What's your take on intakes?
Is spending 250 on a AEM CAI worth it? Or do 40 dollar off brand products do the same thing?

A lot of people I know have Injen, grcelica is one of them and has no complaints. It has done wonders on his GT Auto. You could definatly tell a difference between before and after.

And as stated, You get what you pay for.
thats like saying 'should i get a $200 hooker? or a $40 look a like celeb transvestite...they look the same...but do they really perform the same? tongue

Love my Injen. Easy to install(fairly), looks good, sounds great, and it came with everything needed, and the gains were more than I had hoped for. Never heard any negative about AEM tho... again you do get what you pay for..words to live by. thumbsup

if u're cheap like me then get a $50.00 one off of eBay that look just like this:
http://www.i-m-racing.com/celgtscolair.html

read the info on the right side, 12-13hp is fault. No Intake can give you that much. you get as much as 1-3 most with any Intake. Easy to install, sound pretty. Only get it if you're cheap like me. Like people say, "you get what you pay for"..So good luck.

cuz his Intake got a hole size of a quarter on it. one off the hinges broke off and he couldn't contact Injen after many many trieds. So that's y. But that's just his story, other people have them and they don't have problem. Oh yeah, there are also other people who have the same problem like his too. so, if you buy it and it happen to you then good luck but if nothing happen to your then not a problem. Only one way to find out, "buy it" and see. Make sure you can contact them in the future to get replacement or refund. etc...

dont buy ebay Intakes...12-13 hp?!?! come one. if you know even a tiny bit about modifying cars you know no such Intake can give you that much. get AEM or Injen. name brand is always better!

ebay has nothing to do with Intakes. off-brand Intakes are commonly sold on ebay but so are rmm, Injen, and AEM Intakes. look for BRANDS, just because something is sold on e-bay doesnt mean it's bad.

sheesh.
