Re: Afe Magnus force cold air intake (pro-dry)

Hmm interesting, I didn't have a problem at all putting in my IAT sensor. Nor do I have any rubbing with the powersteering reservoir, from the picture, yours definitely sits in a completely different spot than mine does.. I also didn't loose any MPG, if anything I gained, JK but I didn't loose any.. lol maybe your driving heavy footed because your enjoying the sound of that 5.7 baby!

2 Tips.

See where the power steering reservoir line passes behind the AFE Airbox near the cut out sideways U. It will chafe the hose. I put some edge molding on mine and put some of the black wire cover on it.
Also check the brake lines that come up out of the ABS and take a 90 If its close it may be rubbing on that.
Thanks Those are good tips and I'll make sure to correct. I thought the U-shaped notch was oddly placed myself, couldn't figure out its purpose...

I find it a tad askew that three people are experiencing different fitment issues. As for the MPGs I wish it was from a heavy foot because then I could correct... my daily commute is 26.4 miles round trip and it's all on back-roads with many stop lights. The past three weeks I've run 12.6-mpg down from 15.2

I installed an AFE CAI on my 2014 GC Altitude 3.6L. The sound is amazing. Subtle low purring at idle, a press on the gas brings a deep growl. Throttle feels stronger, I had to slow down as I hit 65MPH. Definitely, recommend AFE Pro Dry. Planning on ordering a ported TB from Fastman soon. Magnaflow 16929 maybe next Spring. Gotta save up.

Greetings,

I installed mine 2 months ago in my 2011 V6 as the first step in my engine mods before I ventured on my 2k+ roundtrip. One the key factors that I chose aFe, was the heat shield pipe running to the throttle body. From all the reviews that I looked into, the pipe does a better job keeping the heat out especially since on the V6 the run is 2/3 over the engine.

After 2 months now, I have the same results that you have reported. I did have some improvement with the summer blend gas with an increase roughly 1.5 mpg. I also found that I had a small increase in performance when climbing hills and mountains.

So next is the exhaust, followed by the Diabiosport and possibly the throttle body. For the exhaust, I am debating between a cat-back or an axle-back such as the Gibson. The sound is not important to me (but quieter the better), it is the performance and how they relieve the back pressure.

I wonder how much does a new TB help on the V6 when everything finally gets tuned?

Best for now.
