Relocating the IAT makes all the difference

Great aftermarket replacement for stock intake system on a MAF-less system like what Dodge N/A engines use. Relocating the IAT away from the engine keeps it cool and allows it to shed heat when it does heat soak. Love this product!

AEM Brute Force Intake 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 V8

Nice fit and finish.Nice sound from the engine bay.Makes the engine look great. The engine seems to rev a little quicker I'd say pulling a load or pulling a hill that it pulls better than with the stock intake system.

Overall good intake

Install was very easy. Kind of weird I think that you don't oil the filter. I wasn't aware of that until I saw the outside of the box. There is a noticeable sound difference but power I don't notice a thing. I did unhook the battery so the computer would reprogram to this intake but still not much change. Looks awesome under the hood. Hoping an exhaust add on will help me notice the benefits of the intake system.

Product works well. I received it in a timely manner and was pleased by the ease of install. Only issue is I wish you offered a enclosure for the filter.

It talks

As soon as I started my engine after installation, you could hear the intake sucking air in. The OEM set-up on the Liberty literally starves the engine. The acceleration is improved. It's no hemi, but combined with a new exhaust, driving is more fun now. I highly recommend the AEM Intake.

Breathe

Used a discount code and only then the price was somewhat reasonable. Instructions, install and quality are very good. A note of interest, the included 5/16 diameter hose would not fit. Correct hose size is 1/4". Had to run to the parts store to complete the install. Only $1.70 spent, but still. Would have been dead in the water without it. Beware. Paired it up with a Magnaflow cat-back and the truck howls. Sound and performance above average. No real increase in MPG's.

Good, could be improved

I like the product, I was a little frustrated with the installation instructions. They were a little outdated and unclear... They need to be updated and have a little more detail. It would have been a half hour job to drop this in, but I had some of the bolts in the wrong spot due to the foggy instructions. Overall I am satisfied with the intake. Looks nice and sounds good.

2006 Pathfinder Install.

Just got done installing my AEM Brute Force intake and it took only about 25 minutes to do. Might I say that I was impressed with the sound that the engine produced and it made the hills that I have to drive up, fairly easy. I noticed a very smooth shift in the transmission when it goes up in gear. My co-workers were very impressed about the "Roaring" sound it produced upon completion of the installation. My son has an AEM intake on his Infiniti G35... Maybe i'll take him up on a drag race, haha

G8 intake

Very nicely made, easy to install. Noticed minor power gain but big difference was in throttle response. Much smoother and quicker, nice muted intake below too. Highly recommend this!

Good product.

Looks great and very easy install except the air sensor. Word of advice is have a little petroleum jelly and the sensor will be much easier.

Awesome intake

Great and easy install, seems to help my truck out with the throttle instantly. Gets up and goes better, you can tell it needed the air. Wish there could have been a throttle body spacer install capability as well, but overall it's worth the price and it's the best price around on AutoAnything. Not sure on mpg yet. May help with keeping your foot out of it, but when it's brand new who does that anyways. Good quality parts, no junk.

AEM Brute Force is the way to go!

I've put these on two different trucks now. Got about 0.5mpg better on average, but that's not the reason I got this intake. The reason I installed was to increase throttle response and this intake does that tremendously. very pleased with them on both trucks. AEM is top of the line as far as cold air intakes go in my opinion. On this truck installation was extremely easy. Had the factory intake out and this one installed in 30 mins.

AEM Brute Force 2006 Ram Hemi

I've used quite a few CAI before, I really like the way this looks and gets rid of the air plenum. It was a little more involved of an install then the Volants ive used, but still only took me a few hours to do. Ive already seen an increase in MPG. Great product!

Brute

Had the Brute Force on my 2000 sierra, loved it! Added a bit of power and gas mileage. When I purchased my 06 2500hd the Brute Force was the first upgrade I invested in. Big motor wants big air! Very happy with this product.
