The stock one. None of the aftermarket ones make any difference that I've seen (except for the hole in your bank account resulting from purchasing one). Some claim a 5 hp increase, but 5 hp is within the margin of error on dynos. You may notice a 5 hp difference going from a warm day to a cool day.

Well, I'd probably get the cheapest one you can find then, or get a used one off Ebay or somewhere. There's nothing wrong with the aftermarket ones, but they are a lot of money for little if any gain.

There shouldn't be any problem. Both are designed to be the same dimensions as the factory pieces.
