I see that your location is in CA. I recommend F sport for it being carb approved. Injen is louder but its not carb approved and in the summer, it will suck in hot air. I used to have a Injen intake on mines but switched over to F Sport.

I have an Injen and love it. It has been 95+ here for the past few weeks and I haven't noticed a difference.

The F Sport if you want true CARB exempt. I had an injen and I bought an F Sport CaRB sticker and kept it in the glove box in case I got pulled over and for smog. It costs $5 at the dealer. injen looks better to me too with the exposed filter.

I like the Injen Intake but bought F-Sport instead. OEM and CARB legal.

^^Not sure if its illegal in your area but it isn't carb exempt in california. Installing the injen and f sport intakes are easy. There is a diy aomewhere here for the f sport.

Here is a pic of what I had for visual pleasure.
