    They are almost all the same unless you get into carbon fiber and other higher end materials. Just get a cheap pipe ebay pipe and use a good filter like K&N and comptech

    Ebay Pipe/Spectre Pipe from Autozone + K&N filter

    or

    TASauto Hybrid Intake

    No need to burn a hunnit or 2 on a pipe and filter.

    Like the rest said, I got myself an eBay CAI paired with an AEM dryflow filter (the filter that comes with the eBay kit sucks), and it works great :D

    Agree on good cheap ebay pipe and K&N filter. Also ebay pipes then to break fast, where it mounts to body of the car to hold it. My brother bought ebay pipe, sanded, painted it, and bought K&N filter and it looked nice.

    I've had AEM intake for 2.5 years now, no problems, really nice.

    Aem has a really nice sound to it! Some of the cheaper ones have a tiny sound when Vtec kicks in, do to the thinner metal they use.

    Or you could just get a "drop in" k&n filter. I'm thinking about hacking up my short ram to make my own "tas auto" hybrid intake and drop in k&n filter and then make my own cold air/ram air transition to the filter box.

    You'd have to drive through a pond to hydro lock your motor, a CAI isn't a problem.

    But if you want an SRI it's easier and cheaper to do, just get a generic pipe and a decent filter as previously said.

    Personally I love my AEM V2.
