Will the stage 1 part work/required for stage 2? Sold separately? Bundled?

I believe stage 2 and 3 are not compatible with stage 1. Think someone may have asked earlier in this thread.

no worries man, not pressuring you :D I guess you can't give us a ball park figure on the cost by any chance? I had got impatient, bought the afe intake...then sold the afe intake...back to square one :eek:
I got impatient too and sold my mishimoto while demand was high. Bought the PRL stage 1 and a green filter.

What made you guys sell them?
I sold the afe really only because I didn't even hear much of a difference. I know, I'm corny...I wanted more woosh sound between shifts. I couldn't hear it that much (some others with aFe will disagree though)

Wanted to try something diferent, something that sounds louder and diferent material if possible. I really like how the injen sounds but dont like how it performs.

I noticed that you have to give it some miles(break in). My current setup got louder after a couple thousand miles, but you are right afe IMHO is not as loud as the mishimoto.

you need an open intake like the injen then :p
I can guarantee you will be satisfied with the loud woosh and turbo spool from that.

How is the induction noise on this stage 2? Stage 1 was very subtle, definitely better than stock. But I want something more pronounced.
We have yet to fully machine the MAF housing for a production piece. We have been using our printed prototypes to confirm fitment issues as we are waiting for final box molds to be completed. Being similar design to our cold air for the 1.5T platform, we expect this to be quite significant in terms of power (and sound).

yeah, maybe it's the material that surrounds the intake that makes the aFe quitter...the plastic absorbs the sound more maybe?
