Just how much noisier are AEM intakes?

Could anyone post some recordings to give me an idea how much noisier than standard these Intakes are?

Ta very much

I tried taking a recording at lift with my new phone, but it didn't come out good. All I can say for my freak Celica is that the Intake sound is better than an exhaust especially at lift if you have a GTS. And I say my freak Celica because I never heard lift kick in before like I heard on my Celica. It sounds real real real pissed and a definite noticeable click mechanical sound that will scare away children by an overpass or concrete medium. What a difference and the best buy I have ever made for my car other than coilovers.

^^ i believe its the blow off valve from the Turbocharger if im not mistaken happywink confused

the sound is kinda sorta the same.. well maybe not laughsilly

the sucking noise is mainly when you first turn it on then when it's idling its not as noticable.. but yup when you gun it you hear it growl grin

on a gts it sorta sounds like a crotch rocket after lift kicks in...in fact i can hear my AEM CAI over my TSRM exhaust.

i recommend hitting lift in tunnels as often as possible thumbsup

The exhausts are road legal everywhere, the Intakes arent road legal per say in california because we didnt fork over the 6 grand to be able to put a little sticker on it. That hasnt really hurt my cali sales tho.
