AEM Cold Air Intake

Are any of you guys running an AEM cold air intake? If so how would it compare to the AFE stage 2? I am kinda stuck between the 2 and need a little feedback. Thanks........

Hey what's goin on man, i'll chime in. I've got an AEM on my Cummins. I like it a lot, it's looks very nice under the hood. I'm not sure how well they perform on any Powerstrokes but I am willing to bet that it will do just as well. It went on quick, fit very well and man does it whistle! Plus it's a lot cheaper than the AFE kits. Check out e-bay, you can find pretty good deals on there.

Thanks for the input, I just know I have not heard much conversation on the AEM intake, just kinda curious. There is a big price difference that is for sure. What I like about the AEM is the metal tube, it just looks cool under the hood.

Yes it does look really nice. I've had some people try to tell me it absorbs heat and causes IAT to rise, but that's a crock. I've ran my truck hard a couple of times to generate heat then stopped right away and felt the tube - cool to the touch even the spot that is closest to the exhaust manfiold (mine's on a Cummins) Yours may be different as the hood of a PSD is much more packed, and your tube runs across the top of the engine as well. But I would bet it's a heck of a lot cooler air than stock.

brooksmotorsports,

Some of the Dodge guys have reported a loss of boost PSI with the AEM's, sounds like restriction to me.

I have a dodge, I didn't lose any boost at least from what I noticed.

just installed the AEM Bruteforce on my 2000 powerstroke. first off you should pri just throw out the instructions because the pictures werent even the same as my truck so that was confusing. then i had to do some custom modifications to the battery box because the filter would not fit inside the fender. i finally got it to fit but i had to slide the filter on farther then its suppose to be because it kept sliding off. after all is said and done it was a horrible fit. it looks pretty cool and you should hear this thing when you let off the throttle. swweeet. id say spend a lil more money unless price is the issue though.

That's odd, perhaps they mispackaged it for another year or something. Mine fit like a glove

The AFE will certainly work muce better because it's not a 'dry' element style of filter. It will allow more air to flow through. The AEM is kinda like asking your engine to pull air through a paper bag.
