    They make great paper weights and whistlers................that's it.

    They have no positive gains on a fuel injected engine.

    If you have intake and exhaust it will give you a little better throttle response. U will notice that but really ur buying a whistle. I had one on my 2.7L And it sounded like i was turbo charged. I loved it lol just for that

    I have no idea what you're talking about but I do know you're wrong and I'm right.

    Even though I have yet to state any opinion on the matter.

    Make sure you put one of these emblems on there, just to balance out your carbon footprint...

    The AFe spacer adds a few scallops in front of the helical threads to get rid of the whistling... though I'm not sure if that defeats the purpose of the spacer.
