Default Intake problem

When changing the tranny fluid I took my intake apart to get better access to the fill cap on the transmission. I noticed there are two cracks in the plastic of my intake where the filter goes inside. I'm not sure what would cause this but it looks pretty bad. My question is should I replace it with the factory parts or would I be better off to get a aftermarket cold air intake? If the aftermarket is best what are some of the cheaper options? Right now I don't want to spend a lot of money. My car has the 2.2 engine.Thanks!
