I am glad to hear that the AFE worked out well for you. That is the one I am def. going to get. I also have plans for the diablosport predator but that may be a while. I think I read on another thread that one of the guys noted a good 10 degree drop in temP jus by having the intake tube dropped down behind the bumper. I can imagine mine would be at least that good if not better.

I spoke with a couple guys from American Racing Headers and they were morons..best offer they gave me was $1,585 shipped..that's with cats, so it's like I paid $190 more to get cats on mine. I think we both got burnt. For the gains we get, they should be no more than $700-$800 tops.

Sometimes I regret getting the aFe cause most people seem to agree that the design sucks..but the dyno numbers on the aFe were higher than any other CAI, and the real world results that I have seen on my truck were fantastic. I read on a different forum that a guy replaced his aFe with a Vararam and he noticed a decrease in power and he ended up going back to aFe.

Great way to add something that will add performance! I was thinking of doing something with that thing, probably just a light bar, but better than nothing right?
