05focusST91 I have the aem cai and its been great for about 30k miles, the most you'll have to do is every 15-20k pull the filter off and clean it

now when you start working on exhaust, that's when you should consider your neighbors. some neighbors are cool, some aren't. I leave for work roughly around 4:30 every morning and my neighbors have yet to complain about my exhaust.

Focusblackzx5 Steeda SRI is a very good one..love mine and his sound :)

LikwidZX5 No replacements for cars with lifetime filters. Better to just get a SRI or CAI and call it a day.

badazz2010focus Yeah aem is good because they use dry flow technology, are you stock? Aem however does not sell stock replacement filters only k&n does.
