    Ok, I am buying a CAI tommrow a brand called "generick" or something like that. I was wondering if anyone has heard of this brand before.

    AND also one more thing...

    How long does it take to install the intake?
    and do i have to remove my bumper to do this??

    Thanks....

    uh...dont buy it. the only ones worth a damn are AEM, Injen, K&N, Icebox. others have filters which are not engineered well and prolly wont add any power..or very little. you can save money buy just bying the filter from K&N or one of the other companies for about $25-$40 and getting the tube made somewhere.

    I agree with rixXxboy. You don't need to spend $200+ on a stupid intake. Get a good filter to go with a no-name pipe. IMHO, it's not worth the $150 for 1/2 hp.

    DAM i bought the intake already

    ITS not bad though my rpm's are higher and it sounds GREAT after 4500 rpm

    THere is no way i am gonna pay like 350 for a AEM CAI
    Also my gas pedal feels heavier so it might of increased a small amount of ponies

    i think it really has more to do with the filter than the tubing ... the tubes are all pretty similar its the filters that are usually unique to each brand

    I didn't listen to everyone here and I bought a ractive intake and I saw really no difference. Sold it, saved the money and bought an AEM, lets just say big difference. K&N is the best filter but AEM are building there own filters instead of using K&N.
