Expert Answers about AFE

  • Bolt On Modifications for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3 liter to Maximize Horsepower
  • As far as products we carry the best option for maximizing the horsepower of your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 would be to go with a cat-back system, a cold-air intake, and a programmer. The most bang for your buck that you are going to get for exhaust would be the aFe Mach Force XP Cat-Back Exhaust System with Black Tip # AFE49-44038-B. For a cold air intake that would make the most economical sense and will provide you with just as much power as the other kits I would recommend the...

  • Best Cold Air Intake Recommendation for 2014 Silverado 5.3
  • It all comes down to personal preference in the end, but for the most part any cold air intake is going to give a vehicle just as much performance as the other. If you are looking for best bang-for-your-buck I would recommend the aFe Direct-Fit Cold Air Intake System with Pro Dry S Filter # AFE51-32332. This is an economically priced cold air intake designed to fit your 2014 Chevy Silverado that will give you the same performance gains as the more expensive kits and has a very easy to...

  • Best Cold Air Intake On A 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • I have the perfect option available for you. Foreign contaminates are a serious concern when weighing the pros and cons of a cold air intake system. As many aftermarket cold air intake systems are relatively open, they do not offer near as much protection from the elements in comparison to factory air boxes. However, element containment factors were strongly taken into consider when aFe designed the aFe Momentum GT Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System part # AFE51-74104 as the majority...

  • Horsepower Gains for 2014 Chevy Silverado 5.3L with Programmer, Cold Air Intake, and Exhaust Mods
  • To determine an exact amount of power gains for a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 5.3 liter motor it would have to be placed on a Dyno to calculate its new output. When you add performance products to a vehicle, the gains do not necessarily stack. What I mean is if new exhaust adds 10 horsepower and a programmer adds 20 that doesn't mean that you added 30 horsepower; only that you increased it by up to 30 but its likely less. So we can provide a ball park figure but putting the vehicle...

  • How Do Cold Air Intakes Affect Fuel Economy
  • A cold air intake like the AFE Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System # AFE51-11052 that you referenced could only help your fuel economy. Most likely it would give you a few more miles per gallon. As long as it is installed correctly it should give you increased fuel mileage and performance. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also. When the filter gets dirty you may also be interested in purchasing AFE Filter Cleaner # AFE90-59999

  • Engine Showing Error Code After Installing Cold Air Intake
  • According to my research, the most common cause of having that code would be a dirty or improperly installed MAF sensor. Make sure the MAF sensor is fully inserted into the intake tube. Since your system uses an oil-based filter, there might have been too much oil on the filter, which in turn contaminated the sensor. You can pull the sensor from the intake tube, and use an aerosol based electrical contact cleaner on the sensor. A vacuum leak can cause the error code, as well. Make sure...

  • Will Adding aFe Cold Air Intake Void the Warranty on a 2011 Chevy Silverado
  • The short answer is no, adding an aFe Direct-Fit Cold Air Intake System, # AFE51-11922, to your 2011 Chevy Silverado will not void the warranty. Consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson- Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the probĀ­lem in question. If you have...

  • How To Install an aFe Air Filter on a 2009 Volkswagen Jetta
  • To change the air filter on your 2009 Volkswagen Jetta you are going to need a few tools. You will need a Phillips screwdriver, slotted pliers and a Torx 15 driver. First step is to remove the torx screws holding the cover to the intake. Once those are removed you will be able to separate the intake from the engine cover you will need to pry up on the engine cover to get it to free itself from the engine. The best way to do this is to start on one corner and pull up on it until it...

  • Pre-Filter Recommendation for an AFE Pro Dry S Air Filter
  • We do carry pre-filters for the most of the Pro Dry S filters. If you have the Pro Dry S filter, # AFE21-90020, for the Cold Air Intake, # AFE54-10502, then you will want the pre-filter, # AFE28-10043. I confirmed that this pre-filter will work with the Pro Dry S filter # AFE21-90020 with my contact at AFE. If you have a different air filter, then just let me know the part number of your oil filter or of the cold air intake system that you have and I can recommend the correct pre-filter...

  • What is the Micron Filtration of AFE Diesel Fuel Filter # AFE44-FF005
  • I spoke to my contact at AFE and she informed me that the aFe Direct-Fit Pro Guard D2 Diesel Fuel Filter # AFE44-FF005 that you referenced has a 9 micron rating so it should work well for you since it is less than 10.

  • Best Way To Increase Horsepower And Torque In A 2017 GMC Sierra 5.3L V8
  • The best way to not only maximize but increase horsepower and torque on your 2017 GMC Sierra 5.3L V8 would involve installing a cold air intake, performance exhaust system, in addition to a performance chip tuner. Using these components will allow your engine to breath better and perform at it's peak output which will increase not only power but also fuel efficiency. For a cold air intake compatible with your vehicle, I recommend using the aFe Momentum GT Direct Fit Cold Air Intake...

  • We do have the aFe Mach Force XP Cat-Back Exhaust System with dual pipes. You will want part # AFE49-42013-B. This system retains the black tips that you like.

  • Troubleshooting a Service Engine Soon Code after Installing AFE Cold Air Intake on a 2004 Ford F150
  • Most likely, the code has something to do with your mass air flow sensor. You should check that it is plugged in completely first and then check to see if the sensor itself is dirty. Sometimes with oil based filters oil can get drawn through the filter and get on the mass airflow sensor and cause a SES code to appear. The other issue could be the IAC, you might check to see that it is sealed and has not come unplugged. There is also the possibility you may have a vacuum leak which could...

