Basically, those are rice pipes, they will all work. The problem will be sucking in hot engine bay air. This can be corrected by building a custom air box. Your not really going to get any added power.

You don't have to. But to get the most out if it ya. however, you have a NA engine so the hot air will have less effect.

Even though your not supercharged, any car can still benifit from a good Cold Air Intake, or CAI.

Most fenderwell intakes designed for the supercharged cars can work with your car, so I would check them out!

Heres one are some DIY parts from intense.
Tubing
Filter

Then the rest of the stuff can come from your local autozone or any other parts store, even a store like ace hardware or Lowes will have the parts do DIY, a much better performing intake.

Both the INsys system are the same. The chrome intake one looks like it get'* the filter closer to the front end of the car and near the air box inlet on the front clip. You'll probably get better and cooler air on that one if you really feel compelled to buy any of them.

Go to intense racing and buy 2 feet of the flex hose, I think it'* about $10 a foot. Then pick up a K&N filter and run it down in to the fender.
