New AFE Magnum Intake for N52

I just found out that AFE has a new intake system for the N52. I previously had their garbage intake and got rid of it but now was wondering if this new system is any good.

I hope the reviews would be good.

"12HP, 15LBS. x FT." SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

Need to see some reviews on this asap!

I want this intake, but doubt it'll be any better than a Eurobox which costs something like $150 less.

It's probably the nicest looking intake box there is.

But seriously, don't expect 12whp. You can optimistically expect probably 5whp.

I wonder if they fixed the surging issue with this one, or have a different location for the MAS

and also on there site they also list the regular stage 2 intake at 420, everyone knows you can get them cheaper then that. I think its just MSRP. The magnum has to be less

alot better design... but doubt it will do anything close to what they advertise... but a nice step forward from the crap they were selling before (still).

given their bad reputation on their previous intake for the NA, doubt this will sell unless someone does a good honest review on it.

why would they create an enclosure, then break it with those two extra inlets? That defeats the purpose of the negative pressure (sucking) generated by an completely enclosed design.

perhaps for sound purposes... probably the closed case didnt sound good for sound driven buyers.

I just want to see where they got their numbers from. IF it produces those numbers I'll pick one up for sure.
