Default Cold air intake

Okay so I have been looking at cold air intake kits for my car. The 3 Ive been looking at are K&N, Thrasher, and aem. Thrasher is the only one I can see that makes one specifically for my car. Can anyone suggest which one im guessing K&N is the best but I would like one that is easy to install.

How concerned are you for the price? I noticed the Thrasher kit is $225. You could save some money by going for a FWI (Fender well intake) and have a cleaner look at the same time.

PM YounggunLS1. He custom makes CAI for our cars. He made mine and I'm very happy with the results.

On a FWI you can use any cone filter that is the same diameter as the tubing you are using. Installation involves popping off the driver'* side headlight and sliding everything in place. The headlight is really easy to take off though so no worries there.
