Just installed the aFe #51-12662
VERY happy with build quality, fitment and appearance! I will post all the pics I have...took about 1 hour start to finish...no modification needed!
All the parts you take out:
Trickiest part was making enough room to get to the bolt behind the washed reservoir...this is used to secure the heat shield
Installed!! Not fitment or clearance issues at all...

Anyone successfully remove this trim piece (if so, how?) and any thoughts on whether it helps temps/air flow/performance vs allowing water in?
NOTE I DID remove the flap above the headlight...seems like a no brainer to allow more air into there from the front as well!!!
I will update this thread as time goes on...but so far I am very happy...IAT temps are 4-7 degrees above ambient when moving...2 degree lower than stock (for me)
