You won't find much love for AEM filters here, most people have either K&N or S&B Powerstack. The S&B is sold through our sponsor MP Racing, it's what I currently have on my CAI and it does a great job.

It's funny you said that, because there was a banner for AEM in the ad section at the top of the page when I read this.

K&N of S&B FTW!

Not a fan of AEM filters at all.

does anyone know if you can buy the S&B filter from MP racing by itself?

I've thought about trying out those AEM dry flow filters myself but haven't gotten around to it. My buddy has a bmw with an intake system on it that has a crappy foam filter and I'm thinking about getting him an AEM filter for that and seeing how it works.

I know this comment won't go over well, but I'm going to say it anyway. I don't really see the point of putting an aftermarket cold air intake on a Ram Air equipped car. I have a crappy, low flow NAPA filter in my factory airbox. I let the car idle for about 10 minnutes doing diagonistics on it once (no cold air flowing through the ram air) and noticed the air intake tempature sensor was reading 50 degrees (F) on a day that it was 40 degrees outside. When you put an open cone where the air box once was your getting heat off the exhaust mannifold that runs through there and when the car is moving your also getting all that hot air thats being pushed through the radiator. The only spot for cold air to get throuh the front of the car would be the old Ram Air ducts arround the Pontiac dart out front, and with the Ram Air duct removed, they lead to the HOT radiator.

I guess the only advantage would be a straighter shot for the air to go to get into the intake manifold, but the factory setup is pretty straight.

Do you know what a cold air intake is and why it's called a COLD air intake?

Oh wow.... lets fix this...


First, the factory setup is anything BUT straight. Open it up and take a look. The bottom of the air box has two inlets. One for the "ram air" which isn't really sealed up and doesn't get any real pressure from the front so it doesn't ram anything, and another that goes into the fender well behind the headlight. On the stock setup this is where the real cold air comes from. The ram air is just a gimmick.

Look at how many 90 degree turns it has to make though. Several going into the box, then up through the filter, then to the left. And the inside of the box and the MAF tube is covered in plastic grid work and ribbing that is meant to deflect sound waves and quiet down engine noise... but also create turbulence and slow down air velocity. The stock setup is NOT meant for power.


The intake setup you described is called a warm air intake (WAI), where it has a short tube with the filter in the engine bay. This style can pick up some air velocity at the top end and make more peak HP than stock, but has the heat disadvantage mentioned so it's not good on hot days or when the car isn't moving.

A cold air intake (CAI) has a longer tube going into the fender well like the stock air box. It draws only cold air, while also having a smoother path for the air for less restriction and more velocity. CAI's typically pick up about 10hp on the dyno.
