Minimal difference. Mostly just sound. Injen is supposed to perform the best, but it's such a small difference. Lotta people using the CT-E icebox too.

This doesn't get alot of press but for the price it's a really good option, maybe the best. You can also swap out the dc filter for a larger filter and velocity stack.

I have the CTE box and it's also a great option - read more about intakes here

I have the CT-E Icebox in my 2007 TSX, and was going to do some filter maintenance on it soon (or at least check on the filter).

It's not the OEM air filter, right? If I wanted to replace the filter, I'd need this?

But, like the K&N filters, it's meant to be cleaned, washed, and reused, right? I should be able to use the K&N cleansing stuff I already have somewhere, right? No need to double-dip to get the CT-E specific stuff?
