Because I installed several items at the same time I can't say exactly what improvements the AEM Brute Force Air Intake made. I can say the improvement from the parts installed were significant and worth the time and money. The intake was a quality product and I'm sure it added a great deal to the overall improvement to my truck in performance and economy. I'm glad I selected the AEM intake.

It arrived before expected, installed in about 30 minutes, only complaint on install was that one bolt wasn't long enough to put in the intake plenum, but the two bolts in were enough to make it solid. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Gained about another mile to a gallon, and doesn't down shift as much on the highway. Havnt really got into it to see a power difference (defeats the purpose of gas mileage) Overall very pleased.

The installation of it was pretty much self explanitory i didn't really even use the instructions execpt to double check my work but otherwise performance wise i can feel more horses under the hood with a little better gas mileage

Installation was relatively easy (except for the lower heat shield screw and the throttle body bolts). But everything was described in detail in the instructions. This is the 4th. AEM system I've installed (I also have 2 Mustangs, and used to own an '00 S-10 P/U). They look great, and perform well. Haven't seen any mileage increase, but have noticed more power! I'd buy a 5th if they only made one for my '98 Ford van with the 6.8L V-10, hint hint!

The aem brute force intake increased response by 800 to 1000 rpms before the tranny shifted out of first from a standing start. Don't know about fuel milage yet. Looks better than stock and breathes better too, went from a 2 inch opening to 3 and a half.

Not a bad product. Notice quite a difference in lower end torque and engine response. Only issue, as with many after market products, it needed some minor tweaking to install the heat shield and the mount post for the intake tube itself. Haven't checked milage yet but have to guess it's up at least 1 -2 mpg just by the way the engine is breathing and responding.

I instaled the brute force air intake on my zr2 s10 and it made my 4.3 litre v6 run like a v8. Also the other thing is before i instaled the system my truck would not do a burnout after i put the system on i had to buy new tires. In short great product easy to install worth every penny.
