"Stages" are marketing jargon. Doesn't mean anything.

As far as the intake goes, good quality, great for those that don't like much intake noise. Works good for what it is. These cars tend to find the most benefit from a large 3.5" open element intake.

Thanks! I have a K&N Typhoon cold air on now. Is this a better intake?

Check out either Sxth or Tork for an intake, these folks really know these cars and engines and will really get you going in the right direction.

Open end element is the K&N i have on the car. they say they get on dyno 15hp. But the AFe which is closed say that they get 16hp. Hows that?

I changing air intake because the K&N seems to be grabbing air from everywhere including the hot engine cause the heat shield does not seal away engine bay. I figured the AFE has direct air flow from stock postion in front of car, also has a plug hole on the side for more air from the right side of the box

Small diameter pipe, not the best.

SXTH, yes. Tork, no. I would avoid them. The stabilization bracket on their intakes tend to break as well.

Different dyno's used, some may read higher than others. Also, in my experience, intake gains tend to get fluffed up a bit.

Doesn't really matter, the turbo will just heat up the air anyway. If you want cooler air in the intake manifold, upgrading the intercooler is the best thing you can do. Meth injection is next.

Im surprised by that. My brother ran a Tork intake on his VT for 4 years or so without issue.

I personally ordered the Sxth intake cause it does look like a more polished product. Getting it in white so it matches my car was a plus lol
