Thread: AirAid or AEM?

    Default AirAid or AEM?

    I am getting a cold air intake for my '93 Cheyenne with a 4.3L V6. I was recommended to get either an AirAid or an AEM. Does anyone have any input? Also how much horse power and fuel mileage do you think I will pick up.

    I'm also considering advancing the timing. Does anyone know anything about this? How far can I advance it? What octane gas will I need to run? ...etc.

    If I had to choose between those 2 I think I would go AEM Dryflow. No need to oil and it is a better filter.

    I would say AEM, that's what I'm planning on getting for my truck. I loved AEM I had on my honda I used to have. I see you have a 4.3 v6 engine, the intakes they make are for V8 engines on the trucks so I'm not sure if it would work for you. I'd contact them or do some more looking around.
