Default Intake vs Spacers

Hey guys, new to the whole mod game. Was just wondering what most of you guys use in your cars being that they're generally the same price. Anyone have personal experience with both of them? Thanks!

They work well together. CAI is usually a good start and then spacers.

Default Re: Intake vs Spacers

pretty much everyone starts off with a aftermarket intake ( CAI ) then usually move to the exhaust , Y pipe... then everyone gets power hungry and starts going wild on BOP , Spacers and light weight pulley.

yo with the spacers, you will get a whistling noise around 3k RPM and the install is challenging. the whistling noise grew on me so i actually like it.
