For what its worth. I AFE COI and it made the turbo whistle more. Mileage, I dont know. I can go through a tank a day and dont have time to figure it out. Im always in dusty conditions too with no problems. Overall Im very happy with the AFE.
I love my AFE MegaCannon. I put it on last week along with the MP-8 and I can definitely hear the turbo now. I haven't had a chance to listen to any other intakes but I don't think you would be dissappointed with the AFE. As far as MPGs, no hand calc yet but on a 290 mile trip my overhead ended up at 20.8 after resetting at the start of the trip. This was also with the MP-8 on about 75% so that really doesn't help you out much lol. By itself the intake won't make much if any difference mpg wise, but it will add to the effectiveness of a box or programmer. Sorry for the long windedness haha
Performance wise, they are all the same, The turbo can only compress so much air. I've got a AFE as well, it's a nice intake, just $$$ for what it is. The stage 2 dry filter works well, I do get a slight dust coating in the intake tube after about 10K miles. you biggest benefit is going to be something that has a heat shield.
i got the AIRAID stage II put on about a week ago, really hapy with the results!!! the turbo is ALOT louder now, actually i dont now if its because i have the 4.10 rear end but at 65-75 mph the turbo sound is actually anoying!! and i knoe dont get me wrong i really like to here the turbo but i need the radio up 3/4 of the way to fad it out??? dont know anywas i would try the airaid but from what ive seen their all preaty mutch equal!!
Hey ReneeRN, do a search on Icebox cold air intake. You get your choice of filter and also you get to choose what color of powder coating you want. Also they are made in the USA!!!:thumbsup For more info contact jbarker, he is my sales rep.
