AFE stage 2 Si: Check

Took about an hour and a half, ended up losing an allen wrench in the process (it's not in the intake tube, i checked).
I took it for a test drive, but no noticable difference in HP or acceleration.
Heard there was supposed to be a small sucking or whooshing noise when you stomp on the gas, but seeing as how i was on residential streets, I didn't want to punch it and piss off the neighbors.
Anyone who has this intake know if there's supposed to be torque or HP gains? I know it won't be much, maybe 1-2HP at the most, but just curious
Here's some pics

Yeah most of the posts I've read said the only noticeable difference is the sound. No increase in power.

I had the exact same one, I notice some difference at around 3500 rpms. If you step on the gas, you'll notice some difference. I would put it again on my truck.

All of mine fine no problem.

As for HP gains, not so much. Just more sound.

Considering the stock intake is already a CAI, there will be virtually nothing to gain over any high-flow drop in filter... especially as it already had a fairly large surface area to start with. Looks nice though...

i know. the stock hole in the engine bay is a cool feature that came stock with the OEM intake which was Denso if I remember correctly
