Hey all- Installed an AEM....

CAI or SRI, whatever you prefer. It rules!!!!!

I figured I would get that instead of the TRD one because it seems a bit better.

Nice growl, still cvt rockin the low rpms but def breathing better and once she gets going, she has top end speed for days. A bit more fun to drive. Still pretty quiet until you really rev it too.

FYI

Cheers-Chris

Ok. Color me skeptical about the use of CAIs on what I would consider run of the mill engines. But looking at the web link and the dyno chart, this intake may be worth it. Many CAI manufacturers will make claims but won't have dyno charts to prove it. This one does. While I still consider the boost in torque and HP to be moderate to somewhat minor, the overall increase in both across the entire RPM band is pretty darn good. I may be investing in one myself.

I'd consider adding this, plus this... https://www.concept3performance.com/...daae9a18&_ss=r There are Youtube videos and user reviews I've seen to back this up. Please don't kill the messenger.

Every little bit helps when it comes to the USNA CHR.

Pacem,

Striker

It is def. still the same motor. The CVT still does it's thing. Is it more fun to drive minus the sound? Yep.

Huh. Never heard of changing a solenoid. That's some impressive gains if true.

Here's a Forged Garage video on it. No hard evidence, just a very positive review.


He seemed very happy with the performance gains. For air though, he's only added a K&N replacement air filter. So your performance should be better with the AEM CAI.
