Since nobody responded last time, here I am again...

Does Carbon Fiber really make that much difference for a Cold Air Intake? BenFer has 2, one aluminum and one carbon fiber and the difference is $50. Is it worth it?

probably not. You are probably paying for the looks of the carbon fiber. thats my opinion. maybe someone else knows better :driving

You are mostly paying for the look. I understand that they are identical in design. The Carbon Fiber might keep the air a little cooler and be a few ounces lighter but they should perform the same.

i hear that having carbon fiber will transfer much less heat compared to standard steel tubes. however, i believe it is mainly for the looks. personally, i do not like the carbon fiber look, but that's just me.
