I posted a thread about the exhaust from aeroturbine, and now I'm ready for my intake! I'm really looking for a good intake and throttlebody spacer. I really want the whistle that the throttle body gives. I would like to keep my intake hat and I know that it must come off for some of the intake kits. I like the AEM Brute Force but I was told that the K&N 77 with a poweraid spacer is the best gain in performance and insane whistle. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

I had the Poweraid throtle body spacer and I had to take it off because the damn whistle was too loud for me. I have the K+N FIPK 2 intake with the spacer and it all fit with no issues at all.

I was also looking at the S&B intake kit. On this site http://www.motoblue.com/ramhemisnb.htm They claim 18 hp! and no removal of the intake hat that Says HEMI. What do you guys think? Bogus?

even though the whistle was too loud for you, was the spacer worth it, and did you loss any fuel economy.

thanks nick

If you like the AEM setup, I really suggest taking a look on EBay. There are AEM knock-off intakes on there that look exactly like the AEM setup, and cost 1/3 the price. I have one and its great. It includes a TBS aswell. I paid around $90.00 shipped for it.

This is the kit I have. Its cheaper then what I paid too :)

Your right...Its pretty much looks the same.....Heres my AEM setup!!!!
I would skip the Throttle body spacer and just buy a 68.5mm Throttle body from The Fastman.....way better.
Edit: I forgot to add with the Fastman Throttle body and an Intake you will get whistle like you want. Mine makes all kinds of racket....I love it.

Skip that you'll be better off getting the fastman throttle body 68.5mm. You will get more hp gain with that. Sorry Im repeating myself guys. Forgot what I had wrote above......

Fuel Economy__Gain 1.5mpg(depends on your foot too): Performance__Cant feel a whole lot on the butt dyno but the truck was alot more peppy. When you have a 5000Lbs truck (like stated before on this site) 4 to 8 hp is not going to slam you back in your seat. Hope this helps.

Wasinger12, remember daze513 and nickd907 have the hemi motor. The tb will provide very little gains for them. Unlike our motors.

Thats a good intake from what I've heard. That one and airram's are the only one that have that setup where the filter is in that location. But most people prefer airram's intake on here due to the insulation and size of the piping. Overall you wont see that much gains just from an intake. Personally I would buy the one like Jimmy TJ for about $90.00 and get a superchips or wait a few months for the other compaines that out coming out with their version of the chips.

I am the same way with motoblue myself. I think their dynos are bogus with their parts.
