I just installed the AFE intake the other night. I thought the quality was really good and it was very easy to install. But I am really not sure about it!! It is VERY loud and I really think it took away some power. I have read on other post about giving the computer a full tank of gas to let it learn the new air flow, so I will do that but I am not sure I like the noise. Normal around town driving is fine but when the revs hit 2k the sound really comes on! I may put it up for sale but will give it a chance first!

I was looking into the AFE stage 2 cai but the pics that ive seen show the box for the filter is open. I thought the AFE cai was like the Volant cai where the filter is fully enclosed. Anybody have pics of their AFE cai installed?

I recently put on my AFE Stage II kit on my 2011 Ram. Overall I am happy with it except for the fitment was off quite a bit and it took me quite awhile to get everything lined up. I had a 2009 Ram there to compare and it seems as if the 2011 airbox iabout 1-2 inches closer to the firewall which would explain the fitment issue. I also noted on the box that is is listed for 09-10 Ram's? But on AFE's website the part numbers checked out for 2011 as well. Does anyone else have any input or should I sell this and get another kit?

I like them both, Im curious as to why the afe is so much cheaper though. It's a real toss up, the afe seems to get more mixed reviews then the airaid

Got an Airraid on my white beauty

No Complaints at all, filter stays pretty clean.
Surprisingly its not to loud at all, probably because my cat back overpowers it. But definitely a good investment
