Maybe a little more high RPM power to.
Downsize it has a High Idle at start for a minute or so until the ECM figures out whats going on.
Couple weeks back I swapped in a Accel ignition coil. The old was getting week. I gained better throttle response and maybe a little more power.
If I was to do it all over Again I would have started with a 4.0
I have done: Electric fan,2.5" exhaust flowmaster 40 mufflers and high flow cat.
4.0 TB,cold air intake and coil.
Overall the 2.5 is a annoying little engine on the road,but decent offroad.
I am hoping next year to swap in a V8/sm465/231. have been gathering part's.
Need to finish up my scrambler first.
well if u don't want the TB or intake i'll take it off your hands...I have been trying to get my hands on a new TB without paying up the arse...lol

Pylonpounder Of course it's going to whistle. There's more airflow. just as a strong wind makes a howling noise, that much air moving that fast makes a whistling.

You are forcing alot more air into your intake than it was designed for.
did u notice any HP gains? or throttle response?

Hey if you put stock back on then send ur brute this way...I don't mind the whistle

Boostedirish make sure that all of your clamps are tight, my brute did that and it turned out that there was a kink in the hose.

Kate I've read many an article where people have put on aftermarket intakes, and the majority of them whistle or make some sort of noise. The throttle body spacers seem to do the same thing.

Cons_Table I have a K&N and it does the same exact thing.

Rastaman69 I called AEM's tech support and they said that the whistling was normal because I removed the restrictive stock air intake system that muffled the "natural sounds of your engine." Apparently I'm supposed to drive around sounding like a jet engine when I accelerate. That's crap. Is there anyone else that has the AEM air intake system that doesn't have a whistling problem out there?

No I did not. I'll get one today and see if that fixes it. Thanks for the help!

morphious so you put a new high flow filter or a intake manifold i am confused. i bought one of the cone filters for a car once and it did this, but only when accelerating. so i would say if its the filter then your stuck.

AEM Brute Force Intake WHISTLING

My intake is whistling (loudly) everytime I accelerate and then gets louder when I level off the throttle. I end of feathering the accelerator just to keep it from constantly doing it. I just cleaned it 2 weeks ago (correctly according to AEM directions) Now that my top is off it is incredibly distracting and really irritating! Any ideas why or how to fix?
