I've had mine on for about 2 weeks now and haven't gottin any CELs. The only problem with mine is that the MAF rubs the underside of the hood a little. Nothing major.

I have the Injen GenIII and I never had a problem with it. No CELs for over 6k miles.

The problem with the first two generations was that the cone filter was a little too big and the design of the heatshield did not optimize the flow of the air. Now those things have been corrected and no problems at all.

mine is a gII with no problems for about 8 or 10 thousand miles. i believe it to have slowed the car though--do not buy injen unless you are planning to install some sort of AFC as well...

I talked with Phil at Injen along time ago and he told me that the differences in between the Intakes are the actual pipe diameter and sensor location. But if you want to get any real power out of the intake you will need an S-AFC.
