here are both websites so you can compare for yourself... i find the dyno numbers interesting considering the price difference in products (yes steeda's torque numbers are higher, but that's an extra $120 for 1.6 ft-lbs more torque)

http://www.steedafocus.com/parts/201...ir-intake.html

aside from all of that... i would go with a (true) cold air intake over a short ram given the option (which is why i stated that even if you gave it to me for free i wouldn't run it...)
i wont pay 300.00 for the Steeda one, simply i agree with you i dont feel its worth it, but im not about to spend 180 buxs on the fswerx one either.

id love to see steeda lower thier price,perhaps more ppl would buy if so!
