A question about Intake.

Hi. I'm new to the forums.
I have a pretty simple question about a Volant CAI for my 06 ZX3 Hatch.
I've read through the Intake thread which helped me reach my decision for the Volant. Looks good, and the performance increase is quite intriguing.

The only problem I've stumbled across is that wherever I look FOR a Volant Intake, the specified year, I guess you could say, is usually 2000-2004 or something.
Now, I'm also a noobie when it comes to working on cars, shopping for car parts etc, but I am looking to learn, as I am in love with cars.

My question would be, seeing as those are the years specified that the aforementioned Intake is made for, would it work for an 06? Or does the year not really matter for something like this, where it would matter possibly for headlights/tail lights etc.

Sorry if that's a bit jumbled. In a hurry.
Any help is greatly appreciated. :)

As far as I know the Volant was made only for the Zetec engine. If you are driving an 06 you have a Duratec engine. If you are sure that you want a short ram intake your best bet is the Steeda SRI which can be found at www.steeda.com

Well then, what would be a good alternative for a Cold Air Intake?
Something with the biggest bang for its' buck I guess.

|Edit|:
Or rather, how does the Steeda compare to others, performance wise?
And is it worth the price?

Just bought the FocusSport Cool-Flo Intake.
Here's to hoping it's as spectacular as it sounds.
Supposedly it sounds pretty good. :)
