mopar, spectre, 3rd strike ????

Hey guys Im in the market to replace the volant "intake" my truck came with when i bought it and I have noticed that the Mopar Performance, Spectre, and 3rd strike are all very, very similar in appearance. What gives? The mopar unit is over $400 and the Spectre is only like $150. If all three are made by the same manufacturer then why not buy the cheapest?

The 3rd Strike intake is manufactured for 3rd Strike. Not the same as the others.

All three look suspiciously similar. I love Mother Mopar but I aint payin her an extra $250 for the same damn unit. I have looked all over at pics and man are they close, just seem to be diferent colors or finishes.

They are all similar because it's a design that works well. They are not all made by the same mfr. The ones I know of that use this same design are:

Mopar
3rd Strike
AEM Brute Force
Fram Boost 2 (this one may actually be made by AEM because it uses the same DriFlo filter)
A few eBay knock-offs (though the filters are sometimes such poor quality as to be unusable).

3rd Strike has a great price on top quality components, and Duane stands behind his stuff.

Hmmm. Well I guess I would like an open element unit that will pull the coolest air possible with the lowest price . I know , I know. I really dont think this Volant / hemi hat configuration is doing much for me.
