Are you in California? If so you have to get AEM to be CARB legal. Otherwise you won't pass the visual part of the smog test. Intakes really don't add much performance wise - do you have an exhaust to let all that extra air out of efficiently? The biggest difference you'll notice is the growl. Otherwise, all intakes are pretty much the same - a tube and a filter, so you can buy any cheap tube and a nice filter and it'll work just the same. Are you lowered? Make sure you get a bypass if you live in a wet climate so you don't suck up water.

you want the smoth finish on the inside to maximise the air flow and bigger the better but you need the fittings and airfilter to go with it if he dosent allready have them and if vtec it will sound great

AEM v.2 if money is no concern ($250). You can make an intake that will give you 95% of the performance gain of the AEM v.2 for around $30 plus $50 for a filter. But if you are in California, you need to have a CARB legal intake. The do-it-yourself version won't have this so you will have problems. But there are several other manufacturers out there that are CARB legal for a fraction of the price.
