What's the best air filter I can buy? I want to make a CAI but i don't know what kinda filter to get. I saw steel ones on ebay, but i dont know anythign about them. Someone said that cone intakes ruin your engine or something? Please list the filter name and usual price. Thanks!

Cone filters are fine if (a) you keep them clean and oiled properly and (b) they don't get damaged by engine movement or impact with objects (e.g. rocks, parking curbs etc), resulting in openings in the filter media. There are many types and sizes; K&N are one type...look in any compact car magazine for other examples.

Of more concern with a CAI is liquid water ingestion because the filter hangs too low. Standing water puddles can jeopardize the engine with this type of setup.
