a no brand? I would never do that...do not take the chance. you have no idea if it will fit and it probably sucks man. Just get a Injen or AEM shortram, they are cheaper then the CAI.

I would go with a better/ more expensive brand. In the long run it will most likely be better quality. Also, most well known brands have a guarantee on their parts. You can never be to careful so I suggest you spend more for a quality part.

I have a few friends that have bought the "no name" brand Intake. 2 of them were perfectly happy with the Intake (but 1 of them recently bought a Injen). Another one's broke, literally cracked in 1/2. I believe they all paid $60 for that Intake, I personally wouldn't put it in my car...

I have that no-name Intake from ebay. grin

I just put a breather on it and now my tires break loose like crazy when I land lift 1-2.
But I'll prolly get an AEM soon. I need that CARB exempt sticker, in case a pig tries to ticket me for the Intake.
