you can't go wrong with either one. You could get the Injen CAI, then the Injen dress up engine covers to make your engine bay style "flow" better.

Please don't tell new members to just "search". Show them the way. That's what we are here for.

I have Injen CAI. But, you can't go wrong with either one.

Im going for the AEM cos it has a bypass valve you can buy for it to minimize the hydrolock problem. Injen has some slash guard thing i heard but i rather go with a bypass valve.
and as for the engine covers...are you kidding? they're only for the GTS? so on a GT all the parts are sticking out like a huge mess with no way to make it look "clean"?

You could probably fit the bypass valve on the Injen as well. If not, you can always opt for putting a K&N DryCharger on the Injen filter element, which will keep out water.

It's all a matter of preference, you can't go wrong with either one.

lower RPM is your low end power..when your RPM gauge in the car reads anywhere from 2 to 4...
High RPM is anything from like 6 and above...the high end power...

4-6 is usually the mid RPM's which always has good gains throughout both of the Intakes.

do you get what I am saying?
an AEM Intake had more gains from the 2-4k RPM than the Injen did...but Injen had higher gains from about 6k+ RPM...
both Intakes are great.
I have an Injen Shortram.
