So I was looking at the AEM intake and i notice that the Injen intake is $80 cheaper than the AEM, and so i was wondering if you know what's the different between AEM & Injen intake, is it just the name that is difference or performance or..
thanx in the advance

More than that :)

But to satisfy his curiousity I'll try to be nitpicky.

Injen pipe = 2 bends
AEM pipe = 3 bends
what do you mean by bends??

To cause to assume a curved or angular shape: bend a piece of iron into a horseshoe.

So...bend a pipe in the case of Injen (in 2 places) or with AEM (in 3 places) to form a CAI.

Either way...go with the cheaper one.

My AEM CAI only bends in 2 places.:dunno:
Really? From what I've seen it's 3. Correct me if I'm wrong but looking at your sig, the first bend is the one before the bi-pass...the second immediately after the bi-pass tilting down underneath and the third and final one (the one you can't see anymore unless you look in over the hood) tilts up again to make more room for the head of the filter.

If not, the only explanation is that maybe the type S CAIs are a little different other than the extra .5 inch of piping.

hhaaha, you are nitpicky!!! :D anyway...Only the Type S intake systems have the 3 bends. while the 99-01 TL's have only 2 bends...which uses the same intake for the Accord V6.
