AEM (Advanced Engine Management) is proud to release its Brute Force HD intakes for diesel applications with a massive DRYFLOW filter element! AEM Brute Force HD intakes are available for popular late model Cummins, Duramax and PowerStroke Diesel engines. We engineer our Brute Force HD intakes to deliver maximum flow, filtration and durability for heavy duty applications and they even outperform the company's BRUTE FORCE intakes for these vehicles in both dust holding capacity and filter flow.

AEM's reusable DRYFLOW air filter for its Diesel applications is engineered to allow for longer service life and higher efficiency for maximum performance in between servicing (more DRYFLOW key features are below). Compared to the standard 9" Brute Force Dryflow Filter, the Brute Force HD Dryflow filter features over twice the surface area of filter media and utilizes deep, bull-nosed pleats to improve dust holding capacity and increase intervals between cleanings. The DRYFLOW does not use oil to trap dirt, which eliminates any chance of overoiling the filter element, takes the guesswork out of servicing your filter and dramatically reduces filter cleaning time.

AEM manufactures its intakes from mandrel-bent, lightweight aircraft aluminum with high-strength dogbone brackets and dual rubber soft mounts for maximum durability, and includes a "bullet-proof" heat shield with a powdercoated black finish, a complete hardware kit and comprehensive photo installation instructions. Brute Force HD intakes are available with a silver powdercoat or mirror-polished finish.


AEM’s lifetime DRYFLOW Synthetic air filter is 99.4% efficient in FINE DUST testing, filters dirt as small as one micron, and never needs filter oil!


AEM's unique non-woven synthetic filter media never needs oil! This means less down time between cleanings and no more chance of over-oiling. It takes the guesswork out of servicing your air filter


An injection molded ABS plastic filter lid and base provide increased structural rigidity - it's virtually impossible to collapse!


No mesh screen means no more filter damage from shipping, bumps during installation or cleaning


Element is cleanable and is Guaranteed for Life!


Will not void your vehicle warranty!

Got this put on yesterday along with a cfm+ intake manifold! Really opened up my 02 and let her breath! Runs good and sounds even better!
Great value, performance and quality in this product

This AEM intake system has a great appearance and very solid durable build quality to it. I am constantly driving in dusty conditions so the dry filter feature was a great option for me. The turbo is much more audible and there is even a better sound when engine braking with this intake! Definite increase in throttle response, power and fuel economy. Installation was relatively easy, just make sure to tighten the hose clamps all the way.
Great intake, some issues.

I love the intake, the filter is HUGE! The only complaint was there was a hole in the intake tube for a filter meter which I do not have and it is hidden in the picture. The last thing is there were missing holes in the heat shield for mounting it so I reused an old one.
Great buy!!! :D

installed this on my 98.5 dodge ram 2500 and wow its fantastic! i have had it on for about a month now and the screaming turbo never gets old! every once in a while i find myself turning down the music just to hear the air being sucked into the turbo! noticed a little gain in power as well. acceleration timing seems to be a bit faster. some other intakes might be more expensive but this one is defiantly the best!

Its awesome! Stays cold and you can hear the turbo sucking air, its way louder in the cab with this intake. It is also physically much bigger then it looks, took up every bit of room I had in my 01. Install was easy, the only thing I don't like about this intake was how everything fit together. We had to force this thing on my truck. Overall, I would buy it again good price/product.
