So today I got my CAI installed, is was fairly easy, just one thing to modify, the hose that connects into the old intake was too long so it had to be cut, other than that a straight shoot.
I was thinking of getting the AFE stage 2, but I’m happy with K&N, the intake seems to have more flow, plus I did some research with the guy at the shop, and their number were not constant from website or print outs, here are some pics:
Every thing off:

I had the same problem with the old intake hose being to long so I also cut it, with a pipe cutter, and I got a nice even cut!

Does anyone know if these are compatible with the 2008 4.7? It is not listed on K&N's web site when you search by vehicle.

I think it does, take a pic of your engine or compare with the pics here, to see if it looks like the one on the '06-'07, but you can always send K&N an email just to be on the safe side

Nice Pics, but now you have to come up with your next mod as it is a never ending process.

How much of the hose did you have to cut?

6" or so, what you do is you do that last, so you can put the new hose adptor to the intake, and compare and sit it one on top of the other, that way you can see how muck to cu, since the old hose will not have the lip to help it stay in place, I left about an inch inside the new one.

The other thing to know is the clamp under the original box, if you have a longer screw than the one on the kit, you can keep the ruber that is there, if not then just take the ruber out and make sure it doesn't move.

If you are like me, that don't read the instructions you will try to remove the box for the vacum next to the intake box before time, just desconect the line and remove the box one it is out, if you have any questions just let me know.

:confused: I’ve been thinking about adding some insulation to the intake and the heat shield, does anyone has any opinions on this?:confused:
