I have narrowed it down to 2, but i havent been able to decide between the afe stage 2 or a air raid system. Anyone have any thoughts on those two?

Here is a quick, little mabobber I wrote, related to my aFe CAI.

It all comes down to personal preference. Which ever you pick, you will be happy with it. If you run an oiled filter, take the five minutes every so often to clean the MAF sensor.

It's all personal preference but I really like my dry S&B intake.

I do not think that anybody will feel a difference in the seat of their pants with a CAI. The only way you could measure a difference is with flow meters and or a dyno. Most people do not have access to either one. That leaves you to compare by each companies technical data that they market by. If you look at flows better than stock data Banks is first and Airaid is second. If you look at temperature of air coming in Banks is best with Airaid second. Many others show that they actually have higher temperature air than stock. Its a toss up but research is your friend.
