hmmm really i will consider this one nowI just installed a AFE Stage 2 and LOVE IT. Parts quality is top notch and install was a breeze, I think it took me maybe 30 minutes start to finish. I will warn that you will have MUCH MORE intake noise and turbo whistle once this is installed, if you’re not a fan of that then this intake is not for you.
Well I installed a SCT tuner at the same time i did the intake so needless to say there was a huge performance increase combining the two. As far as mileage goes, it has gone down some but i contribute that to me not being able to keep my foot out of it!That intake sure looks beefy when installed. How is the performance? Is it noticeable? How about fuel mileage?
Were you concerned about warranty implications with either of the above changes? (And change your sig file now - it's outta date! )Well I installed a SCT tuner at the same time i did the intake so needless to say there was a huge performance increase combining the two.

Great write up! If you dont mind me asking were you using the "canned" 93 tune that comes on the SCT or was it a custom 93 tune on the dyno?Have the same intake on mine with SCT tuner and MBRP 3.5" exhaust the total increase in power was very nice! Below I have posted a break down of step by step dyno pulls we made on a DynoJet dyno at my friends shop (air temp 85F)..... A+++! Drives better than new and I LOVE all the new found tire eating torque! Very few n/a V8's can hit these torque #'s with the same mods lol! Have put over 7000mi after mods with zero problems, MPG stayed the same only down side is you have to run 93oct however you can take the tune off and turn back to stock in 15min so no big deal. As for the exhaust I have had many people tell me they like the way the MBRP sounds and I feel it does a nice job of giving the exhaust a nice deep sound without sounding over the top or boy racer... good stuff!
Stock Dyno #'s - 306WHP/348TQ (Not bad for stock with paper air filter)
AFE Intake + MBRP exhaust - 323WHP/369TQ increase of (17WHP/21TQ over stock)
AFE+MBRP+SCT (93 octane tune) - 340WHP/425TQ! Total increase of 34WHP/77TQ...
what numbers did you get?i was one of the first to have one of these intakes for the ecoboost f150.
we had before and after dyno results that definitely did not reflect the claims of the manufacturer.
