Cheaper Cold Air Intake?

I've been scouring the internet trying to find a cold air intake for the cobalt that isn't going to break the bank. Spending over $250 for a CAI for minimal gains seems a little ridiculous to me. Do any of you happen to know of a cheaper CAI?

No tune necessary for a CAI, but you may get a P0171 from time to time. Find a used local one. One member not too long ago found a clean K&N for $40.

Save your money and buy the whole thing in one go. They really aren't expensive, not even new. I paid $220 for my Injen on eBay. Try Craigslist.
