Just to warn you, You are going to get slammed with people saying SEARCH.

For your questions. Had one and upgraded to CAI. Big arguments on what is best everyone has their own opinion. It will def make engine sound louder and cheapest place to find them are on EBAY.

Try KKM ( Kurtz Kustomz Motorsports )
I bought mine and was better quality than ebay.
Plus, it cost less than 100 bucks. Sounds good too.
But I wish I have the time to build my own custom CAI :(

Edit: Website is down ATM. http://www.kustomz.com/

Ebay with a better filter is just fine... and yes, most posters here do have an intake, it is one of the first mods done. The filter from ebay does fine, so don't feel you need to upgrade immediately, just whenever you are ready.

ill take the eBay one for the third the price (shipped) of $92 :biggrin:
Dunno if ebay is as good but for the 92$ @ KKM you get the whole thing: pvc tubing, install guide, bracket support, stickers, adaptor and the high flow inverted cone filter. ;)

Gas milage way better with cold air,

basically its more pipe to make the intake filter run down to behind the bumper where the air is cooler
most that have done this have either
a: reloacted the battery to the trunk and drilled a hole right down
or
b: ran the piping through the existing hole for the intake
will require a little tinkering to fit through which is why i havent had time yet
