2016 study. It's worth a 5 minute read, and one wants to read the whole thing as the net of the tests in the latter half of the paper show what one wants to know. PDF of the paper is attached.
So what is the best alternative to DCI for those making 500 - 600 horsepower ? I doubt any version of the factory air box set up would be able to keep up ... or could it?
I have the Afe intake (Not the momentum but the first ones with a closed lid) and cant say ive had any issues with it other than the fact it is a little noisier than stock. It has the dry element in it.
The AFe dry filter is better than OEM paper I believe, in flow and dust catching. Certainly that filter has more surface area. I don't get, though, why it was sucking in hot air? And how do you determine that, if I may ask?That's what I took out of my car. I never had 'issues' other than far too much noise and the fact it was sucking in hot air.
