I just installed the Exceladyne stage 1 kit from Beyond Redline which includes an AEM intake. So, is the intake supposed to sound like a fat kid trying to get the last drop of his 64oz drink?? It is a crazy loud intake! :broken:

LOL.. Yes, you got rid of the silencer and the other baffling that was included in the stock intake to keep things quiet. Now you hear the turbo spool and also the stock BPV.

the difference in sound is unbelievable. For a while I was afraid it was the bypass valve leaking somehow, and I installed the AEM FMIC at the same time, then realized it must just be the sound from the filter.

I always thought of it as Darth Vader taking a deep breath, but I like your description much better

It sounds cool for the first few days, but after a while it gets very annoying. Espicially when im driving conservative, shifting at like 2.5k and darth/fat kid come to life even well before that. My morning commute starts at 3:30am and that is the LAST thing i want to hear.

I've got CP-E's closed boxed intake and you still hear vador. not sure how it compares to an AEM, but its definitely audible to people outside and inside the cabin of the car.
btw, love the fat kid analogy!

The power is not quite what I was expecting but its still way better! The intake is so freakin annoying though but putting the washer tank back is equally annoying.:dunno:
