Default AEM intake

Just a curiosity, do i need a map for the AEM intake?
I just got it and people are saying i could use it without a tune.

You’d better get yourself a tune, especially if you like your car!

If you want to keep your ringlands intact, get tuned for the intake.
You should install a downpipe first, then tune for both parts.

Downpipe + tune = Significant power increase
Intake + tune = Negligible power increase
Intake or downpipe without a tune = bad day for your engine

Best piece of advice: Read the Stickys & FAQ thoroughly before you blow up your engine and/or get flamed by the old timers here who have already answered that question about 10,000 times.

airflow tables will be different and off. if memory serves me right, u can get very lean conditions cuz the maf sensor isnt calibrated to the AEM intake.

you'll need a tune.
