Not sure about the Banks but I picked up a used AFE Stage 2 and gained 2 MPG in the city. Very pleased with the quality and performance of that intake.

First off, Tons of info in this thread! Thanks!

But I do have one unanswered question - from what I could see.

New Eco boost owner.

Is there such a thing as too much air intake for a stock 2013 Eco boost? I'm interested in the gains on the AFE intake but just curious if it's too much air or if that's a thing, "too much air".

You have to keep in mind that a turbocharged engine functions a lot differently than a naturally aspirated motor, and the turbochargers only have so much air demand at any given time to generate the boost pressure that the ECU is calling for. With a big enough sensor housing or inlet tube, you'd eventually trip a CEL, but that's another issue entirely.

Basically, you don't have to worry about "too much air" with a basic, bolt-on cold air intake kit.

Is anybody running the CAI from CV fabrication (2012-2014)? It looks like a knock off of the AFE stage two. I was just wondering how it compares to the real thing?
