actually dyno'ed either car yet. Just going by the way it feels.

Ebay cai is the same design as the injen, and it is just as good, just make sure to get a k&n filter with it because i dont trust the ricer filter. 2 years and its still good. Love it.

ITs the best value and had not thrown a cel

Or you can get the AEM dry filter and never have to worry about the filter oil getting on your MAF sensor... :)

I had read that link prior to posting and was just double checking. I appreciate the help just one more thing to make sure I have thing right before I buy. Do i need a new MAF when I change intakes. I've read some posts on other sites that it doesn't need to be replaced.
