New Mission vs Steeda CAI

I have been considering the Steeda CAI and the pro's/con's of both intakes. Have any of you went from the new mission set up to a FS werks/Steeda/AEM etc? What are you thoughts on the change and did you feel the price of the CAI was worth it? I have read all the threads on the speculations of the different set ups and have not come to a line in the sand yet. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. My commute is about 50/50 city/highway.

Not going to knock Steeds stuff its good but my car dynoed 160hp at wheels with New Mission intake lunchbox delete. Just my opinion but best bang for buck. I don't think there would be much improvement. I also did a run with air box cover off and got just 2 more horse.

I am planning on combining the two setups down the road. I am going to gather some MPG data for various mixes of driving so I can compare how one vs the other and combined all stack up.
