    Very nice. I am looking to add the AFE on my with the dry air filter. Would like to know if the dry filter is as good or better than the oiled up filters. How do the air flows compare and filtering ability compare?

    Uh oh.... heh. Man I have a drop in afe dry filter that I tried running twice. Both times it sacked my mpgs and my low end tq. I put the paper filter back in. I was sure it would help and did it the second time to just try again. Both times I gave it about 1500 miles to test. I wanted so bad for it to work too... you could really hear the woof when you stepped on it and the air flow sounded greatly increased. The other thing is you will get a loud whistle that you will hear from this waffle gasket behind the throttle body. I bought the gasket without the waffle and replaced that and no more whistle. But as I stated. Back to the paper filter and low end and mpgs are back.

    Hmm, so it was using the stock box. Sucks that it negatively impacted the mpgs and tq. Was the mpg loss because you were on the skinny peddle too much :)

    Ha actually yes... but so I could hold out speed up hills! Yes stock box, and the TRD air flow accelerator. Which probably does nothing. I do have dual exhaust though, so maybe that is why I noticed it so much. I've thought about trying a cai with the duals, but my 300 bucks is going towards a lift first.

    So with all the options has anyone been able to verify if they add any HP or MPG?

    Yes you can do it yourself. Only risky part is pulling out, protecting and reinstalling the mass air flow sensor.

    So I installed my trd intake and right away turned off. Second time it turned on stayed on but makes a whistling sound. RPM won't go below 1 .5 is this normal?

    leveling kit, (3" front, 1" back) after mkt wheels, carpet kit, bed cover, tinted window visiors, S&B air intake, Sylvania ultra headlight bulbs, Nokya Artic White fog bulbs, Spyder LED tail lights, 320 lumen reverse light bulbs, 275 65 20 Michelins.
    just installed the S & B after problems (CEL) with the aFe Momentum. Returned aFe Momentum to Realtruck.com for full refund, $425. They have been awesome BTW.
    S & B installed relatively easily and no CEL...yet. Need to drive a few more days to know if all is kosher. Initially, it makes quite a howl when you punch it. Pretty quiet when your not on the throttle. Very quiet if you leave the plug in. S & B recommends leaving it out unless the outside temp. is high, i.e. 90 degrees and up.
    Paid $300 for S & B. Not sure why aFe thinks there product is worth $125 more??
    Will post again after a few more days driving.
