wow...


no name brand
-might not be as good
-not a reputable Intake
-cheap

name brand
-guaranteed to be good (kinda)
-comes with a warantee
-a bit more expensive
-you wont have to worry about your Intake killing your engine somehow

Usually better gains and better fitment with name brands. Satisfaction of knowing your Intake should last longer than a non-name brand.

its hard to tell sometimes, if you should go cheap or not. theres only one way to find out. some companies just sell the product cheap. rice

I don't understand...
think of it as you comparing a Toyota vehicle with a car someone built...which do you think is going to run better?
exactly. Toyota.
Name brand...this is common sense.

hehehe shouldn't be too hard! rofl

anyway, name brands are gonna be better more often than not. It'll fit better, you'll get instructions, and most likely a waranty thumbsup

Well, an Intake is just a tube that allow air to flow through... I don't think there's much different in performance gain if you're using the same filter. Basically, the difference is the material that they use... the name brand one use a better material that are usually stronger and last longer or even conduct less heat than the non brand name one... just my 2cents!!! grin
