Another alternative is the Injen EIS Intake. You can pick it up from Bavarian X. This intake will produce up to 11hp and about 10.5lbs of torque. Here is a video of mine that I put together after installing it.

You can see the original thread regarding this here.... INJEN EIS INTAKE!!!!

not a big fan of an open intake, takes too much hot air but the sound is sweet.

Cool video

Simota claims the CBII version has a 7hp gain. The Simota V2 suppose to have a better number than CBII. We will dyno a 330 with CBII and V2 recently.

i believe the OEM perf. intake is a completely sealed box...
