I bought a used unit and the transfer credit. I’m waiting for instructions on how to mate it to my car and tune it.

Got the instructions, but I’ll need to wait til EC is off holiday break. Another week and a half won’t kill me......

I want to buy the eurocompulsion intake but before I do someone suggested to install the AFE POWER COLD AIR INTAKE because it's a sealed setup designed to keep engine heat out. Any comments?

Flow is more important than temperature with a turbo. The turbo heats the air up, then the intercooler cools it back down.

Someone suggested? How much testing did AFE do?? With EC, the tubing is the magic, the filter is the icing on the cake.

"Someone suggested" - yes! he is a certified mechanic. Working on high performance vehicles for the past 40 yrs and for more than half those years working on European cars. Is it a problem to question the dynamics of a product? One being sealed like all production vehicles have coming out of the factory or the open exposed conical filter exposed to the grime of the environment.
I'm just asking before I buy either one.

You misinterpreted me. Sorry. I have seen some less than stellar results with AFE over the years. Great on some vehicles, less so on others. I think I asked the right questions for you to look into. >>>TESTING!
