Default short ram question

i definitly want one, but is this one a good intake or a cheap rip off? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-97...QQcmdZViewItem

if it is as good as a AEM which i want, should i get that? it just seems so cheap for a car part.

injen and aem are essentially the same product. i believe, and correct me if im wrong, the creator of injen was before hand an engineer or designer for aem. both are great products and it all boils down do what u think looks better and price...

ive been using a cheap ebay intake cold air intake... and its worked great.... only thing i will eventualy swap out is the air filter.
i dont see why any other brand would be beter... its a smooth pipe and a filter on the end
only thing that might boost performance alittle is to wrap the intake tube with some insulating material to block out the engine heat alittle beter.
