Or who makes the biggest lie........ beware of big hp claims. I will believe a big number when people baseline their cars, add the CAI, and get the same numbers as the vendor claims. There are lies, damned lies, and what are some of the biggest lies of all, claimed CAI whp gains.

The guy at AEM said he expects the Injen to make more HP, but that the AEM doesn't mess up the fuel trims and risk throwing a CEL.

He said that he was able to make more power with some designs but the fuel trims were too far out of norms.
Basically, it is where AEM decided to put the Mass Airflow Sensor as opposed to where Injen will put it, making the computer to go to a leaner or richer setting. Other factors are going to be equal.

I would recomend the AEM CAI, they rarely have problems and the gains are still pretty good, and the sound, oh the sound the make.

Is AEM going to make a short ram intake too, or just the full CAI? I read somewhere that the CAI for the MZ6 is an exact fit to the new MZ3. How true this is, I don't know

Well anything that fits the 6's four cyl will fit ours (they're the same...), but the physical space in the engine bay may not let them fit, if you get what I mean. If the gains we see are like those of the injen 6i dyno posted (6.8 whp, 8 lb ft I believe) then I'll be very happy, since an intake did jack on my old car.

As far as feeling 6.8 whp, you would need a very sensitive ass. From experience, anything under 15 whp, you are not going to notice it. Some of you will have better gains by going onto a diet. Other factors such as the 19in bling bling wheels, 50lbs subwoofer, and all the other crap people like to put onto the car will slow it down.

I would not argue with you there, but you will notice the difference in your track times before and after. And if there is a guy you have raced before and after you will see the difference. I think one of the most appealing things about a CAI is the sound that it makes too. It is by far the best BPU you can do to any car.

FunkyFreshMonkey,

BPU= Basic Performance Upgrade

I= Intake
H= Header
E=Exhaust

Those are a few examples. I have seen people use C=Cams.. but Cams arent really considered a basic upgrade or bolt on...
