most intakes yeild similar gains. Your best bet is to find the cheapest one and slap a K&N filter on it. Another alternative is to make one yourself.

I think they're K&Ns intake or something, atleast if it's a real Tyfoon.
Basically for the extra money you're paying for materials (carbon fiber, aluminum) and fit. The cheaper intakes probably won't fit as nicely as the Dinan one will.
As for the quality, it's pretty tough to mess up bending a piece of aluminum pipe. Most of the time it's just the thickness of tubing that affects the price. If you get a carbon fiber one then there's a difference between cheap and expensive, sometimes.
IMO go with the cheapest intake you can find on ebay, and slap a K&N on there, just like Presidente said.
