I know that the BFI is probably the best way to go, but it is really expensive compared to the Spectre. BFI is about $400 and the Specrte is about $150 max. What do you think I should do. I guess i could save up and buy the BFI later.

All i can say is, you get what you pay for....Good parts that are built to last and work properly are expensive, but worth it in the long run....

"We may not be your first intake, but we'll be your last!"

Can beat an intake with a lifetime warranty - and the sound she produces just kicks butt!

AFE Stage 2 has great results as well and isn't as pricey.. (well, not as bad anyway,lol)

BFI hands down. Look at the list of aftermarket intakes, none can offer what the BFI does. Like Chillz said, you get what you pay for. If you go cheap, don't expect the performance, noise, or durability of an intake that is mass produced... If you go mass produced, don't expect the performance, growl, or lifetime warranty of a BFI.
