    I've been running the AFE CAI with their add on air scoop for a year or so now. Pro-GUARD 7 filter. I think it sounds great, I no longer deal with snow getting packed in the factory airbox, and the washable filter is nice. Horsepower and added fuel economy, probably no :confused:

    This was after one trip in the desert following other rigs. Spotless inside the air tube. I assume that there are more free-flowing filter options from AFE and other manufacturers, but I'm more interested in clean air.

    2 dyno pulls isn't enough to gather information that the intake actually did anything. You can have 3 different dyno pulls on the exact same car and they can register different readings. If you had the mean of your baseline and compared it to the mean after the intake then you might try see if there is a statistic when comparing the two.

    If people want to spend their money for some vroom and maybe some performance I say go for it. But for me, I'll pass. I've been putting on intakes on almost every car I've owned the last 20 years except for this one. Just not worth it. Especially ones that are oil-based like k&ns.
