Default im thinking BAD NEWS with my....

cold air intake. i never really thought about it before but my cai is kinda weird in the way its set up. the maf is in the fender too. ive looked at others and its still in the engine compartment like halfway up the tube. you cant even see mine its so far into the fender. you think im getting the right flow like that? i got it cheap at the shop and they said it would work but now im thinking they mght have just wanted to sell it. they said it was an anderson power pipe but it looks kinda cheap. ill get a pic in a minute. im just wondering, should i just get a better cai such as bbk?? aqnother thing, bbk or [email protected]?? thanks yall.
