My intention is to do that. Let's see if shiv releases the updated version of the n55. So I can do this.

They are inflated for every car, not just the N54. I have seen before and after dynos on other platforms, where the AFE intake actually lost HP.

Go for it, you can shell out about $900 in parts plus dyno time to test it.

I would gladly test these out if they were given to me for free since I have access to a dyno. However Im not going to drop almost $1000 just for some data.

However I will test the afe when I do receive it in April.

The stock box/filter isn't measurably restrictive. Even with the turbo maxed out, running full bolt-on mods at 360whp. All you would be doing is sucking in hot air which is the last thing you want to do in this application.

Just my 2c,

Interesting twist that I didn't see coming.... Hmm. Maybe we dont need a intake yet.
