Mopar CAI Hemi Installed

Okay, first off, I know my engine is filthy - I tend to find tons of mud. I need to find a way to protect the bottom of the filter from water/mud intake, but other than that, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS THING!!!!

Only installed today and have only gone about 100 miles with it so far. At light throttle or normal driving it is not noticeable, but hit the throttle, and this thing bellows!

I am hoping to achieve about 1.5 mpg gain - that is my goal right now, to push the Hemi to closer to 14mpg overall.



Tight Fit - had some minor irritation to get this in...

Looks like it installs just like the AEM Brute Force. I love the sound at full throttle.

I have never seen a Mopar 4.7L CAI, however I do remember reading that K&N makes the Mopar system so it would be cheaper to buy a K&N or research this webite and see which CAI seems to be the most appealing to you and go from there.

I almost went with the AEM Brute, but ordered the Mopar one right through my dealer and avoided shipping charges. Also, liked the look of the tube with the MOPAR logo on it. I can say that I am definitely not disappointed with it so far.

Okay, next question - what is the best way to clean up this engine bay? What does everyone else use to clean these engines?

You can get engine degreaser at any auto parts store. But if its just dirt I just use a wet rag and wipe everything off.

I clean my engine (while running) with a power washer (or a good pressured hose) and then used engine detailer from any auto parts store. CD2 has always worked best for me. I have never needed any cleaner so I could not recommend any but would say be very careful with any real pressure around the electronic control boxes. My engine looks like new and even the dealer is iimpressed during service.

looks like mine! You even installed the little rubber liner in the wrong spot, just like me! It's actually supposed to go around where the hood closes and not where the pipe goes into the box. I didn't know until after I installed, but hey, who really knows. I'd rather have the one shiny pipe under my hood protected than the insulation on the hood!
