Cobalt SS - 2.4L Cold Air Intakes

So i'm looking to add a cold air intake to my non-supercharged cobalt ss. Just curious, for brands like K&N, JDM, AEM, and Injen, theyre all looking like $300-350.
Is this reasonable? Is it worth it?

Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks

No and No. Mine was around $200 and I thought that was ascinine for the gain you get. Search ebay for the lowest price, otherwise ZZP has a tubing replacement and then you get a K&N drop in filter.

What does a K&N drop in look like? How much is it? And do you get that same kind of hiss sound when shifting from it?

It looks the same as your filter now but made better and you never have to replace it

Or just rip out the silencer and do the drop in. Sound wont be as loud, but still there.
