Your going to get a lot of suggestions. I haven't tried multiple ones on my car. I just put on the Airaid 2 weeks ago, and i'm not going to take it off to try another brand. Especially, because it was such a tight fit to put on the car.

Seriously, though you can twinkle around research and get a million answers. Just pick the one you like sound wise and cosmetically, because they are about the same gains.

Airaid, I find has more of a deep air suction noise when you initially gas it (not really a whistle). I can't hear it from inside the cabin when i'm driving though (maybe other drivers can). I can hear it when i'm outside the vehicle and my friend hits the gas or if my window is down and I rev. Otherwise, its just burble/growl at 2500 rpm's and higher. I notice it a lot more in 2-4 gears.

Airaid has great quality feel to their CAI. When you put it on, you know it's a solid product. It's a tight fit, and you know nothing is lose or moving around.

I was going to buy BBK, just because it had some blue on it. But when I went into my shop they had the Airaid in stock and I said f*ck it. It's been awesome though! 93 Hybrid Tune has been working amazing from BAMA too...goodluck my pick is Airaid
