mopar CAI.

Well I got bored this morning so I dug into my truck and pulled out the stock air box and all it brackets..
After that I installed my new smog legal Mopar cold air into with TB spacer. I know the spacer doesnt do anything but it was part of the kit so what the hell.

The hardest part of the entire job was getting the new heat shield mounted. using the factory bolt to mount the end of it to the radiator is a joke. I had to rip the washer off the bolt so it would be long enough to work.

You do not need to remove the fender liner to get to the stock bracket bolts like they say. you can remove the screws and get your arm up in there to take the bolts out.

I have been runing my stock air box instead of my AFE Stage II since last summer since my truck was at the dealer for engine issues.

I guess its time to sell the old AFE.

I will see if I can snap a picture of the install later this afternoon.

Bill

That washer is a MFer to cut off

actually what i did was use a pair of channel locks to bend it one way then the other. after that I was able to unthread it off the bolt.

amazing how much that looks like the AEM Brute Force

Looks good! Can you tell any performance/sound difference between the two?

Well since I havent had the other one on my truck in months it is hard to say if there was any real difference. I would think they are about the same.
I would really question any one that claims one makes more power than the other without a dyno to back it up.

This one was free so that always makes it better right? lol
