I just ordered k&n CAI for my 14 overland 3.6. K&n website video says to disconnect the negative terminal. Here is a dumb question But where is the negative terminal? No I have not read my owners manual yet lol nor did I see it when I was under the hood the other day.

You don't really have too disconnect the negative cable . just be careful with the sensor when you pull it out the old system . That's your main piece . Sounds great you will love it I have the same engine as you .

Awesome! Cannot wait to get mine installed. Did the engine cover go back on snug? I read others say that that was the only thing with k&n.

Re: Kn cold air intake

Yeah it snaps back in on both sides . It will be fine won't move or anything or feel any rattling . So much more room in the engine bay. you get rid of so much plastic from the stock system .
