Why don't you just take that trash off your car and put the stock airbox back on...

You can buy Performance from e-Bay w/o any problems just/// DO NOT BUY "NO NAME" TRASH//// wave
P.S. I have my KYB AGX FROM E-bay and I'm more than happy with it.

Highly recommended not to purchase items like that from ebay. Chances are though, is that your maf sensor got dirty.

watch out for no name brands. there are things that can go with knock-off/replicas: problems. other than that, ebay can be good. you just have to be wary about what you buy.
