2)what the best brand cai
3)any other do'* and don't'* I should know about

For the most part on a CAI brand doesn't matter. The filter is really the biggest deal. I payed a grand total of $35 (including shipping) for my CAI.

only problem is, those in the links are not cai, they are just open air intakes. i would either make your own, or shell out the 200 for a k&n product. i heard those intakes on explorers wake them up more then our cars

Looks like I'll shell out the 200 and get a K&N. For my explorer.
