lol "cool air" meaning heat soaked directly by the engine, correct? I like my typhoon right now, and have no problems with it. But I'm not going to discredit the aem one. I honestly plan on buying it next spring and trying it for myself.

and yes the same debate has been going on forever, never really know which ones better... but back to ops question... did you ever decide which system to go with?

yeah, thats why the short rams show 10 hp and the true cools show 4 (down by the fender) no real driving simulation air down there....

This is correct, but partially. Focusboy58 is also running headers and a 3" exhaust, and has always dyno'ed strong from the beginning. Not to discount AEM's part in the system though. This is why I want to see an intake-only comparison to OEM to see what it adds.

And yeah I know, I was going to add that but I didn't want to confuse him.

That's cool. Someone mentioned trying to get 200 HP out of a CAI, cat-back and tune, and it got crazy for a while
