yea, any intake from 05 to 08 for your car (2.2, 2.4) will fit

your best bet for cold air intake would be the injen first and aem second. i say that just because you could run it short ram or cold air. if you want just short ram go k&n

but if you have the SAI, just refer to the above thread he stated

Injen would be the best choice for a cold air intake since it drops into your fender. If you prefer a short ram IMO the GMPP Short Ram Intake is excellent and very easy to install. I have one on my 07 SS/NA and love it. No CEL, made by GM, tested by GM and will not void your warranty. I don't think any other intakes will either but I went with GMPP to keep it all GM. With the air box mod in addition to the GMPP intake it runs very well. I stayed away from the K/N intake due to the oiled filters they use and the tendency to throw CEL.

but with k&n you dont need an "airbox mod" and i dont really care for how the gm intake sits in like "half of an intake box".

and for the record, my k&n has never thrown a cell at all in 3 years. although some do come over oiled from the factory, it is not a problem at all. it would literally have to be saturated with oil. what causes an oiled filter to throw a CEL is it being over oiled and then some of the oil gets on the MAF. clean off the MAF and clean the filter then reoil it using less oil and your golden. that is if your one of the rare people with this situation
