Default Which Intake should i choose?

I was wondering which intake kit I should buy. Also, I notice that some come with a non-metallic tube and others come with the aluminum tube....what difference will each make and which is better? any helpful feedback will be greatly appreciated!

OK, no intake is better than another, its really only for personal appeal. Yes I know some ads say gain up to 15 rwhp and others say gain up to 10 rwhp, but the plain truth is that no cai will really give you a better gain than another. Me I have a fenderwell mounted kit with the chrome finish, nice. Oh you will realistically gain about 5-10 rwhp with any cai, hope this helps. Read up on some other cai post in this forum so that we don't start to repeat ourselves.
