BMS or Vishnu deserve consideration. Very fast to return to stock, more surface area on the filters (inside surface area). If you are going for looks then choose one of the others. If you are going for performance, they will all be close. Buy BMS take the money you save and put it as partial payment to downpipes or upgraded intercooler.

I've seen $499 AFE, $439 Injen, $139 BMS (Spring Sale).

BMS does look simple and cheap, but it does its work. As a previous BMS owner, if you want the loudest intake, go BMS. But if you prefer a more subtle, yet pronounced sound of the turbos spooling, and don't care about the extra $, then go AFE. Can't tell you much about the Injen though.. never got one.

An open intake like those means hot air sucked into your engine. The turbos make up for this by spinning harder in order to move the same volume of air because hot air has low density. Its just like running your car at high altitude. And why would you stress your turbos like this ? Those intakes look good on the dyno, but in the real world they do not bring any advatages.

Just buy the best drop-in filter you can find (Helene for example).

Can you still get Helene? I wanted to get one, but I read on here somewhere that they went out of business??

Out of those 3, BMS is the most cost efficient way of getting the same exact result... for looks, I would say Injen if you have money laying around and can't figure out what to do with it

BMS if you must have an intake.

People are running 11's with the stock airbox right? It must not be too bad then....

I just ordered the Stett's CAI (on sale for $355 shipped). I've had the BMS and I'm changing it out because of the potential heat soak..

I had a AFE and BMS single and i prefer STOCK over both... Thats just me.. Seems more responsive at lower RPM's. I have my stock intake on and car responses much better at down low.

I also went from DCI to stock airbox/drop in. Does feel better down low, but I always wonder if I am losing power in upper rpm's

I really never went to a strip to measure or anything but my butt dyno and g tech pro tells me there is barley any difference running JB3 with and without intakes in times.
