Airaid or afe?

Leaning towards afe I really like the look of it but what would be the difference between the two?

Re: Airaid or afe?

I recently added an afe CAI Stage 2 set-up. My gas mileage immediately improved. This added to the Borla Touring exhaust provide a really nice growl especially in 2nd and 3rd gear when jumping on it.

I have to admit for the short term I really like the sound more than the mileage performance.

Dang! That looks really good! Did you get the axle back or cat back?

On the Borla Touring exhaust I got the axle back set-up. Along with the afe CAI it has a real nice growl.

americanmuscle.com is the best by far!

If not them, late model restoration is good.

Haha no joke, I have been checking the site out regularly. I just didn't know if there were any other good sites. Thinking about an aem CAI, borla long tube headers, high flow cats, to the borla ataks, then a spec stage 3 clutch. After that suspension, and after my warrenty is done supercharging it.

Hmm That does suck. If the link Nick posted up doesn't suit you try lethal performance they are good but they charge shipping. And the afe looks pretty cool.
