Just wanted to see if anyone knew if there was any difference between cheaper intakes (VRSF, BMS, ARM) and more expenive intakes (aFe, Injen). There is a good 400 dollar price difference and I just wanted to know if it was worth it.

Built a hybrid DCI intake front hot side and rear cold side, both are right behind the headlights and have a heat shield on the cold side intake as it's close to the alternator which puts off some heat. I used a pair of huge skunk2 velocity stack cones, my inlets are full 3".

Have a aFe Momentum GT intake which worked great, but limited my options.

Interesting! I couldn't see it on your build thread? Wouldn't mind some pics :)
