Airaid looks like a good kit but it is just the end not the while tube. The stock tube is smooth on the inside anyway so running it wont hurt. Honestly though an intake wont give you much more power if everything else is stock.
I did look at the airaid one and considered it but I like having a new tube for it as well. My engine isn't stock, I already have dual exhaust, programmer and plugs done so i figure next logical/affordable step is the intake, and possibly throttle body spacer but ive heard mixed opinions on those as well.
This AFE system looks nice too.
