Which brand is my CAI?

Can anybody tell me what brand my CAI may be? It came on my truck and I would like to replace the filter and would also like to know for myself. I thought or was hoping it was an AFE, but I can't match the design to any manufactures products AFE, Volant, Airraid, etc. The inlet dia. is 6" and overall length of the filter is 7.5" + 1" for the flange.

Does not look like a major brand.

Most major brands are sealed units or have a box that seals to the hood to block hot air from the filter.

I dont like all those worm clamps on the tubing, nor do i like how the intake doesnt seal off. And the filter looks like a POS.

Since you know the size of the filter you should be able to buy a relacement fairly easy, however i would check into maybe buying a new CAI, or working on the existing to make it better.

ALSO: if it IS a major brand, i am 100% certain they would put their name on the product somewhere....

Yep, a top quality pile of EBAY is what I thought, just didn't want to admit it. Looks like I am ordering an S&B tonight! If anyone has anything against S&B, please feel free to suggest a better one. Thanks

Oh yeah, I may have a great POS EBAY CAI for sale!

I dont have experience with S&B, but i run an AFE and love it! easy to install, easy to clean, and the truck seems to love it too! (although i dont know what truck wouldnt eat up a good aftermarket intake)
