10.5 - 11 wide on the front???? ok must be the photo doesnt make then look that wide. also it must have a deprimental effect on the ride, tracking and wear on the tires to have something as wide as 11 on the front?

How do you find the DWS's to the other tires you've ran in the same size? You had the dunlops at one point right?

What does the AFE intake really do? I feel like the OE setup is pretty bad ass, venting all the way from the bottom of the grill, how much cold air can it get?

That open air design I would assume would be a "Hot Air" Intake since its open to the engine heat.

If it WERE to breath/flow better. Assuming the intake manifold could handle it. Wouldn't an appropriate tune be needed for any noticeable gains (or record-able, probably unnoticeable)??

Just curious...

The AFE is open on top but box is quite close to the hood and at the front of the engine. During acceleration the flow will be primarily through the intake and cooler. The other aspect of cold air intake is higher flow. The X will adjust fuel flow to match greater flow of air. The result is some gain in HP and torque. I went with Dinan, don't think AFE was available at the time. Their performance gain claim on 4.6 is 13HP and 12lb/ft or torque. FYI--Dinan version does have a closed top. The engine will sound much better as a side benefit.
