Air intake recommendations

I'm looking into replacing the stock air intake. I have been shopping around a little and just wanted to see what some of you guys use and how the performance is.

There is no performance gain to be had with an intake or filter, just more dirt entering the engine.

afe CAI

I did my research and ended up going with the aFe Cold Air Intake. I'm not sure if it created anymore HP but it did make it sound better. I bought the two air filter cone application (because it looks cool!) and it was pretty easy to install.
