Most will tell ya that most intakes are the same. When you think about it, they are. Sounds like you have a good filter, thats whats important. That being said, I went with the Carbonio CAI. Why? It was cool lookin.
I have the Velocity, and it is a good piece as everyone else already said. I did a groupbuy on these almost two years ago, sold about 30 of them, and got no complaints after they shipped from anyone, so everyone seemed to be pretty happy. Unless you are hard pressed on having the the bling bling carbon fiber of the Carbonio, I would get the velocity.
i think i'm going to pick up a velocity cai soon. it seems like a really good price! is the 7" filter better to get than the 5"? also does anyone take off their intake and replace it with the factory airbox during the winter?
