SS Inductions is the brand. You can get a Growler Kit or a Big Mouth.
The Growler will replace your hole airbox whereas I THINK the Big Mouth only replaces the snorkel.
Growler will cost $600 RRP and the Big Mouth $400.

Look into buying the lower half of an XR6 Turbo airbox with the secondary snorkel and a larger primary snorkel. It'll be much cheaper than going SS Inductions and unless your chasing big numbers it's more than enough.

I just looked at these:

Obviously buying it off the internet or knowing someone will get it for you a lot cheaper. The Growler is better than the Big Mouth but both do pretty much exactly the same thing when it comes to a almost stock NA. Both give slightly better response time, a much deeper engine rev (like the VTEC air intake sound but not quite as aggressive), when around the mid to high revs you can also hear them sucking (kind of like a vacuum cleaner sound) and gives your exhaust a deeper overall sound.
I have an Autotecnica pod filter with a stainless steel airbox shaped to fit the passenger headlight (model specific) which only cost me $100 and I can defiantly say it ticks all the boxes above.

:lol: yeah it is cheaper sometimes but you still have to do your home work as somethings arnt cheaper once you add shipping and stuff onto price. i cant believe there are people out there that still havent used ebay, just remeber to use pay pal to buy stuff as you get 45 days to make a claim if something goes wrong (never had anything go wrong yet touch wood)
