aFe makes quality products. I've used their Pro Dry S filters in a few applications. I wouldn't hesitate if you want an intake. They are all similar in sound and performance. Volant might be slightly more quiet due to their enclosed design, but I've read of many fitment issues. I for sure would pick aFe over an oiled K&N. Once you've had a performance dry filter, you won't want to go back to oiled gauze.

I had the afe on my Magnum R/T (Hemi) with the dry filter. I never had an issue. Loved it

Need to spend some extra time fitting in there and it does clear. I adedd a few washers under one of the 3 mounting points. Didn't hit hood but touched the under hood sound deadner.

So I have the same AFe and have no problems with the hood fitment but I had a heck of a time re-connecting the IAT, it barely reaches. I even disconnected and rerouted the line. Anyone else experience this?

Also, I've had mine on for three weeks and I'm experiencing a notable loss MPG, -2.6 to be exact -- same daily commute and outside temp. I didn't expect an increase, installed for look and sound, but I also didn't expect an 18% decrease. Thoughts?

For now I'm thinking I'll run another tank of gas (I go to the same station weekly), monitor and then swap the stock back on for four weeks and reevaluate.

FWIW, I have a 2012 hemi w/ 31k miles.

The AIT wiring harness is a stretch. There are extensions out there. I know my K&N had one for my 2004-2008 4.7 L it was a good 8". I rerouted mine as well. Was yours sort of wrapped around the harness buy the throttle body?

You're too quick... I figured I'd grab some photos, delete my previous post and start a new thread so I didn't hi-jack this one.... Oh well :)

As for your question, yeah, it was wrapped around. Even with re-routing it's a tight fit. It also seems farther up-stream than stock.

While I was out there I also noticed the connection to the TB is offset to the passenger side quite a bit. I loosened and tried to slide to the driver side but I had no play in the intake tube. Very odd. Perhaps I got a bad one or one for the WK1. Anyway, here are the pics I just snapped to better explain.

looks just like mine.

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.
