I have the airraid intake for my 2lt. works great and you can get it for under 350 if you look right.

I can only go off of from what I have, and I love it.

In my opinion the best intake is the Cold Air Inductions CAI. To me it looks the best and the performance is there. I noticed a change in acceleration and the overall tone of my car.

I know it's a pretty bad picture but this will give you an idea what it looks like.

x2 on CAI. Not only is Bill a great guy to work with, but the product has been good on every vehicle.

After my catch-can, a CAI in powdercoated black is going on the car.

I have the vararam and it pretty good. I think the CAI is a better setup.

Unfortunately, almost all of the highly recommended intakes are >$300. CAI's cold air intake is $400, for example.

one of the better proven gains is the injen long tube intake.

Why does an intake need a top cover, when the RotoFab and others is sealed tight by the hood.

Vararam for 2010-2011; CAI for 2012+.

This thread is in the wrong forum -looks like OP has a 2012 (LFX)

If you had a 2011 or older, I'd say go for the Vararam, since it's a 2012, I recommend the CAI. Sure it's a little pricey, but it's also quality.
