AEM CAI... How much louder is it over stock?
AEM CAI.. How much louder is it over stock?

I'm thinking/wanting to get the AEM CAI off the ecelica.com store.. but I'm worried over the sound like when I start it up. and at its Idle state in park.

Reason I park my car on the side of our house next to the fence which is next to our neighbors room. If its too loud then they might report us to the city and I won't be able to park there =(

any sound clips?? grin

Don't worry, it's not that loud, especially on our little four banger engines. It won't be any louder at idle than your stock box, at least it won't be noticable. When driving, especially at wide open throttle, the thing really comes to life and growls.

The only time your neighbors might hear it is when you shut your car off, it will make a sucking sound. Still not loud enough to be a bother. Tell your neighbors to kiss your ass, because the noise that would resonate from your car with a CAI will be more than legal.

if you have GT, it won't make any much difference in sound, you'll hear more throtty and suction of the air.
But if you have GTS, the sound will be day and night once you hit the lift. It will sound like your car is screaming.
which is very nice, but if you want to hit lift without getting caught for speeding, i suggest not to get Intake

I can post a vid when I get home of what the AEM CAI sounds like on a gts.

It's not whiney or high pitched at all, sounds deeper and throttled. Recieved many a compliment on it.

Off topic a bit, but how's the sound of a SRI?


In parkour, no one is afraid. One is just...apprehensive.

Takes most people only a few hours.

Took me nearly 6 due to the fact that it was the first mod I ever installed, I didn't want to mess anything up, and I double checked everything I did.

I was so paranoid about messing something up. Now I just beat the crap outta my car (in a good way)>

You'll have to excuse the bad camera work, it almost fell out of my hands shifting into second, which accounts for the hesitation going into gear. wave
