This is why I am sure that the AEM must be getting more. There are no runners to have to deal with (or even a box, for that matter). Obviously, without back to back graphs by a trusted member I will still have an amount of skepticism, but If I can get those numbers on the stock intake runners...

Ill chime in :D AEMs numbers are off. You can expect the same gains on a dyno from AEMs system and even more power when your actually forcing air to it at driving speed. Still waiting on a Tune so I can adjust AFRs and advance timing for Premium.. But I just changed platforms... I hope you guys arent mad for betraying the Focus but I was unimpressed to say the least with the ST I had on order.

Nothing wrong more like to much alike for me to justify another fwd car especially another focus. Even st3 its just way to similar. Tuned my 2012 will make 200+ and still get 38-42mpg at 70 or more. I also have out grown the platform ive been with it since 2001.
