        5 2015 Wrangler - deken Installation Time: Afternoon

        AEM Brute Force Intake

        Straight forward install with great directions. Changes the sound giving it a throaty growl when you step on it. Feels like I have a little more power and throttle is more responsive. No real change in mileage after the first tank if gas. As noted in other reviews, the 2 lower bolts for the airbox are a pain to put in. Also, this intake is not compatible with a throttle body spacer. Doesn't leave enough space between throttle body and the fan shroud.

        1 2016 Rubicon - Matt Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Very Underwhelming

        I've had several intakes over the years by AEM so I expected the same overall experience with the sound, quality, fitment etc. The instructions that are included are top notch. Considering this system is $400, I expected to hear a much more aggressive tone. Unless my foot is on the floor, it sounds bone stock. I just installed this afternoon so I can't give a 100 all around review including performance. So far, I am very disappointed with this purchase.

        5 2012 Wrangler - Tut Installation Time: Afternoon

        Satisfied Customer

        The intake system is working out great and I can actually feel a performance increase. Also, the instructions for the installation were some of the best that I have seen. Clear, concise, and printed on paper (with many pictures) that was actually large enough to read. I indicated that it took the afternoon to install only because that was the closest option actually took less than two hours and that was taking my time. Kudos to AEM and Extreme Terrain.

        A little tight fitting with a bit of adjusted maneuvering , but a better throaty sound at 2-4000 rpms!
