Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

Any one know if the Mopar CAI for the V6 Pentastar is available yet or when it might be? I called Mopar Performance Online this week and they did not have any updates. The guy did not sound very optimistic of is being ready any time soon. They have on the site ETA of 4/15 but I think that is an old date now.

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

Now the site shows 6/15 as the ETA for the Mopar CAI. Anyone have a suggestion for a CAI for the Pentastar?

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

ETA has changed from 4/15 to 6/15. I gave up on waiting CAI from Mopar and bought one from Airaid instead.

BTW, I thought AFE is OEM supplier of CAI to Mopar. Not sure though.

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

Being more of a DIY person, I can get a pipe bent to match the "hose" but have a difugledy: the IAT sensor seems to be glued to the "hose" rather than being replaceable. Anyone know of a screw-in sensor with the same value and connector ? (suspect just an OTS thermister).

Am not interested in HP just really do not like seeing 120-140F IATs. Does take a soak so probably does not occur during the EPA cycles. Also live in a hot climate so do not need any manifold heat (is really unnecessary with FI anyway).

Quick look says the air filter and intake snorkel is sized for the hemi so "enough" for 3.6 & just getting rid of all of those odd chambers that seem positioned to soak up heat. In fact really going to be heretical and say 2" is probably enough anyway but first experiment is going with 2.5" and I'll check the IMAP against my baseline to see if it changes (was about 1/2" BP at 6300 rpm).

Four feet from the filter to the Throttle Body is a long way but first I need to source an IAT sensor I can add. Anyone have a part number ?

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

The standard air intake is already a CAI. It takes cold in-rushing air from the gap between the hood and the grill. In fact it is better than the Mopar CAI that takes air from the engine bay.

I guess I just wasted $255 buying the AFE CAI then Maybe I can send it back?

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

I would assume the AFE is similar to my Airaid where there is a sealed box to keep the underhood heat out of the intake. My airaid also uses the same scoops the oem intake uses.

Yes it appears to use the same scoops as the OEM...will know for sure when I get it this week.

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

Got in my AFE CAI today and installed it. Installation was OK...instructions were a little lacking but I figured it out...at least I hope so. Seems to run well.

Re: Update on MOPAR CAI for V6 Pentastar

AFE seem to have done a good job in isolating the engine bay air. If Mopar have done the same, I may have maligned them unfairly but still, the only benefit over stock that I can see is the sound.
