Doesn't matter which one you go with, your cars performance will suffer. I had the original AFE CAI and the only thing good about it was the sound. On hot days the car felt like a tank on take off. There might be a slight performance increase at high speeds since you will be pulling in plenty of cold air but on take off your car will be pulling in a lot of hot air from the engine bay.

You will be better off with a stock intake with a K&N drop in and the carbon filter cut out. The next options would be either a BWM performance intake or a Euro intake with a K&N cone. All 3 options are far better than an open CAI, which in reality is nothing more than a heat sponge.
You can detect right away those that are going to be shaky, and that will fall behind and those that are very hungry, and that hunger you will have to develop. You gotta create a goal for yourself whatever that may be, a short term goal and a long term goal and you gotta go after that. And if you donít see it, and if you donít believe it, who else will?
