Most will tell you to keep the stock intake. It flows MORE than enough air, and traps dirt much better.

I still have my stocker. But when I find a good deal I will be buying a S&B intake. It wont do much for performance, but it will make filters easier to change and let the turbo sing a little louder to me!

Idk about Injen intakes but I run a S&B on mine and like it. I noticed a difference in initial take off power and throttle response.

I'm running the Banks. I bought it off of a wrecked truck and got a helluva deal on it. It was only a couple of months old when the truck was totaled. I would buy it again. If for no other reason, it comes off like a well made piece and goes back on the same.

I did the drop in because most of the CAI's that I saw in 2006 replaced the air box with, guess what, ANOTHER BOX! When I took the front cover off I found 2 things, it was easier to take out of the truck (still a PITA, but easier), and that i picked up 1~1.5 mpg in town. That should answer which method pulls more air.

I looked at Injen Technology's CAI, ever thought about using Spectre's DIY CAI kit from your local auto parts store? It wouldn't be aluminum, but it would smooth out the air flow. You could put your OEM MAF sensor in with some epoxy.
