AEM V2 Dyno

Hey
I was wondering if anyone has a copy of the dyno graph for the AEM V2 intake? I found it a few days ago with a stock v6 and the AEM V2 but haven't been able to find it since on here and the rest of the web. Does anyone have this on hand or know where I can go see it?

Thanks in advance

You are lucky if you will get 4 - 7 HP gain.

Yeah, thats what I'd expect for an intake, like there around a 4-5hp power gain average in a usable part of the powerband 2-4.5k rpms. I'm seeing the AEM v2 advertised as some unreal numbers of 18 hp and 15pds torq but they are rating this at or above 6k rpms.


Even if it could add that much power() I rarely go above 4.5k on these suburban roads so power maximizing that high up in the rpms isn't very useful to me, sounds like I'd have to work for it.

Anyway I just wanted to give them the benifit of the doubt and look at a dyno.

Here is what I found on K&Ns site.



The part I'm interested in is the point at 4k rpms that looks like a "5hp" gain where my target goal increase would hopefully be in the power-band. The rest is hope and wishful thinking.

Look at the dyno closely. Within 1 second the temperature and humidity changed. Also how can you swap an intake in 1 second as well as dyno runs are never 1 second apart. Dyno runs take about 10-20 seconds to complete. I called up K&N on this and they said the dyno sheet is true and I asked them how and they hung up on me. I think K&N makes great products but if your going to post a dyno sheet at least make it real. To me that is FAKE!! And also if its a true dyno graph where is the torque curve?

For what its worth, I still think my k&n short ram outperformed my aem v2. If you you don't race and keep your rpm's low, then the K&N is what ur looking for. If you race and like an agressive sound, the aem is for you. BTW, nice call on that dyno.

I wish a reputable company like K&N would at least admit to their mistakes and post up a LEGIT dyno graph.

My dyno is posted up somewhere when I had only the V2, I had around 220whp and a little over 200wtq ft-lb

Definitely a good call, I didn't even notice the time on it.

I had a K&N intake installed on my 2006 Civic before I traded it in. Very high quality hardware and fittings. Good product.

Here was my civic



The metal heat shield wrapped around the filter and had a thick rubber seal that would close it off from the engine with the hood down. The filter would still feed in through the stock snorkel out the grill.

the v2 is verynice when u go over 4500 rpm... thats so true... but under 4k rpm its like oem with a whisling sound... and exactly on the 2300 rpm going down, it make a hissing noise like blow off valves...

its a nice intake... but way too pricy...

An SRI might outperform a CAI on one run, but over a period of time (traffic, multiple track runs, etc..) the SRI will ALWAYS lose due to heat soak and bogging. It's been proven time and time again.

if you stick it on a dyno, put a big fan in front of the car and do 3 runs I can see an SRI winning out. You also get better throttle response with an SRI. But from owning both, I can tell you that on hot humid days, the SRI pretty much sucks (hot air from the engine bay). You sit in traffic and you bog the hell out of the car. There have been dynos that show an SRI actually LOSING power compared to the stock intake after repeated runs.

bhp is off the crank
whp is off the wheels

basicly in the real world after the car's been made all you can measure is whp, in whp there is loss in tranny, hubs, diffs(if any)

I guess I never realized you could lose 30% of your HP to the wheels. I thought it was closer to 20%

Our Honda auto trannies suck the power out of the cars. Some trannies are better then others. Its really hit or miss.
