Chris, I like the Injen intake. What's the deal with that Hydroshield on the filter? Looks like a nice little thing to have just in case.

I went a slightly more moderately priced route with the DC Sports CAI. All in all I like it and the install was super easy. Here's a couple pics:

thanks. the hydro-shield was free with the purchase so it was more of an added bonus lol. ive seen water drops on it so it does what it needs to.

i cant remember how much i payed but i know i had a bunch of coupons and stuff from autoanything.com so i just got it from them. i need to get in there and clean it cause right now its full of spots hah.

well, i've had my DIY intake on for a couple weeks now. i also took a pretty big road trip last weekend and it looks like ive picked up a couple MPG's with the set up. im feeling a lil bit more pep since ive done the intake and im up on my MPGs from 32 to a lil more than 34!

Sweet, I found like 10-12 wheels to choose from. I talked to Injen, the R&D guy told me they have not confirmed their CAI will work on the 2010

Another vote for next level, I know several people who have purchased rims through them with zero issues.

I have a custom short ram similar to the hps intake. The difference is the cold air set ups run into the fender and usually the filters sit behind the bumper. Short ram intake sit visable in the engine bay, easier to install, and are better for low to mid range power gains. Cold air intakes due to the longer intake tract offer higher gains because of colder denser air but gains are not felt til higher in the rpm range.

as stated^

Short ram filter normally in engine bay and has a short straight or fairly straight tube

Cold air has longer tubing with more bends. and filter is outside of engine bay normally in wheel well getting the cooler air. The other difference is price and maybe a couple of ponies.

Default Diy cai
I took the factory air intake off last night and installed this DIY intake filter. It cost about $30 total for the Spectre Filter from Autozone and the 5/16" threaded stud with washers and nuts I bought from home depot. It tool longer to go get the parts than it did to put it on. Very simple. I haven't had a chance to do any driving with it yet other than a couple of blocks to work. I'm only hoping that maybe it will gain a couple of MPGs.

steve see the intake you made, thats how i started with a spectre filter and stock intake tract. if you really want a more noticable difference, the filter should ve been either a knn or like a aem dryflow. and see that rubber pipe with that awkward pole coming out of it right after the maf? you could actually replace it with a 22 degree bend pipe from autozone (located with all the intake parts) it not only looks more official it actually smooths out the airflow because there are no ridges in the pipe. just a suggestion.
