Just my two cents, but think about the sheer quantity of Honda engines out on the street and compare that to the relatively small number of BMW engines. That plus when you consider the demographics, I'm sure the percentage of BMW drivers that would want to mod their engine must be tiny compared to the percentage of Honda drivers that would want to mod their engines... from a market standpoint, we're sort of screwed. I suppose we're paying for exclusivity, no?

used ECIS CAI - cheap and lovin' it!

Dinan's cold air intake at $500

http://www.aempower.com/air_induction.htm
AEM's (honda) intake for $375 but could be bought at sale price of $195

Same K&N air filter cone.
I do not know the diff cost between the dinan carbon fiber pipe and AEM's aluminum pipe. But I'm sure that Dinan's EXTRA r/d into their intake pipe that it deserves almost $300 more.
