Difference between these cold air intakes?

I'm looking to purchase a cold air intake for my automatic '07 Eclipse GS. I was looking at these two Injen intakes, which have two different images, but no real difference is listed. Is there a real difference between these?

06-07 Mitsubishi Eclipse L4 2.4L Injen Cold Air Intake System

06-07 Mitsubishi Eclipse 4-Cyl. 2.4 Injen Cold Air Intake System

No. Intakes dont do anything but make the rest of the exhaust sound a bit louder/better. No performance gain rly. Also u have a 4g on club3g. But thats ok no harm

Way too much money just for a name. No payback at all performance wise. Get a cheap one off ebay or amazon or build your own. It's all the same crap. Some piping, connectors and a filter.

You know in most cases, cai decrease horsepower compared to a factory intake.

I got a CAI, I don't have more or less performance, and I get the same gas mileage. The only thing that changed was I got more room in my engine bay, I worry more about taking in water, and I have a deeper sound above 2,500 RPM's

Wrong. AEM, Injen, K&N do alot of R&D. Mounting it a huge difference. Those cheap turds off ebay are crap.

You pay for piece of mind. Did you know all of those crappy cheap intake have no mounting points? Which cause hose clamps to come loose, which causes unmeasured air to get in the system. Not only that, they corrode from the inside out (at least mine did when I was young, dumb, and cheap.)


OP you're doing the right thing. Get a quality part, with warranty, and a good nights sleep at the end of the day knowing you have a good product, and not something made in a Chinese sweatshop by 5 year olds. Looks like the biggest difference in both of those links is one has an intake shield, the other doesn't.

^^ this x10. My first intake was an eBay and due to not having proper mounting tabs, engine vibration eventually rubbed a hole in the tube. Spend the extra money and get a quality part.

The 2 posts above sum up everything. You buy a cheap product and thats what you will get.

On paper, yes. In practice, nothing any of us will ever notice.

Since I only keep cars on average of 2-3 years, I go cheap wherever I can. I learn to make things work that may not be perfectly engineered for a particular vehicle by boatloads of R&D and the added cost associated with it (along with the "name"). I put it back to stock when I'm done having fun with it, sell it and move on to something else. Just my personal experiences. Nothing right or wrong about having opinions. OP, do what you want. Good advise here from all parts of the spectrum. If you want to brag to your friends you have a brand name CAI, then go for it. If you want to tell them you have a CAI and leave it at that, then go for that then. It's your car.
