Default Re: Aem vs hks

AEM seems cheaper, as far as I know, most people use HKS.

For every HKS DLI I'm sure there have been 2-3 AEMs because they keep failing. If you look on the forums you'll see that the AEMs have an extremely high failure rate while the HKS has only had one or two usually because so much water got onto them that it shorted them out. I've owned and ran 3 HKS DLIs no issues currently with blowout at 28 psi and never had any problems before up to 34 psi on past cars.

HKS all the way. The AEM has a big failure rate.

Default Aem vs hks

My HKS died but I'd get another one again before an AEM based on all the neg reviews.

Gap your plugs down, good plugs, wires, new coils and you are good to 30psi.

I had mine up to 26 psi before on non-projected NGK plugs, new ignition system, and plugs gapped to .028" before I installed the HKS DLI. It was a boost spike though; otherwise, I had been running 22-24. I didn't try pushing further with a lower gap just figured it was necessary to install since I already had one sitting in the basement.
