I don't want to make this personal, and I'm sure there are many that believe as doubledutyemt does. I believe it's just plain wrong.doubledutyemt said:COLD air intake is not really the issue here..the issue is getting the air into the motor in the straightest line possible. Our factory setup is full of curves. I can just about guarantee that this setup would give at least 1-2 extra MPG, plus another 5-10 HP.
The filter is actually made and designed by AEM. According to the video online it can take extreme heat and when cleaned it retains nearly 100% of its filtration characteristics - unlinke K&N.Ridgeline Crime Unit said:It uses a DRY K & N made filter.
Ridgeline Crime Unit said:I had the Brute Force Cold Air Intake installed. The first thing that I love is that the truck GROWLS now when I punch it to the floor. I love my truck, however one of the little things is that it didnt sound impressive (when trying to rev it and flaunt it y'know).
What I mean is that growl of a V8 or V6. I have never cared for the rumble from exhaust systems because they are always there. The truck is just as quiet as before unless you punch it.
Power Increase? YES!
MPG Increase? Yes, I seem to have added about 46 more miles to the tank.
if you love the throaty sound of an engine when you punch it, then you will like it. If you like the ultra quietness that you have now when you floor it, dont get it.
PS It looks awesome under the hood. It uses a DRY K & N made filter. The newer system vehicles (especially Fords) do not recommend the oiled ones due to problems with the oil eventually coating the o2 sensor.
On most Hondas you can remove the air box cover and get this sound. Honda designs the air box to quiet down this intake noise which in some cases does not allow optimum air flow and that is why aftermarket companies release redesigned intakes.Ridgeline Crime Unit said:I... the truck GROWLS now when I punch it to the floor
I considered the Comptech issue as well. 1st there still isnt one, 2nd I dont think I can convince my wife that the $2000.+ is necessary. 3rd the AEM doesnt have any consequences on my warranty.WhiteRTLnav said:I have considered the AEM intake, but one, it's pricey, and two, if Comptech comes out with their supercharger, the AEM intake will become obsolete.
