The AFE was a little quiter which was okay with me but 1000 miles later on the AFE its getting progressively louder and louder...
I cleaned the BMS when I first bought it with the K&N cleaner. So yup.. clean from the very beginning and it got dirty as hell after 2k miles..
Before I could only hear the AFE with the windows down and slightly when it was up but now I hear it, very pronounced, when the windows are up. I dont listen for it anymore but everytime I hear it and people look at the ride.. brings a smile to my face...
I am 100% with you. The AFE is a great looking intake. Power seems to be similar to BMS, but as we all know looks make a big difference or we wouldn't have spent all this money for the car.
