I am ready to upgrade the stock air intake system. I have researched the archives and asked lots of questions. I am leaning towards the AFE Stage II. My biggest concern is the additional interior noise associated with it sucking air /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif How much louder is the system than stock? Are the additonal HP claims accurate? Can you tell a noticable difference? Also, anybody had any issues with warranty work because of the system? Do you remove it when going in for service? I just want to make sure before dropping $400+

You can purchase the Pro Guard 7 filter separately or with the unit. Keep me posted on what you think about it after you get in installed.

The horsepower claims are accurate. Immediate seat of the pants difference. YES IT IS LOUDER, YOU WILL HEAR IT. I don't really feel in cab noises are that much louder 5% not more than 10% maybe. My banks exhaust made much more of a difference for in cab noise than the AFE 2 did.

I also have the AFE stage and I love it!I can only hear the turbo whistle when at cruising speeds,hardly noticable until you mash the go pedal.You will definitly notice a diffrence.I was a little skeptical about the performance gains but you can feel it and can really tell the engine breaths better.The quality was nice as well.I went the the pro gaurd 7.Hope this helps you out.I think you will like it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif

I noticed a bunch more whine when I installed mine, but I also have a WW and an ATS housing. It is noticable, but not annoying.

At cruzing speed, its not louder than anything else out there. It is however loud, just like all open air systems, when you push on it. You can hear the turbo, whistle and the sound of power:).

The aFe stage-II is quite a bit louder than the stock box, but you can use Turbo Air Guides to quiet it back down and gain some low end throttle response at the same time.

I recently installed the stage II with PG-7 and you can hear a sucking sound ans well as a whining sound when hitting the go pedal .

I deffinetly like it, sounds great.
