Default Intake questions

So I'm looking into getting rid of the factory airbox. I'm not looking to gain any hp though It would be nice. I'm looking to free up some space. on eBay there is aem cold air intakes for 140 and cheapo 40 ones. Would the cheap ones work? Are they actually direct fit or universal pipe peices?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The ebay tubes fit perfectly. In all honesty you can purchase that, and then get your hands on a 3" K&N cone if you worried about the cheap filter media.

AEM dryflow are a better filtering media, but K&N have better air flow.

You'll notice an audible gain in intake sound and once rolling, you'll definitely notice a mid range torque gain like pulling from 3rd to 4th.

I kept my stock airbox, removed the resonator and put a K&N box filter and notice the difference I just mentioned.

The problem I see with all of the intake options is I see no way to connect the crank case ventilation hose(from the valve cover) or the intake temp sensor)..

The AEM CAI I bought had a hole & grommet for the IATS and a nipple on the underside of the pipe for the crankcase vent line.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I'd love to get the aem but can't justify the money for it. I can get a decent looking one for 65 bucks with a k&n cone.
