The demensions of most all CAI are exactly the same. Just go for what ever looks better to you or what ever you would like to spend. Honestly, if you really wanted to be cheap, you could just slap a K&N cone on there and not buy a CAI. When you play with the throttle, you can watch the rubber tube flex like a slinky but wala! Redneck Cold Air! =D

In my opinion any cai that has the filter in the engine bay is useless because that surely isn't cold air and any cai kit that has chrome piping either.find a car that just got off the road and put your hand on that pipe and see how hot it is.that thing is a stove.I would go fender mounted possibly and one with a plastic or carbon fiber tube.I'm no expert and I may be wrong but take it for what you will.

I've just got a cai off eBay for 40 bucks. Sold the filter to mu dumb friend for 20, then bought a k&n for 40. And walla, a 60 dollar cai that flows just as good as a bbk, k&n, etc.

best route right there.

cheapest would just be a k&n in the stock box. pipe is pipe, doesnt matter whos name is on it, they all do the same thing
