I had both and prefer AFE.

I had Injen at first. Too noisy. Like annoyingly noisy, in my opinion. Made me feel like im back in my friend's riced out civic back in high school. Heavy since it's aluminum. High peak torque but only at very small rpm range.

AFE makes just enough noise, that is, in sport. Lightweight. Even power distribution through-out rpm range. Cheaper than injen.

I confirm Injen is louder since my friend has AFE but about ricy thing it's only opinion me & my friend agreed Injen sound perfect and better than AFE in terms of response it does give a sharper response, idk about AFE but ilike how the torque is from very low rpm !

Depends on what you are looking for.
As mentioned above Injen is louder than AFE.
