    seems with that big hole and all that the air your engine will be getting may actually be warmer that the OEM intake

    that seems like it'll bring in more hot air then cold air vs. the stock intake

    Yes, the MAF has to be that way. The tube can't be rotated because it is also the mount for the engine cover. Also, I'm not concerned about the slightly warmer air over stock. There will be a whole lot more of it. As for water... also not concerned. Don't blast puddles no mo.

    That thing isnt going to do anything for performance except less weight by making your wallet lighter.

    I'm not really expecting any noticeable power increase, but I know from having similar setups on a Jeep it seems to help with throttle response. One drive so far (with the new exhaust) and it "feels" better, but that could also be the back-o-the-brain too :)

    As for this compared to K&N... not a fan of them or their build quality. The heat "shield" on this AEM is thick, heavy steel. No cardbonium.

    Psssst. Don't look now. There's a big hole in the heat shield.:eek:

    >>>> Back on track... >>>>

    So to the naysayers, I drove the truck up into the mountains this evening after hooking up my new PLX Kiwi. Outside temp was listed as 70°F, intake temp list as 78.8°F. I think less than 10 degrees warmer is negligible at best. I'm sure it would be a higher delta while going slow, but I don't really care 'bout that!

    Didn't have the ODBII reader before I put the intake on. But it can't be below ambient :)
