eBay CAIs

I see CAIs like this one a lot. I'm assuming these are crap, but what makes them different from good ones like AEM, etc?

cheap construction, poor materials.

There is a reason the AEM and Injen ones are expensive. You get what yu pay for with car stuff wink

they've got a bunch of other cheap stuff at the bottom like exhaust, headers, etc. wow, can you imagine if prices were really like that? i could've gotten a cat back exhaust, new headers, Intake, reverse gauges, and a "JDM shifter" all for less than my AEM. thumbsup
