The scoops will help more than it'll hurt the car right!

We're creating the system right now actually. Mike of **********s has the only kit right now but it wasn't completely done. You see Mike's car is the test car for all the aFe Products.

The moment we get more information I'll release it!

I just picked this up yesterday and installed it. Bought them from Kevin who was great and I can tell their products are good. I also have the AFE dual intake, 40mm headlight film and the City Vision Lighting 6 LED H8 bulb for the Halo's which is a little bluish and compliments xenon's very well and no control light! I will definitely recommend Kevin and will contact him in the future.

It wouldnt make enough of a difference worth pulling a dyno. The numbers may be around 2-3whp max, maybe a lil bit of torque, but most of those gains if any would be at 40+mph due to the higher amount of air flowing. The macht schnell scoops are around the same construction, they claim it gains a few hp, etc. at 70+mph. So really, you wont see much, but it will allow a little more air into the manifold, that doesnt hurt. But if you have an open/DCI this wont do a thing.

Like I said, Macht Schnell, $80, same thing, basically bulletproof.

Hate to sound like a dick, but this is a buyers market

Scoop value package that we offer like i said before.

99.95 with a plate frame, hat, and key chain. Looks like a value to me!

Would these air scoops add any significant increase air flow to a stock system? Or would it be only a marginal improvement?

Take a look at the construction of the MS scoops in comparison also. The MS scoops have a butter-smooth inside finish for 100% air movement. These have cut edges which I would think would slow down and/or buffet the incoming air a bit.

These arent all huge ass differences here, mainly just all the reasons for which I would go with MS over aFe, honestly the hat, key chain, etc. doesnt give me reason to go with them.

I was looking at:

http://www.**********s.com/AFE-intak...i-54-11648.htm

Which shows the scoops without the other stuff for $130. I don't want the hat, keychain, and frame.

It's called competition, and it brings out the best. Those do appear to be a superior product at a better price.
