Any dual cone intake is a way for your car to lose low-end torque. Install a DCI and watch your low-end vanish because of the high IATs in city traffic. I had the Injen intake which was very nice to look at, looks a lot better than the AFE. But the car was even more sluggish than with the stock intake in city traffic so I built myself a "Mr. 5" intake which is a sort of Dinan intake. Much better !

Keep your Dinan intake...it's the best intake you could have.
