I was wondering this as well. BMP Designs High Flow Racing Intak seams more thought out and well created, but I don't know if it would have any benefits over a EBAY one.

I myself am in love with BMP Design, so Id rather spend the 120 dollars at BMP vs the 20 on ebay, even if they gave the same performance. Im a junky for BMP hehe =)

intakes dont make a difference on our cars even with heat shield ur best bet is to go get a k & n and keep the air box intakes give us nothing but sound i've tried it and i went back to k&n with stock air box

Stock air box w/K&N. Custom CAI!!

K&N cone filters rated @ 8-900 cfm
K&N flat filters rated @ 450 cfm

What I did ensures constant cold air plus at speeds over 70mph = 1+ psi ram into the intake.

Lots of diff opinions on what works best.....I like my setup seems to work just fine.
$45.00 for the filter.
$15.00 for the CAI parts (Home Depot).

Keep the intake away from the tarmack...road surface temps can get up to 140? but this will depend on where you live and sesonal changes.
Plus going through the high beam was WAY TOO EASY...and the air flow is direct with very slight bending of the tubing. Almost a straight shot into the Air Box.

Those brake cooling ducts on the valence can be made more effective by replacing the stock tubes with some flexible hose and directing the air flow to blow at the base of the rotors. This is a future project for me. I'll post when completed.

There is no power, it's a waste of time. You would have to go WELL over 100 MPH to even gain a fraction of a psi. Also, I wouldn't reccomend making your "CAI" down by your foglight, unless of course you want to hydrolock your engine.

Have to disagree with "well over 100"...@ 70mph the psi is at 1 and will climb from there...not much...but you will get increased / rammed air into the intake. And at speeds above 70 I do feel the diference.

As far as HP gains....its not much at all....the biggest restriction is the AFM. Up grade to Big Six AFM and you WILL feel the HP.

On my car I just removed the HiBeam bulb. And went to the Home Depot.

Plumbing Section:

1- 3" to 4" flexible reducer
1- short piece of 4" ABS pipe (I found some straight fitting Piece ..sorry don't remember what to call it)
1 Sqare Foot of 1/4" x 1/4" wire mesh (at the garden center)
1- lenght of 3" flexible ducting (Heating and AC section)


You should be able to figure it out from here...if not let me know and I will post some pics and better instructions.

It is really easy and nothing is bolted or strapped in!!
