Default AEM Cold Air Intake Question?

Hi, Im im from NY, own a Honda Accord V6 2000. I was looking at these 3 AEM intakes, 1st is a regular one (steel), 2nd is a V2 ( titanium one) and the third one im not sure which one that is.My question is that, which one is better? I know you guys would say the V2 one, but is it worth spending an extra $50-75 dollars on the V2.My last question is that, is the second link product the same as the third?http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...153183371Which one do you guys think I should go for? Im trying to save money here as well.Thnks =]

Don't waste your money on the titanium. Won't be worth the extra money/hp.

I have an 05 V6 accord with V2, get it hands down. You will not be disappointed. You will actually feel a difference, and the sound is intoxicating. its well worth the extra cash.

First of all, that second and third one, are not real AEM products, they are rip offs.Normally the V2 would be the better choice. For all the people talking all this crap about its not worth the extra money just because its titanium. It isnt made out of titanium, that is the color. The V2 is more expensive because it uses more material, and spent longer in R&D (research and development) the V2 is AEMs newest version of Short Ram intakes. They allow more air into the intake manifold than previous versions. Thats why it is worth the money.Second, True CAIs dont produce a lot of power by them selfs, but thats how the NA game is played. There are very few parts that you can get for a naturally asspirated car that will produce large numbers.Third, for the guy that said to just buy a turbo.... you are a moron, a turbo would cost at a minimum 10 times more than this CAI. You are just... dumb.In conclusion, if you decide to buy any of them, get the first one, it is the only true AEM intake. But I suggest going to http://www.corsportusa.com ot http://www.nopionline.com to try to find better prices.
