I think the two most popular ones are the halltech and the blackwing. I personally like the halltech because it comes with the air bridge. Im not sure you will be able to get the red air bridge with the halltech though. The red one is for 2001-2004 cars with the larger diameter intakes. The black one is for 1997-2000 with the smaller intakes.

I would recommend the Vortech cold air "Rammer". I've read that most of the other air induction systems just "sit" above the radiator shroud which, to me, would be sucking in warm/hot air. The Vortech system is actually a forced air system where you pick up cold air. You'll actually gain more HP with the cold air vs. hot air. If you decide on the Vortech system, order a pre-cut radiator shroud, it'll make installation a lot easier. Also think about a clear air box. It makes it easier to see if the filter is dirty.

Take a look at the hurricane also... comes with a new radiator shroud that's got scoops already cut into it.

The Callaway "Honker" fits and looks factory, relocates the MAF to where the C6 is and is 50 state legal, and it works :pat
