well im looking at getting a new intake and i know by the charts whose the best (obviously CPE at 540 bucks) and then injen + the fix then AEM (wat most people say).

My question is kinda out of the ordinary though, does anyone thing one sounds better than the other? Videos are great if u got some!!

I think they all would pretty much sound the same? The CP-e one uses a larger diameter tube. So it may sound a bit more aggressive

I had AEM before CP-E and CP-E is def more aggressive sounding.

The MAFci kit induction pipe sometimes makes a whining noise very much akin to something a forced induction engine makes. :) The pipe is just at a certain size and length that it acts as a resonating chamber at certain throttle positions, hence the whine.

I have both AEM and K&N CAI. If you don't punch the car, you're not going to hear anything different than from using stock intake. If you're at the 5000 rpm and up then you'll hear the roar.

RPM doesn't matter as much as throttle opening. The more air you're sucking in, the louder it gets. They're all pretty civilized 'til you give it a little push. ;)

Glad you are getting the CP-E! I have the Mazdspeed intake on my 6s. It makes my car sound like it has a V6. When my warranty ends though I'm buying CP-E, hands down!

You won't be sorry if you do. I just finished installing it yesterday night (with very LIMITED instructions cuz the guy I bought it from DIDN'T include instructions) and I've had no problems! I didn't expect it to pull so much when I hit the accelerator. It also has a great sound, like it reminds you of the power that you have (at least in my 6s). All in all, worth every penny. :)

Even the CP-E doesn't really sound all that different from stock until you get above 3 or 4k rpm.

Wtf?!?! :headscrat:

Wrong. Even if you're barely on the gas, the air being sucked through the CP-E gives off a badass hiss until you reach upper rpms and then it just starts to roar. On a cold start, it's alot deeper as well in the lower rpms.

Blackmagiks MAFci w/ Mic


That should put a shit eatin' grin on your face :D

Good luck with that.

It comes with something to retune the MAF signal then? I thought the CP-E was the only one. Care to elaborate on how it doesn't cause a CEL? B/c every single intake thusfar besides the cp-e, that's been put on a 6, has caused a CEL.

I think the 6i's are less prone to though, IIRC.

gee i couldn't possibly be ordering an Injen fix now could i? or perhaps even the tuneable MAF could i? never did i say that i don't have it already i said it won't be throwing a CEL after this weekend. one might think that means that i'm adding a MAF from cp-e.

Wow, your sarcasm makes you look like a complete and total ass. Just because Blackmagik doesn't read every post that you make doesn't mean that you should try and insult him. He has done a shit load more for this community than you have.
