SRIs witch to get

I'm having a hard time deciding witch SRI I want. I've narrowed it down to 2 intakes: The WR Secret and the Simota Carbon Charger. I thought I knew which I wanted, then I looked on Kargoboy's site. The only "issue" is the Simota is on back-order, but in reality I'm not planning to install it for a while like Spring or so. So why buy now? Because I can, will, and shall. I'm leaning more towards the Simota as it's the cheapest one. Also who wouldn't wanna support the YW venders? Any thoughts?

I say go with the Simota. I have the carbon fiber SRI, and I like it a lot!
Also, Gary (kargoboy) is a great guy to deal with. 5 stars all around!

i saw brazdon on saturday and i cant recal what intake he had but i know that he shortened the aftermarket SRI he had by 5 inches and it made a very noticable increase in power. so whichever is shortest is the one u want

Weapon r is fine, used them before, decent economical part. Only thing you should do is get a better filter but as far as the hard part goes its fine. Just an aluminum tube cant go wrong

would you recommend it then? See I've got the axle-back and just the drop in but I figure a intake would help out the pipes more.

I'm think a lil on the TRD side now think. I hate to say it but I think I'm turning into a TRD Junkie! BUT after this(if I get it) I wanna get the shocks/struts and that's it I think.
