      HSPI Cai question

      So i just picked up a 2014 2.4 Ralleye that already has the magnaflow Catback, like the way it sounds, everything else is stock except for plastidipped wheels and HID, So my next purchase is going to be the CAI, I see alot recommending the HSPI, i was wondering if there is that big of a difference between that and the Injen? since its almost twice the cost, even more if you get the Ram kit, speaking of, is it worth getting the Ram kit with the HSPI?

      My buddy was a skeptic. He had the injen and I was one of the first people to get the Eurocompulsion (HPSI at the time) intake. He helped me install mine, and still was not fully supportive of it. He started talking to one of the guys at the shop, and after a while decided to give it a try. He went from injen to the EC intake and told me that it was definitely worth the money for the difference. He also would run his car extremely hard, and had every bolt on you could get.

      I started with it, and love it. What you never hear though is the people that went from one to the other. Typically people won't spend that much. But luckily for those people just like yourself, my buddy did. And I am relaying his response. Typically you only hear of the people either 1) started with EC and recommend it, or 2) have injen and don't understand why people pay so much more for the "same thing".

      Ultimately it's up to you to make the choice, but you will not be disappointed with anything from EC.

      The HPSI/EC CAI isn't really complete without the ram tube.

      I bought the HPSI intake w/RAM Air tube from this guy ^^^@LxiMax^^^ and installed it this past Saturday. I haven't compared gas mileage yet, but it definitely sounds a whole lot better...especially between the 3K-4K RPM range.

      Install was relatively easy. It took me about 2 hours from start to finish.

      I bought the HPSI intake wO/RAM Air tube (plan to add soon) from this guy ^^^@LxiMax^^^ and installed it this past today. As @doobie40 says, definitely sounds a whole lot better...even better than a simple baffle delete which I did a few weeks ago. Very happy with this intake.
