it's only a 0.9 hp difference, you won't feel that.

follow the curves, you'll feel that. AEM is greater then Injen the whole way except at the top for tenths of that rev. plus look at the torque puke

i dont believe that graph. you actually think that the Injen CAI is gonna give you 20 less hp in the low end??? i think not

was....5speed with i/h/e
15.41 @ 89.30mph 2.282 60'

is....04 srt4 stock
13.936 100.15mph 2.177 60'

go with Injen if that's what you like. You shouldn't let 0.9 hp difference make your decision. Although Injen has had issues with cracks appearing on the Intake, so they're redesigning it or trying to fix the problem. But still, you should buy the one that you feel more comfortable with.

people please read the actual dyno not the max hp and tq, AEM has way more hp and tq all the way through the power band, whih means you would accelerate way faster, but i'm not sure i believe it either seems a little to bog of a difference

how many dynos were run other than this, they have been known to be inaccurte hence why reputable shops do several runs

Humm interesting graph! does it mean that I made the wrong choice when I got my Injen RD CAI? Humm but I love that aggressive sound that it gives you. And 0.9 hp wont make a big difference..

hmmm look at the graph. there is a big difference in low rpms where the hp and tq is with the two Intakes.

talk about selective dynos wink what I see is that your AFC is all screwed up. those lines are awful.

try dynoing them again only this time keep everything even wink

Injen is known for making more peak and less down low.


but eh what do I know. <----likes my AEM and until a celica sport Injen runs decent times at the track I will not change smile

what I did notic ehowever is that everyone dynos higher then me frown

166.5 whp and 120.5 wtq frown

mee and illussive dynoed almost identical wink he has the TRD exhaust. it's all hype I tell ya. every dyno is different. to be the most accurat you need to dyno 3 times per car on the same day, same dyno to compare 2 cars. smile same with mods you need o give proper cool down between runs so you start at the same temps. smile

I made 2 tuning maps look the same just by running the weaker one cool and the stronger map super hot. smile that way people will be shocked on sunday wink

AEM gives better overall Performance than Injen!
esp. low down and middle.
i did a comparrison of both Intakes,identical cars first and then the same car.switching back and fourth between Intakes and even the filters,from a butt dyno comparrison and drivability the AEM came out on top easy.you can feel the difference between the two.
the Injen sounds nice at top end though but i could hardly feel any difference between the two up there unlike the AEM where you can feeel the difference right away low and middle when compared to the Injen.
btw. Injen CAI for sale! blue.

HYBRID:resulting from the combination of two or more mechanically dissimilar origins!

^^ my bet was those 'feelings' are due to driver bias, not facts.

whether or not they are true or not doesnt matter..but you cannot feel such slight differences and switching between the two would lead to only an assumption.

this is true. it's worth noting that different dynonameters judge whp differently.

the dynojet dynonameter, for example, usually shows a whp that is closer to bhp than some other dynonameters (when used on the same car).

you really do (as you stated) have to dyno the comapring cars/products on the same dynonameter.

BTW its 1.1 hp difference and norway its 20 lb/ft difference not horsepower, that further proves AEM owns on the torque side... comon take a little more time reading the dyno
