So looking at either this one or cts cai, but I'm worried about what people
Are saying with the cracking? Common issue with this intake?

I wouldn't pick CTS just because of their customer service. Their products aren't terrible, but their service sucks.

Here's how to clean AEMs dry filter, which seems similar to other dry filters. Just different cleaning product :

I haven't had any cracking issues yet. I have 034 SD mounts so reduces quite a bit of engine movement.

I know the procedure I just want to know what product to use to clean it. I'm sure a degreaser or detergent in a bucket will work instead of buying a relabeled K&N degreaser.

Any issues with cracking on the newer brackets? Did that solve the issue, or are people still having problems? Would like to pick one of these up soon.

Mine's been going strong. I'd frankly be surprised if the beefed-up replacement bracket failed. It is plenty stout.

Just picked up the IE Intake to replace my Carbonio Stage 1 and 2.

Holy shit, I am in love! I've always complained that the Carbonio was quiet, but it's hard to really judge how loud an open air is through videos and didn't know if the cost was worth it or if it was only going to be a minor increase.
Nope, shit's loud AF!

The turbo spool and intake breathing is just off the charts loud, and the blow off/diverter closing is as loud as, or louder than, the forge adapter ring, but with none of the drawbacks associated with losing boost between shifts

If you want a loud intake, pick this up, I am in ricer heaven right now
