I love mine. Very nice filter.
If you are looking for one of the "louder" intakes, this is not for you though.

I have installed it. but i prefer HKS ONE. But I think AEM is not easy to get the water inside(there is a box)...But i dont know it is good or not

buy an AEM cone filter and slap it on the three inch pipe once you pop off that stock are box and save yourself A LOAD of cash.
:iagree:

I don't have the aem intake, but if I had to do it over again I would have just stuck with the cone filter on the stock setup. its quick, cheap and gives a you a nice sound.

I tried this and it could have just been the filter I used but it sounded like CRAP!!! when I would just bee cruzing along doing 60-80km... I had this almost droning noise like there was somthing rubbing in my engine bay... but I did get better fuel economy ahah if that counts for anything

thats it???

so buy the aem cone filter and keep the filter exposed n it yields the same result?
I can't vouch for numbers, but doing this and replacing your turbo inlet with a hard pipe or silicone is about everything I can think to increase air flow there (without increasing diameter, MAF etc. which muffs up your AFR's without a tune). Heat shielding is another issue, though.

the suction one that looks like a yellow mushroom? If so, tell me how you like it once you get it. I haven't heard much about it.
