Default Intense FWI or "ricer" intake?

I was wondering what the differences are between the Intense intake or the semi-custom "ricer" intake....

I like the Intense intake...and it seems like a pretty easy install...but the "ricer" intake looks cheaper....

All suggestions are welcome.....

If by ricer intake you mean a honda rice pipe with a cone filter on the end, you are probably better off just gutting your factory airbox and using a K&N drop in filter until you can afford the Intense FWI. IMO.

Hands down FWI for the 2000+ SSEi'* in my opinion. Whatever you do DON'T buy an eBay intake kit.
