So I was wondering with all this talk of folks building their own intakes i'd ask about cheap ones purchasable on sites like ebay. What's the difference if any?

The cheap ones on eBay pretty much slap a cone filter in your engine bay. It's not very efficient. If you build you own you can get it into the fender and draw in colder air.

Agreed. Check out the sticky on the FWI.

If you have an NA a short ram or ebay intake will suffice.
But if you have an L67 you want to be sucking in a much cooler air as possible
to lower KR. ZZP cai / Wiz air cai works best because they're insulated.
But as stated FWI work just about the same.
