Beast aren't judged by peak HP only, of course. The Bluespark Pro already hits the torque limit spec of the ZF tranny...and comes on strong at low rpm. I'm not sure how an ECU tune would "drive" better if a Bluespark tuner already drives great.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

One thing I'd like out of my Eco is some turbo whistle...I pulled the silencer ring out of the Holset on my Cummins, and it whistles quite nicely now. Open element / cone filters on my 2.2 turbo Dodges get a similar result. Anyone been able to (or even tried to) get some whistle out of the VM?

Metal intake tube will make it louder.

What is the purpose of the big foam rubber block on the passenger side of the engine compartment under the engine cover? Does it silence turbo whistle? It would be easy to lift out for a quick test.

Nothing to do with turbo whistle. Instead, it helps to limit the vibration of the hard fuel lines, if I remember correctly, allowing the engine to run more quietly.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

I've had the AFE intake installed for about a week. Went with the dry filter but will be getting a pre-filter as well for off-road use.

I've noticed better throttle response (turbo spools faster) and have enjoyed the sound. Its not abnoxious and is easily dealt with via closed windows. Any power gains can't immediately be felt but thats fine with me. The throttle response was what I was after.

Can't speak to fuel economy yet...I don't suspect much though.

Overall, I am very happy with it. Very easy install and it's got the cool factor.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

ive been looking to get one of these, but for $5XX does it give any improvements over the stock one eg. fuel consumption, proven throttle response? Ive replaced them on nearly all my cars but the throttle response is more of a bum placebo effect rather than real effects.

im just asking as ive never spent this much for an intake! im not fussed about the sound, i dunno i might be getting a lil old. I prefer to be quiet nowadays..

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

Paying 500 or even 250 to have your engine breath dirtier air isn't worth the gains to me if there are any. Its just a tube, less effective air filter, and a heatshield. Why they don't offer an improved airbox that takes advantage of the factory cold air inlet baffles me....

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

The AFE intake does utilize the factory cold air inlet. The top of the box does also seal / touch the hood which should prevent too much bay air from entering. The stock tube was very restrictive with all the ribs and the baffle. You can see they designed it to eliminate sound.

Check these out. Kind of hard to see but I can confirm the inlet is utilized. Regardless, people buy what they want for whatever reason. I'm happy with it.

+1 On the video, I'm on the ledge with this intake right now. VGT can sound so weird sometimes.
