Actually, the full name of it is AFE Magnum Force Stage 2 Intake System with Pro 5R Filter.

(54-12602) is the AFE part number.

One thing I have really come to like about this intake is that the bottom of the factory air filter box remains in tact, so, there are no concerns about road dirt and debris getting sucked up into the air filter.

This is exactly why I chose the same one. I love mine as well. Did you go with the dry or oiled filter? I chose the dry one as it allows a little more air in than the oiled one. Which reminds me, I need to inspect mine to see if it needs a cleaning.

I got the oiled filter because it's supposed to be better at catching and trapping the dirt that does actually make it up to the filter.

Probably harder to clean though.

I think the baffle is to help prevent water from coming in.

If by baffle you mean the bottom of the factory air filter box - it remains in tact, so, there are no concerns about road dirt and debris getting sucked up into the air filter.

I keep hearing the term "baffle" and I'm baffled.

Are you referring to the bottom of the factory air filter box?

Or something else?

No, protruding from the the lower portion of the box is an L shaped tube that comes out near the grille. Riveted to the front of it is a "baffle" or diffuser or whatever you want to call it. It basically blocks off the front leaving only a sliver for air to get past. I removed that piece from mine and then got it hot with a heat gun until the plastic was warm. Then, wearing gloves to keep from getting burned, I pressed out the restriction. This greatly enlarged the inner diameter and left a wide open hole in front. Huge difference in response on my 5.7 with a tune.

I can't see water being an issue. If you can get water going that high in a large volume, your screwed anyway. I drove it through rain like that without issue.
