It's $185 but look what you get ...." The stage 2 systems will show an increase up to 50 HP and improves airflow up to 75%" Too bad you can't sue them for false advertising.

It's not a bad intake. It draws outside air from the fender well and shields the hot air from the engine. There's half a dozen filters that do the same thing. The price isn't to bad on the site I was looking at unless the shipping charges are way up there. Just don't believe the hype about added HP. They all give the engine extra airflow.

I have the Airaid and it's nice because it actually uses the bottom of the factory intake. I got mine on ebay for like 165 with free shipping, the guy will accept best offer, if your not trying to beat him to bad.

Im partial to my CGS motorsport short-ram , even though , yes ,it does pull in hot air. Many simple cheap mods you can do to reduce that though, so its really not a problem. I had the magnum force and honestly didnt care for it. But it was a well built product, ill give it that.
I hear rave reviews about the airaid but it honestly didnt do anything different than any of the other ones i have. i recommend just deciding on a reputable product from a reputable seller and itll all basically turn out the same every way you cut it.
