Has anyone measured either a performance gain or EGT drop when switching to an AFE stage 2? I already have a K&N (filter only), and can not justify the extra $275 expense unless there will be a measurable gain. Does anyone have Dyno numbers or track time changes? Edited by: Amric

Turbo Noise was my only real gain EGT dropped about 50 Degree's. Other than that a K&N and a Cut out airbox will give you close to the same gains IMHO

If you already have the K&N filter (The complete kit) you will not see any difference. If you have just the filter replacement, you will get a much faster turbo spool up. and much louder whistle sound.


You will not see any difference in power on a dyno, However real world driving, you may be able to tell a small difference.

Anybody have any experience with AFE Magnum Force for the Dmax? Did you notice any gains in mileage, power, lower EGT's? Any info would be appreciated.


Thanks,

just an increase in turbo noise......... No mileage or power gains.


I can't comment on the EGT's, I'm still running with the stock exhaust and no guages (but not for much longer.....)

I have gauges but did not see much change in the EGT's. You would see the bigest changes with the 4" exaust or muffler change.


Like Blinky says nice turbo whine!

If you think about it....... $275 for an AFE stage II that probably wont yeild any difference ....... OR........ $299 for a SuperChip programmer that will definitely make a difference.


Sounds like an easy decision to me. Except the AFE doesnt have to be removed or hidden for any warrenty work.

Except I bet the SuperChip doesn't whistle while you work.
