    I'm looking at air intakes for my 92 prelude si, and I can't really justify spending $150+ on an AEM, Injen, etc intakes when I can get similar non-brand name ones off ebay, procarparts.com, or jcwsportcompact.com for about $40.

    So my question is: how do these generic intakes compare to brand name ones?

    Thanks. :)

    make your own intake, i have short ram right now which isnt helping shit but just sucking hot air from the radiator, basicaly im planning on going to home depot get some piping and put a cone on it, sure its ghetto but better than hot air, if i get a camera digital camera from someone i might take pics and post em here

  4. If your a n00b check on ebay for cheap rip offs. The only reason I would get an expensive AEM or K&N is for the emission sticker. If you are caught modifying your intake and police check up on it that would be a huge fine since it effects emission standards. K&N have a sticker that would say it passed the test for emissions.

    Nothing..not even the cheap imitation intakes will beat a quality Injen, AEM, Iceman, and WeaponR intake, even the stuff on ebay...
    Id buy and save up for a quality made one.

    BTW: half the price is buying the name.
