    So I ran across this today from the AFE website. Those are some very impressive numbers for a intake. I have been fooled by new intakes and the claims that they are supposed to provide. Can anyone speak to the truth of this? Did someone from the forum give them a car for a test vehicle? I mean 37 HP to the wheels! That is a seat of the pants difference. I'm just finding this hard to believe. Thoughts?

    Agree with nycsrt, this company has there name riding on this product,, so it's very important it does what it says it does...hopefully a few of us will see this kit before the end of June...

    Dr.B is great,,I was taking to a few Chrysler guys today, and they said if we change ecm they can still tell...I then told them,,, that's fine,, take my money, give me a tune,, don't make me go somewhere else...I told them if it cost a little extra to have the dealer flash the car, that's fine,, but you have to stand behind it...dr share with you how he is getting almost 900 hp?

    I didn't ask for his recipe but he told he burnt the clutch trying hold that power levels....i would only swap ecus at track so it won't get more then 8 miles a month I wouldn't use for daily driving ... But I won't be greedy I used to pay thousands of dollars to make 600 on wheels now I got it out the factory wit warranty so I'm
    Happy ;) if hellcat didn't drop I would've got gt500 and swapped it to auto and tune and call it a day

    It's a bold claim that hasn't been backed up, so think about this.........if you take out the air filter and only gain 12-14 HP on a dyno which has been proven on quite a few cars, how are you going to gain 35-37 going through a filter? All I can say is let a few others buy it and find out before you spend your cash.............

    Hemituner will have a tune for it soon as well, and he's one of the most reputable Mopar tuners in the world.

    When we ran baseline dyno's on my Hellcat for the tune Hemituner is working on, we removed the airbox and gained 12hp at the wheels. This was bone stock.

    A buddy of mine has a shelby, just an intake alone netted him like 50 hp. These high horsepower motors gain a ton with proper flow. I dont doubt one bit the gains afe is claiming.
