Banks Ram air intake vs ppe stock intake mod?

Well the tittle explains it but I have a green air intake right now and want to get better mpg/performance. Has anyone has experience with either?
Thanks.

I would consider a intake, and go with a Banks, or S&B. I would only do the Banks if you are going to add the super scoop though.

How is S&B different than the banks with super scoop?

Thanks.
You are about to make the same mistake that thousands before you have made. Don't be another victim of a fraudulent industry.

On a budget= intake mod, Lil' money to spend= S&B, Not too worried about money= Banks.

Killerbee: Are you talking about ppl who spend a shit ton of money, just to 'save' money?

No. I don't get it really.

You know, I have a bunch of stock filter minders I have aquired over time. Has anyone EVER asked themselves why none of these intakes come with one?

I think the S&B looks good but i have a XDP gift card for 50 bucks if the banks is worth the $100 more i might consider it?
is there a huge difference? or am i better off and saving the 100 bucks for my gas tank

Thanks
