SPI CARB legal intakes?

Okay, I did a search, both here and on Google, and what I found was somewhat poor.

What I'm looking for is a CAI for the SPI engine that is CARB legal. I live in California and we have air nazis in this state, which means that unless it has a CARB sticker, I can be fined and not pass smog. I know if I swap out my TB, I can fit a CARB legal Zetec CAI, but the TB will be illegal.

The only system I have found so far that 1. is CARB legal and 2. fits on my SPI engine is the iceman system. I'm looking at this particular mod and I'm thinking, "WTF? I want a CAI"

Any help?

Had the same problem heres the research I found

1. AEM
2. K&N
3. Iceman??

Those three are the ones I am aware of that either have a carb sticker on them or might have one.
