So, you just threw away money? I don't mean to sound harsh, but you shoulda just saved up to do it right in the first place. I have heard that the best setup is a K&N drop-in with an SVT snorkel, I don't know how true that is cause I have an Injen and it works just fine.
As for your poll, yes people make their own, but I don't think they do it to get something modded the cheap way to save up and do it the right way.
