Is anyone out there using this intake? If so, have you dyno'd it? Did placing the sensor directly into the tube create any issues with air/fuel?

I plan on selling a comparable part, but am unsure if it really works well.

Can anyone help?

I've had my AEM intake for about 3 months now and I love it. It gave a great power increase and really opened up the intake side of the engine. Dyno proof...i dont have them scanned, but I got 6HP and 6lb-ft at peak. Here is SCC's dyno graph of theirs, it looked a little like mine.
They also said they were unsure of their dyno's accuracy below 3000, which is true of all dynos i guees....so...

You dont get nearly the same amount with a hot air intake. Due to lack of anyone acutally dynoing any other intakes, he's the company dyno for focus sport for the cool flo, we all know to never believe a "biased" dyno too.

Thanks guys, this is good info - sounds like the drop the sensor into the tube deal works ok... I was worried about the sampling tube being off, and the loss of the venturi effect from not having a a hourglass shape in the tube as well.

This warrants me doing the intake as planned...
