Afe stage 2 intake?

Anyone has this.. I'm thinking about buying this .. Is it worth it? Yes or no.. Any noticeable gains beside noise ? And what's the difference between oiled and dry filter? Thanks !

kitw measured 6rwhp throughout the rpm range, not just at peak. I have it and I did feel like the car was more "eager". For the money I think its a pretty good deal.

What modifications do you have already? Worth it depends on what you have & what you are looking for IMO.

From the Afe site

Pro5R is 5-layers of progressively finer mesh oiled cotton gauze which offers maximum airflow. This media is ideal for those who drive mostly on paved street and highway who want maximum horsepower. 2) ProGuard7 is 5-layers of progressively finer oiled cotton gauze used in the Pro5R media backed by another 2-layers of finer porosity synthetic non-woven media which offers maximum protection. This media is ideal for those who do a lot of unpaved, off-road driving in severe dusty and dirty environments where protection is more important than maximum horsepower. This media is most popular with compression-ignition diesel truck owners. 3) ProDryS is a 3-layer progressively finer porosity synthetic non-woven media, which is oil-free and offers maximum convenience since it does not require re-oiling. This media is ideal for those who donít want the hassle of re-oiling a filter

I have had it on my car for about 5,000 miles and am happy with it. The engine bay has more of a grown. Horsepower gain is not going to be huge with an air intake. I would estimate 7 ish horsepower and torque gain max.

I think I have the oiled one (the filter is blue)

I also am interested in this product Now i have a after market air filter , supersprint exhaust and a remap. Will it be worth it? Or not much difference with my filter now ?

aFe makes a solid intake system, one of the best on the market. The main difference between the dry and oiled filter is that the dry filter offers 50% better air flow over stock and offers less maintenance. The oiled filter offers 75% better air flow over stock, but it requires you to clean and re-oil the filter periodically.

I've had mine installed for about 3 months now. I can honestly say i didn't notice anything, but maybe a bit more of a sound. I also have a Gintani race rear section and Challenge street x-pipe. Would i do it again, probably so, since it wasn't that much ~$440. Also, cause i saw where kitw reported 6whp with it. I also have the dry filter.
