Pretty much every CAI made for the 5th Gen would work with that intake.

How do you like runnin the fast intake? I have heard some people swear by them and some say its not worth it. I think I may end up with one. It seems that the N/A cars that are over 500RWHP are running the fast or some ported intake..

There's a reason those guys are running them. At that point, you're either boosted or looking for every last drop of HP from your setup. Boosted guys do benefit a bit from the bigger intake. Once the NA guys get close to 500whp, there's not a lot left to do besides VERY expensive engine work. The cost/benefit ratio of JUST the intake isn't there. Swapping to the bigger TB will give you the most benefits but that can lead to other problems. There can be tunning issues with the bigger TB and i'm not sure if there's a 102mm TB that isn't cable driven. In the end, you have to decide if the $900+ pricetag for 10 or so HP is worth it to you.
