In my opinion the best intake on the market right now is the X Intake (click on thread for all info). I'll be ordering one in the next few months so I can ditch the Fujita SRI that doesn't really do all that much. X's intake is more expensive than the others, but you get what you pay for (proven hp, and torque gains). After Jan 1, all orders for the X Intake will go through Corsport who is a sponsor on the 8th. Happy shopping:biggrin:

Hydrolock occurs when water is sucked up through a cold air intake, and goes into the engine. It's bad, and you don't want it to happen.

well i would go with the injen cai and i wouldnt worry about hyrolock to much unless it rains alot where you live it is hidden pretty good in the bumper i have the injen cai i live upstate ny where it snows and rain pretty good and i have not had a prob yet but injen sells a sleeve to go over the air filter to prevent lock up and keep it clean without loseing hp as per injen but i cut down 3 tenths off my times with the cai alone.

Here comes the x fan club again. Not everybody wants a homemade intake. Give it a rest you guys.

I remember at one point everyone said, Injen CAI FTW!!!! Now its Xfactor FTW!!! A couple months later it will be [insert new company name here] FTW!!!

I agree with ORRRR, even tho I have one like what X did, not everyone wants some home made intake... most people want aftermarket thats will known and still has good gains

I read the X-intake FAQ and I've heard that supposedly the x-intake suffers from no heat soak, but how many times was the engine run w/ the x-intake? Once or ten times? If it was only once, there wouldn't be much heat in the first place for the intake to absorb? It just makes sense to me. Just wondering...

I have the Injen CAI and cannot wait to get rid of it. it makes my car run fairly rough on occasion. In all honestly I would stick with the stock airbox and spend your money elsewhere or do something like the X intake. I am not an X fanboy but after owning a Injen SRI and CAI, I can tell you they are not worth the money.

who cares what it looks like! its about performance now how pritty it looks in the engine bay. also i have read just about every review people have put up about the x intake after they have installed it and they all read w/ the same result just in different people's perspectives.. i havn't read a single negative thing about what x has made so all i have 2 say is **** all the people that think u can't make power in the garage were do u think all the big companie's started? this is america ass hole's the land of opertunity did we forget that? so the guy took a chance and it came out good! so he is going 2 make money off it! i give him props and i fight for people's ability 2 do that! the only thing i didn't like about it was giving a guy that i don't know my money and having 2 wait for him 2 make the product and send it 2 me. ( no affence x) but now that corsport is going 2 be selling them i will be ordering one for sure.

I am in somewhat of the same position. Exept I really like my CAI, and although imo my car ran relitivly rough stock, on occasion the CAI seems to make things a little worse.(mainly in the summer with the AC on) I just cannot justify spending 300+ on another intake, when I have already spent 270 on my Injen. And if I did buy the X intake I would be expecting to feel a gain, and would be really pissed if I didnt. Plus my idle has smoothed out alot after installing the HFC, and Vibrant 2.5 inch exhaust :biggrin:

To the OP, I would go with either and Injen CAI, Fujita CAI, or the X intake. Hyrolock is not very common, I have ran a CAI on both my cars for about 4 years now, and never had a problem.
