Default the prices at eBay have me wonder about their durability & longevity. I suggested that site so you could look at their make ups to see if they could be better. I believe AEM is a good brand, but I particularly lean towards K&N as far as air filters & CA/SR Intakes are concerned.

If your engine is modified, go with a name brand intake. If your engine is stock, then an intake is an intake, so save yourself some money and buy a cheap one with a good K&N cone filter. I guarantee if you compared the 2, NO ONE would be able to tell the difference. K&N also makes all the air filters for AEM.

they wont work the same, AEM uses better metals compared to generic ebay intakes, unless you dont really car about performance. i recommend geting a brand named intake to feel the full effect of an intake. you pay for what you get.
