Help Me decide What Intake 2 Get For SVT

I looked around a bit and noticed people are having problems with the AEM CIA so that is out, so here are the 3 I am going to pick from.

1. FocusSport Cool-Flo Air Intake System
2. Steeda SVT Short Ram
3. K&N Typhoon

I am mostly looking at the first 2 but really haven't heard anyone talk much about the FocusSport Intake. Anyone have one and have comments? I have heard good things about the Steeda one and so far, and am leaning in that direction.

Thanks for the help,


-Kris

I have the luxury of living about 15 minutes from Focus Sports' shop in Anaheim. I have purchased their cold-air intake setup (and other stuff) and I am very happy with it.

I installed it myself in about 45 minutes. The heat shield uses the factory mounting points that the removed airbox used. A very well engineered product.

I don't know about the others, but I can highly recommend the FocusSport.

I have the AEM CAI now and have runned it for almost a year now. I've not been all that happy with it, not to mention every two weeks I have to clean the filter, due to the fact of were it sits, gets plenty dirty real quick.

I'm looking at in the very close near future, I mean like before track season gets here, getting the Steeda or going with FocusSport. I'm still researching, but def going with a change.

Ive had the AEM for a while, but in Nor cal its been raining a lot, so i think i sucked up a bunch of water. My mass air got messed up and i didn't have any low in power til i fixed it. Go with the steeda cold air. It sucks air right from behind the grill like the stock right? Don't get AEM
