    Question Thoughts on AEM 21-796C Cold Air Intake

    Members don't see this ad
    **Looking for some feedback**

    2017 Genesis G80 3.8L AWD - Ultimate

    Want to install an AEM Cold Air Intake System

    AEM doesn't have one for the 2017, but they do have it for the 2016 Hyundai Genesis 3.8L

    To my knowledge the only difference between the 2016 and the 2107 is the badge/name swap

    The engine and all the components should be the same

    Before I make a $300 gamble, would like to know if anyone else has experience with this

    and also, is it worth the money??

    AEM is claiming a 19 HP @ 5100 RPM & 19-ft lbs torque

    Not worth it. You will only notice (may be) a sound difference.. Get drop-in K&N filter, will work better for this car than CAI.

    These after market cone air filters draw very warm intake air from the engine compartment. There is no true "cold air intake" with most of these systems.
    Curiously, the stock oem system is more of a cold air intake - trace the convoluted intake routing.

    In most cases the dyno tests of after market cone air filter systems are with the hood open, making the intake a "cold air intake".
