For a cold air, AEM, they have tons of research and development in their intakes including dyno testing etc.

none really do all that much. The difference in power gains will be at most 1 hp between the different ones. Seriously. Youre not going to make 15 hp from an intake. Youll be lucky to get 5.

You really wont get much power so it doesn't really matter. It you look at all the differnt ones they are all pretty much the same. I bought a no name brand off e-bay for $15 and spend $30 on a K&N filter for it. I saved at least $100 and the filter is the only part that matters. AEM has the only advantage because they offer the water bypass valve but you can buy this and add it to any brand intake. If you put on a cold air just remember to drive very carefully in the rain and dont ever drive through puddles. I know a girl who is still paying off her car that has been without an engine for 2 years because she got it vaporlocked and bent all the rods. Personally I wouldn't put a cold air on any daily driver. Not worth the risk.
