The reason why I'm asking. I'm getting the AEM longtube. A buddy of mine has the injen longtube and the borla and his car is quieter than mine with the iceman and borla.

Any insight???

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I have no idea but I can tell you this.

A fellow 808 Focaljetter (WingsWestZTS) has the AEM CAI on his automatic and it's pretty loud. Louder then his Borla exhaust system.

I have an Iceman CAI put on before the Vibrant went on my car. The CAI didn't make any type of sound. It's as if I still had my stock intake setup.

IMO, the Iceman sucks as it just replaces the stock tubing and still utilizes the stock air box. Stock air box = restriction! I only recommend the AEM CAI. Remember...that's my recommendation.


Need I say more?

I have the AEM and it does sometimes get louder than my exhaust. Sounds nice though.

My Iceman/FS cool flo gets louder than my exhaust by far at high rpms...Any cone filter style intake will be way louder than Ice Man

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">ANy setup where the cone filter is in the engine bay is going to be loud

I went from Iceman/Coolflo to AEM.
it's a lot quieter than my iceman/CF version but the gains feel the same

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Ray..thanx man. I shuld have thought about this. I will still check it out and see if everything went ok. But let me tell you...I couldn;t believe when I saw the instructions that AEM send. Words missing, illustrations that were supposed to be there weren't. But the customer service was pretty good.
