afe Ram Air Scoops and high flow filter installed!!

Just installed the scoops and filter last night!! Nice quality on both items and the scoops fit right into the stock pieces so no drilling or extra work necessary The hardest part was getting the center piece of the stock pins out - but all in all it was an easy mod. Sorry no pics as I figured there are plenty of pics already posted. Driving impression is that you can hear the intake more now ( a GREAT thing) and it "feels" (but-o-meter) likes the engine revs a bit quicker (probably just the increase intake sound though). By itself, probably not a very large hp increse - but good start to add exhaust, etc. later.

Highly recommend the afe products and JLevi was great getting them to me as well
