AEM Air Intake Systems are designed to produce massive horsepower and torque gains as well as better engine sound when used as a replacement for the factory airbox and air filter. AEM intake systems are designed, tuned, and dyno-tested to fit specific cars and trucks. These air intakes usually include an oversized AEM Dryflow synthetic washable air filter for outstanding air flow, filtration, and performance while allowing easy oil-free cleaning. Most AEM intake systems use mandrel-bent aluminum intake tubes, powder coated heat shields, and high quality hardware designed to reduce restriction and reduce intake temperature. The design and components of each intake system vary so consult the installation instructions for more information on the contents of each part number. AEM manufactures a variety of intake kit styles including short ram intakes, cold air intakes, dual-chamber intakes, Brute Force intakes for trucks and SUV's, and Brute Force HD intakes for diesel applications.

Bob MacHaffie from North Ft. Myers, Florida
September 23, 2016 - Part 21-8100DC
Ordered from AutoAnything and shipment was on time. I had reviewed the installation instructions a few times, plus a few youtube videos prior to starting my own, but here are a few observations: Most parts have some type of part no. or measurement (banded hose clamps, but the instructions never referenced them at all. May make it tough for the weekend mechanic to figure out. Bolt and nut callout for the MAF sensor housing, and gasket was wrong, calling for the nyloc nut, vs the serrated nut. Qty and the fact the nut was an SAE, vs the M6 was a dead giveaway. Should have given the warning not to touch MAF sensor when removing from stock ducting, as that will ruin it. A good suggestion would have been to clean throttle body, as well as the MAF sensor, while the system is apart. I had planned to do that anyway, with the appropriate cleaners. Operation after installation was completed, took truck out for test run and it was considerably quicker in the low to mid range of accel and torque. Definitely sounds like its getting more air, so whole project was a success.