  • Air filter Installation Instructions for a 2007 Chrysler Crossfire
  • To remove your old air filter you will need to remove the engine cover by first removing the two intake tubes and then lifting up on the back of the cover. Flip over and there are two panels on the bottom with 4 T27 Torx screws in each. Remove the screws, pull of the panels, and there are your two air filters. Reverse to install the AFE Air Filter - AFE30-10137. If you are looking a set that has both of the filters needed I would recommend the AFE Air Filter # AFE30-10194. I attached...

  • Takeda Cold Air Intake System for 2014 Subaru Outback
  • In many instances, the stock intake does indeed draw warm air from the engine compartment, but this isn't the case with your Outback, which has an intake that's ducted to the grille area. This being said, you'll still get up to a 7HP/6 ft-lb torque gain because the Takeda # AFETR-4303P is less restrictive than the stock air intake. The mandrel-bent intake tube is larger in diameter, which allows more air to enter the intake more quickly. Also, most stock air intakes have baffles intended...

  • Will the aFe Silver Bullet Throttle Body Spacer # AFE46-34001 Affect Computer on 2003 Chevy 3500
  • According to our friends at aFe, the Silver Bullet Throttle Body Spacer you referenced is a simple bolt-on install that will require no adjustment or modification of the vehicle computer settings. The unique profile of the interior of the throttle body provides more complete fuel atomization, resulting in improved fuel economy and performance. Using this product will not harm the computer on your truck.

  • Installation of the AFE Stage 2 Pro SI Cold Air Intake System on a 2007 Ford F-150
  • I spoke with my contact at AFE to inquire about the modification you have made by installing a piece of the old air intake to direct air directly into the air box. He said that normally the trim seal is used to eliminate most of the gap but that the alteration you have made will most likely provide a small amount of extra airflow. The only thing to be aware of is that the extra air flow may cause the mass air flow sensor to set off a fault code. If this is the case the extension you...

  • Transmission Cooler Pan Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Allison
  • Both the AFE transmission coolers part # AFE46-70072 and # AFE46-70070 will fit your 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500HD with Allison transmission. The difference between the two is the finish. The # AFE46-70070 has a raw finish and the # AFE46-70072 has a machined finish. The replacement pan has up to 4 quarts additional capacity, and features integrated fins for increased surface area to disperse heat. There should be a noticeable drop in fluid temps.

Getting a lot of extra horses out of smaller gasoline engines can be difficult. But you have to look at it from other angles. By adding a cold air intake, engine performance in general will increase and you can also experience gains in miles per gallon. The Edge Insight, # EP84130, or # EP84030,...

  • Recommendation for Air Intake and Pre-Filter for Gravel Roads on a 2003 Dodge Ram with 5.7 Liter V8
  • The aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System, # AFE54-10502, does work best on paved roads. For gravel roads with more dust, you would have to clean it more frequently to maintain performance. For your 2003 Dodge Ram with a 5.7 liter V-8, I recommend the aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System with Pro Dry S Filter, # AFE51-10502. This unit is designed for paved and semi-dusty roads. You can also use a pre-filter, # AFE28-10041, for even more protection. We also carry these pre-filters in...

  • Will a Cold Air Intake System and an Exhaust System Improve Fuel Economy on a 2001 Dodge Dakota 4.7L
  • A cold air intake like the aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System, # AFE54-10372, is a benefit to the engine because cold air is more dense and therefore is more readily combustible. It will also optimize airflow allowing the engine to breathe easier. A performance exhaust like the MagnaFlow Exhaust System, # MF15611, for club cab models with 63 inch bed or # MF15739 for quad cab models with a 63 inch bed, will also optimize airflow by reducing the back pressure. Both products will...

  • Comparing and Contrasting Dry and Oiled Air Intakes for a 2002 Ford F-250, F-350 Super Duty
  • The benefit of a dry filter system, like the aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System with Pro Dry S Filter, # AFE51-10192, is that it is good for both paved and semi-dusty roads. The oil-based filters, like in the aFe Direct Fit Cold Air Intake System with Pro 5R Oil-Based Filter, # AFE54-10192, are best suited for paved roads and are not recommended for more dusty conditions like you might find on gravel roads. The dry filter has slightly higher filtration at 99.2 percent than the 98.6...

  • Cold Air Intake Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Ridgeline

With the oil-type filter, it is recommended to clean and re-oil every 25,000 to 30,000 miles using Restoration Kit for aFe Pro 5R Air Filter, # AFE90-50501. Oil filters allow for the greatest amount of airflow. I have included a link to the installation details for this intake below. If you drive on paved and...

You will want to remove your stock air box and measure the diameter of the tubing. As long as the tube diameter is not greater than 6 inches, and there is room to mount the filter, it will work. The height or length of the filter measures 7 inches. If you find you need a smaller...

  • Is there a Limit to How Many Times an aFe Dry Filter Can be Washed and Reused
  • There is no specific amount of times the aFe Direct-Fit Pro Dry S Performance Air Filter, # AFE11-10004, can be washed and reused provided you adhere to the instructions for cleaning it. If the filter becomes damaged or can no longer remain clean even after washing that is a sign it will need to be replaced. I recommend using only the aFe Cleaner, # AFE90-59999 to clean the filter. It is recommend for use every 25,000 to 30,000 miles.

The main difference between the two will be the noise level. The # AFE51-11172 will be slightly louder than the # AFE51-81172. This is due to the cover that is on the # AFE51-81172, it will keep the noise down slightly. Some people prefer the additional engine...
