they were really popular back in the "fast and the furious" days ,you would see them a lot on Hondas but they seemed to drop off the face of the earth

Why you wanna drop the stock box?
If it's for more noise just do the baffle delete with a drop in.
You might kick yourself in the a$$ if you have to end up taking it back off your car because of CEL and end up with an expensive paperweight.
I put a CAI on my 06 and lost killer power and it ran like $hit till I put the stocker back on.
Alot of people make the mistake of messing with the airbox without a tune, but do what you will man.

Another crappy thing about CAI is the worry about water.

Just my .02

Good luck.

I had just found one for a good deal, and I'm not gonna lie, it looked pretty cool too, but I definitely would not do it without a tune. I more than likely will end up doing the stock filter deal, seeing as how it is much cheaper, but I wanted to get ideas on it before committing to it...I had never really heard of it. If I do go that route, it will more than likely be Cobb, AEM, or Injen. I know those are 3 pretty reputable companies. I think I was just a little too distracted by the "SHINY" appearance of the Weapon R. Damn ADD...

Stay way from Injen too. The other 2 you mentioned are fine.

So, as far as a filter goes, and you had a choice, would it be k&n, Cobb, or AEM?

K&N hands down. Just get the panel filter and you'll be happy.
