Finally installed my new intake

Order the AFE Stage 2 intake last week. Had time to install it this past weekend. Install was very simple, took about 30-45 minutes (way easier than my old hemi was). Overall decently impressed for it being my only performance mod so far. Its noticeably louder, and gained about 1-1.3 mpg on the lie-o-meter.

Was supposed to get my exhaust and tuner installed this past week, but things happen, so hopefully i will get that soon!

I'd take that box out of there and let it be more open. It is nice to see one of these with an AFE everything else has an S&B.

It will flow plenty of air how it is. My S&B is sealed off completely so I get the coldest air possible. The inlet in your fender is actually behind the passenger headlight, between battery and fender. Hence I know when I drag race at a track, that headlight is coming out!

Cold air intakes don't do much if anything for turbo vehicles. At least that't what I have been reading and researching. Compressing air only heats up which will make it not very useful.

Yes, it will get hot again. It's not about actual COLD air, it's about allowing more volumetric air flow... BUT I can't help but think every little bit helps as far as temps, cold air is more dense. To what degree I don't know. I guess you could also argue that without a box allows for less restriction and although hotter it allows more airflow (albeit less dense). Without actually bench testing I guess it's hard to have a substantial conclusion.

How much of that "whoosh" sound do you get with yours? My truck almost sounds like it has a BOV now.

Airflow is key on a CAI for your turbo's surviving

Couldn't tell you. Usually I drive with the stereo cranked. What can I say, I like my back roads, windows down, country up!

Mine makes the sound pretty noticeable now. Seems like it reduced some of the turbo lag as well. Not huge but did improve the get up and go somewhat so I'm happy.
