The roaring sound is rather annoying.
I will state my opinion, which I've stated numerous times, one last time.
Drop a green filter in your stock airbox and get the 5-8 hp increase without spending 200-300 dollars and wasting the time on the installation. You will see the same increase in power as you will from a cai with a difference of possibly 2 hp. Most dyno tests I've seen put them virtually even. When comparing a cone style intake(not cai) to a drop in filter the drop is produced better results.
If you're willing to spend a few hundred on a "good looking pipe" rather than dropping in a $40.00 filter that will give you %99 of the same results with less hassle, than go for it.*

Most cheap cai are made out of heat conducting material, rather than heat resistant.
What is the typhoon made out of and please show me a link to the page where it says it is $50.00.
Also, where does the cai exit the engine bay to take in it's cold air? Thanks.
