don't buy one if your car HAS a MAF and the one you are considering buying doesn't. Car will run like a load of crap. The MAF makes all the engine sequences work correctly.

Your factory intake IS a cold air intake, just get a K&N filter for it.

Look at where the tube goes, it's sealed, all the way to the passenger side fender-well.
That air is from outside the engine bay, and is a true CAI. If you open the hood, and SEE
your intake filter, then NO, it is not a cold air intake.
