    I can't read any of those numbers on the graphs. Really is a good idea to go ahead and post the numbers in the body of the message. Anyone help me out? Stock numbers vs CAI numbers? Thanks.

    i installed the tune and we did a pass. the torque came on real fast and peaked around 203 but it was pinging so i didnt post it. the thing breathes so good!, with the tune it was just too much and it was pinging like crap so i removed it. i had had the tune done about a week befor the guys at AFE offerd me the prototype. and we removed the tune for the test. i was looking forward to installing the tune but ill have to wait till tuesday. i said it before if i had installed this kit before i got the tuner i may not have bought the tuner. the CAI works that good!

    ok so here is the lates. just talked to the guy at AFE he said that the kit will not come with the cover like mine just a rubber gasket like the others to save money. MSRP will be about 199.99 but we should be able to find it cheeper on line. also they will be coming out with a stage 1 unit with the tube in the future and it will have the cover. so ill try to get more info as it comes.

    So for those who want to retune, is it better to go with this model and like a SCT2, or is this model better one it's own. (ie: would be better to go with another brand of CAI for a complimentary retune to go wit it)

    K&N CAI & SCT2 vs. AFE CAI & SCT2
