They look pretty similar. The injen appears to be a one a piece unit.
Who’s got experience with these?

I will. I'm hoping to get these installed soon. I just installed my Tanabe springs and FSB along with my TWM short shifter. I'm trying to get caught up on all of my car projects.

I detailed my 2017 RAV4 a few days ago and yesterday I detailed my 2006 Scion xB. She has never looked so good in the 5 years I've owned it. The shine is insane in person.

I bought the DC Sports one because I'm hoping that the 2-piece design will be more flexible.

Injen is definitely better quality. DC Sports is owned by Pilot Automotive which sells their cheap aftermarket parts at OReilley. It was a bummer when AEM sold DC to Pilot. I ordered the Injen and it will be here tomorrow. Wish AEM had a CAI for the iM.

Questions about the mod

I was curious to know if it is 100% necessary to run a tube from the connection (bottom of air box) once the mod is complete, or is it possible to just leave the connection wide open straight from the air box? Also was curious if an aftermarket drop-in filter was necessary for sound/power improvement?

I have a washable aftermarket drop-in filter on my wife's xB. Even if it is not a huge power change, it at least reduces the cost of buying a new filter all the time.

When I first had the car before I got an open-intake I removed all the accordion stuff on the intake but still left a portion of the air tube in place

I have the Injen, it's install is a bit of a bitch, taking off the bumper is the easiest way due to the baffles behind the bumper designed to keep noise down. Injen's goes straight down that hole, which means you have to take everything out, but all in all I love it, the way it sounds.

I thought that I had posted pics of this but I hadn't. I installed the DC Sports CAI and ceramic 4-2-1 header. With the DNA exhaust, JET MAF, and Quantum Solenoids. This has transformed my car, what a difference. The power increase is fantastic. I haven't had it on the dyno yet but I'm loving it. I took a 4550-mile road trip on back roads with elevations up to 12' feet and even at altitude it pulls the passes great.
