AEM CAI Two Piece or One Piece?

I'm thinking about grabbing the CAI from AEM. I saw one on ebay for like $200 but its one piece. I heard that some of you have two piece CAI from AEM. What is the difference and which is better? And of course where would I be able to buy two piece model if thats better. Thanks.

I believe they released one of their V2 intakes for the SVT which is a 1 piece, but I'm not positive about that, so don't quote me

The only one piece intake AEM makes is the short ram. The CAI is two pieces. It's been a while, but if memory serves me correctly, the lower section is 3" and the upper section is 2.75".

AEM only makes V2 intakes for MAP sensor equipped engines. The MAF placement in nearly all production cars lies right where they overlap their tubing, which is what creates their 'resonance chamber'. Sucks to be us...
