ebay - short ram
I dont feel like paying $200 for an Injen Intake. so i was looking around. and i heard the ebay CAI are good so just wanna know about these.

Ebay one
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7950502973&category=38634

Its under darkforce.$75. This site also says AEM makes one. But im sure they dont.

Since you are getting a Short Ram I am pretty sure you don't care about gains, So I would say get it, because in the end it's just a piece of pipe with a filter.
It will still give you the good sucking sound you are after.

I would buy the Intake, but I would also get a better filter for it. Something like K&N.

haha i saw that just the other day! I dunno guys have had luck with an ebay Intake being better than Injen/AEM with a few minor tweaks...i mean...you wouldn't score any points with a judge...but...i mean how bad can you screw up an Intake if you make it identical to an Injen SRI? It's up to you man.

lots of people have had sucess w/the ebay CAI. so i dont really see a diffrence. and i do plan on replacing the filter and adding a heat sheild. and my car will never be in a show. so its not for show points.

Search for ebay intke and you will find a bunch of threads. All have people yelling at ebay and saying its crap. Look to see its diameter. If its 3" you will rpoob have to do teh "blue bomber mod" foudn at newcelicaDOTorg uynder installs. Becsaue it has a larger diameter you will prob get bogging and CEL's. If you jsut want looks and cheapness go for it. thumbsup

If you have any quesitons pm me.
