K&N and Apexi are good, Apexi being better.
Spectre is just another cheapo filter that you can buy at auto parts stores in their "make your own intake" section.

You should be able to get a 2 piece cai off of ebay for about the same price as just the short ram. Then you could try it both ways and see what you like better. Hell if nothing else you decide on just using it as a short ram sell the lower section of pipe with the ebay filter to someone else lol.

Yeah pretty much. Unless you live somewhere with strict emissions laws you'll be fine with not having a carb certified intake. A pipe is a pipe pretty much. You could alwyas put an AEM or Injen sticker on it if it would make you feel better lol.

Cold Air Intake. You'll also see SRI which would be Short Ram Intake.

Id say AEM or K&N. This might be useful too, in regards to Spectre filters http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=168090

I have a AEM CAI and they use K&N filters. However K&N intakes are made from plastic whereas my AEM is metal. plastic does not transfer heat as well as aluminium so If I had to do it again I would just get a K&N

The K&N cai kit is not even worth the price. It just sticks a filter on the stock tube and runs a "cold air" pipe through the engine bay.

http://www.coolparts.com/docs/kn/ins...ns/57-0541.pdf

K&N filter on a generic short ram tube is your best bet. With any cold air intake you are going to have to cut a hole in the front engine bay area.
