US intake with DIY dinan CAI or Euro intake???

I currently have an euro intake, it definitely feels and sounds different; but I also have the US intake sitting in the garage, and i can DIY it to a dinan style CAI too. The Euro box definitely looks better, but the diana could possibly increase power due to more air going into the intake box. so i need suggestion whether i should go for the Dinan CAI or stick with the EURO? is it worth doing it??

You can DIY the Dinan style aux intake port on the Euro box also - that way you also keep the benefit of EZ filter changes since the Euro lid comes off for filter change, instead of having to remove entire airbox...

Dinan. The European airbox offers nothing outside of easy filter changes.

He's not looking to use an actual Dinan airbox though - he wants to DIY modify one of the OEM airboxes with the xtra hose coming off airbox down to front grill @ bottom of bumper

The Dinan ram air intake uses the stock airbox.
