The intake you have on it now is the best you will find under $1000. The ones you mention increase power only at very high rpm, and too little to notice, while decreasing fuel economy, more in the winter. They may also not have water drains, endangering your engine when you go through puddles. A friend at work put a K&N intake on his Scion (which caused him a check engine light when he was on the freeway) and after about a year he drove through water that was deeper than he thought it was, causing a thrown rod. He sold the car as-is and barely a year later the new buyer killed the replacement engine the same way. For an independent view, check the source.

The factory intake flows way more than the 4.6L will EVER require in stock form. It makes perfect sense that it would, too.
