About To Order AFE Intake

So I'm about to order the AFE intake, is there any reason I should change my mind? It seems as if the AFE is the best intake?

Also, the best price ive seen is $297 on ebay. Any better prices?

It is hard to say what is the best CAI without running your own tests. They all have pros and cons. They all say they have the best performance. My advice is to think about what is important to you and tailor your question to weed out the fan boy replies.

I have had K&N and AFE intakes in the past on other vehicles and was impressed by both.

I don't wanna be like every tuner kid out there, "yeah its got a K&N". Plus I feel that smaller companies engineer better than large companies do.

I don't know, looking at the AEM, the filter is much larger than the AFE?

Larger filter means more air, that is the purpose for the CAI.

I have aFe and am happy with it so far. (3ish years) I picked the aFe because I liked the air box. I felt that it would do a good job at protecting the filter from water and it has done well.
