O.K. I know there are some guys on here that have not waited for AEM to come out with a Brute Force that is actually designated for the 2006's. I called AEM today to see if they could assure me the one for the 2005 year trucks would work or not or if they had any plans for the intake for 2006 model year. Well...let's just say if I had actually been face to face with this guy he would have been staring at me like I had a third eye in the middle of my forehead :D He really couldn't tell me anything!
My concern is that according to their advertising, they dyno test each model year for peak performance and to see if the unit actually needs their throttle body spacer...well since the 2006's have MDS I didnt know if the intake would be a little different or not. And....I'm still wondering!
So, guys (with the 2005 Brute Force on a 2006 truck) does it fit?...Is everything on par...performance wise? What's the verdict here?

Take a pic of your engine, and post it up. Im sure we could tell by looking at the pics on whether it would change over or not. I dont mind running out to my truck and taking some measurements on my Brute Force if you want.

I don't really see why it wouldn't fit...your reservoir bottle is in the same place as mine and the attachment point for the intake tube looks to be in the same place.

The only thing I can think of that might make a difference is the MDS but I don't know why that should make a difference either.

Judging by your pics, Id say youll be fine. Your MDS shouldnt make a difference. Its the same motor, and the MDS is computer controlled by a different PCM/OBC.

how much of a performance gain did you get, and how much does this CAI cost ? What is your acceleration like ?
