You can build the INTENSE one much cheaper if you wanted to. You'd need to find a few parts on your own (2 3" lenghts of 3.5" pipe)

3 Feet of Intense FWI tubing: $35.97
K&N Filter, 7" from INTENSE: $34.99
Generic Silicone Coupler: $10-$15
Clamps: $5-$10
2 3.5" Pipe Sections: $5-$10???

TOTAL:$100-$120 Total

You would also need to relocate your IAT sensor, since you would not be using the INTENSE coupler.
Either cut the wires and extend, like several members here or pay $15.99 for the one from INTENSE.

However I went with the INTENSE package for $179, since it includes extremely high quality clamps, high quality coupler and high quality aluminum pipe inserts. However you do pay $50 extra for the nice coupler. but its a custom made part (low production = high costs) and silicone stuff is not cheap.

If you're on a budget, gut the stock airbox and drop in a K&N.

If not, do it right the first time with the FWI.
