CAI

NO WAY is an Edge a "truck"! And if you think a cold air intake is going to change the way it sounds you have L-O-T-S to learn.

 

An F-150, or my F-250 diesel or my SON's RAM 2500 4wd CTD is a truck. Edge is a crossover SUV based off the FUSION AUTOMOBILE.

 

No shit dude! Forgive me for calling it a truck! And it most definitely will have a sound improvement.

Since the old Sport was a naturally aspirated engine you would see very little improvement in power. It would be there, but it would not be enough to notice while driving.

 

The 2015 Sport, on the other hand, is a twin turbo force induction engine and there would absolutely be a performance gain that would be noticeable. There would also most certainly be more sound from the engine, as the stock intake is built to reduce engine noise.

 

I have a '15 Sport and check online every month or so to see if something popped up to go along with my Livernois tune and happened to stumble across this thread. :)

 

 

 

 

 

I did the complete CAI change for my 2014 edge Sport and used the K&N system.

A complete waste as Ive notice zero change in performance or gas mileage.

If I had to do it over Id just buy a K&N or other brand aftermarket filter. and pocket $300

After reading everything about K&N I don't think I'll ever get a CAI. The few HP doesn't justify making the risk.

Not to mention the significantly lower filtering efficiency which means you suck more dirt and bigger dirt particles. I cannot stand how companies like K&N market their products with sensational claims of +xx% fuel economy and +yy power gains.

Installed the AFE panel filter today initial thoughts.

 

Performance gains - none that butt dyno could tell (wasn't expecting any)

Noise - No noticeable noise increase or the typical CAI sound

Build - Here i'm actually pretty satisfied. To me it seems to fit a little better over the OEM filter. The oem filter's seal on mine had all sorts of holes from bubbles popping when being manufactured (see picture). My opinion is the AFE may hold a better seal.

What you have noticed does not surprise me. I have used AFE filters before because they appear to be built very well appearing to maintain good filtering efficiency. I have mostly used their paper conical filters before to replace the K&N or S&B oiled filters that various CAI kits I have purchased in the past came with.

Just bought Edge Sport. I have a race shop where we custom fab intakes and exhaust. Would any of you be interested in a kit? I will get the shop to make one and post some pics. Estimate labor and material to be around $400? I have done the same with Hyundai Rspec vehicles. I can powder coat our kits to any color you want. Email if you want. EMP@enhancedmotorsports.com
