Default Dual cold air intakes

I've been noticing the price difference between the dual cold air intakes on EBAY and the normal pricing. Does anybody know if these cheap dual intakes work or would I be better off paying the plus or minus $300 for a CAI?

no, because the dual intakes sit right above the exhaust manifolds sucking in only hot air. anything that claims to be a cai that doesnt have a heat shield isnt. i got my intake off ebay for 212.00

that or what i heard what someone else did is they got extra tubing and directed them to the wheel wells on each side and then wrapped the tubing from the intake all the way to the filter with heat wrap...it takes some handy man modding but if its done right i think it'd work pretty good

Dual intakes won't help you any more then a single intake.. you can still only take in 14.7 PSIyou should get a supercharger if you want more then that.. the only reason to get dual cold air intake would be for some under the hood bling.. if you are going for performance , do what someone else said and run your intake down by your fender where the air is actually cold

I saw the same thing on Ebay.Like everyone else CAI's for the most part are not worth it.However,for 50.00 the dual intake does look very cool.Id buy it just for the bling factor.

Here's the deal with ram air.....
Unless you are going to be doing over 135 mph, you are not going to get any performance gain from adding ram air. Like Red said, the throttle body can only flow 14.7 psi. In order for the TB to flow more air than that, you would have to be doing at least 135, or get a supercharger that will ram the air into the motor. Ram might look cool....but your not going to see any performance gains at all.

Now I know that the air inthe wheel wells are cool but isnt the air pressure incredibly poor? and if the air pressure is low thenisnt that countering the modified intake?

Air pressure is poor, but pressure is not what you are after with a cold air intake. Your after less constriction. The stock air set-up isn't bad, but none the less, it is more restrictive than a "cold" air intake. There are bends, and dead ends where the air loses its flow velocity. Adding aCAI isamuch less restrictivepath, so faster throttle response is what is achieved. And of course- cooler air. Cooler air = more power.
