So I was in talks with AFE for their CAI R&D Program. I'm bringing my truck in tomorrow to them to get Dyno'd and get their new Intake installed. After about a week they will re-dyno the truck, and I get a free CAI system. Would anyone be interested in a group buy? I could bring it up to them tomorrow when I get there.




here's everything they currently have available for our trucks!

Taking it back to get Dyno'd again next week for the gains. This is a prototype so hence the 3D printer marks and the missing clear window. Once they do all of their tests I will get a final production model in a few months. I love the extra turbo whine sound since having this installed.

Looks like big filter. How does the butt dyno feel?

I would be. Has anyone instead Fuel System - Active Boost on their truck yet? Has it helped and what did you gain?

Because I live 10 minutes from them, and I got on their R&D program and I get the final intake for free.

There's also NO Limit Fab who makes intakes for our trucks.

Interested. You said the turbo whine is increased?

Someone else asked you about the "butt dyno". I think they are asking how does it feel with just you driving it, like can you tell a difference with you butt in the seat?

Ah, I've never heard that term before. My MPG has increased about 0.5 MPG, could be more but I've been a little harder on the pedal since lol. But I can tell that I do have a little more pep in the pickup.

New to performance mods.

Can anyone please explain to me the difference of the 2 filter choices? and why one is better than the other? I have been trying to research stuff and its hard for me to find/get. I think iv discovered that a closed CAI is better than an Open. But not sure why on that.


Also why is this one $150 more than say S&B. I would think they would be comparable in price if they are each others competition. Is it the same concept of Ford vs Chevy debate (brand preference)?
