Injen Long tube vs Cold air inductions

What are your opinions?
CAI: $400
Injen:$240 on autoanything after discount code.

I don't need to worry much about hydrolocking since I live in Phoenix so please don't use that as a con for the Injen.
Obviously the Injen is quite a bit cheaper, but I'm willing to spend the extra money for better performance, but don't want to overspend if the injen is better or equal.. Thanks!

There is always Roto-FAB intakes and yes they do make a huge difference.

I don't like the idea of having "too much" intake tube... More bends in the tube, and the longer length can cause drag in the airflow... Not saying the Injen is "too much", but personally, it's not for me.

Definitely look at the Roto-Fab intake if you haven't considered it.

It becomes a matter of what you want to see when you open your hood. For performance the two of those are very close to each other. Here is the HP numbers that were tested a few years ago on the LLT engine.

I also posted what can be done with your INJEN tube to add some of your own taste too.

Awesome thank you!
I just recently got my LFX tuned by IPF and the guy told me one day they took a bunch of different cold air intakes and dyno'd them with the LFX and that the Airaid had the best gains

Does the "long tube" style really make that much difference? Interested because it is much cheaper than the rest of the options and it seems to get the most gains, and also doesn't seem like bad quality.

Supposedly the z/28 intake is going to be offered by GMPP.

The questions are:
1) When
2) How much?

I guess I really can't say which one is the better choice. I went with the Injen short ram intake and I like it. It advertised with about the same added performance as the others but cost a lot less. I did it for the main reason of improving gas mileage which I think it helped to get 1 to 2 more MPG. 2nd reason was the little bit of added performance, it all helps and the more the better. 3rd reason was it was cheaper than the others.

I am fairly positive that it will not work with the v6 cars.

I've got the BBK for my 2013 no complaints had it for a few months. Mostly chose it because hard to get the CAI up here in Canada. It was either this or the K&N and I much preferred the one piece chrome design of this one. If I were you I would go for the Injen, that's a really great price and performance for almost all the intakes are really close, nothing you would feel anyways.
