Combined with full exhaust, intake, pulleys and ecu reflash/dyno maybe it would be worth it at this point?

Thanks in advacne

You won't get 15hp with the AFE and scoops, probably more in line with the Matt Schnell, also I had a oem replacement filter and now the AFE Stg. 2 w/ scoops. The only difference I notice over the replacement high flow filter with the AFE Stg. 2 is the sound. There is definitely more intake growl with the full setup over just a replacement panel filter.
