2nd gen is better.

i think fitment issues where corrected and performance was improved. also maybe the chances of getting CELs slimmed down thumbsup

but its always better to get the updated version of anything (most anything) thumbsup

always better to go the diy route...haha unless you have no clue what you're doing of course thumbsup

we did an SRI (even easier than CAI) on one of my buddy's car a couple of weeks ago..everything went super-smooth and no problems. used Injen for the SRI.
