What's the bypass valve for? If I get the AEM CAI, do I absolutely need it? -D
Eh you wimp.kpw97 said:I would say AEM all the way! The power output was dynoed to be higher than both the Place Racing and Hotshot. I can't remember the exact number. It's in the se-r.net archives. The jwt pop gives you around 3 hp, where the AEM will give you around 8 I think. That may be reaching a little far.
For sound, the AEM should have a nice growl compared to the POP. I'd get one if the turbo wasn't in future plans and the the Charles River didn't flood so damn much!!
