Re: Yup, Mopar 3.6 CAI is here ;)

That's why I bought Airaid instead. It uses OEM air intake with air chamber, so I don't feel any loss of lown-end torque. Have had mine for almost 1 year.

Mine is 2011 overland with 15k miles on and I just started hearing this rattle noise from rear hatch door. Some sort of metal touching noise and it's not coming from outside.

Re: Feedback on V6 w/ dual exhausts?

Thats sounds more encouraging. But, didn't your Durango(Heat model?) come with OEM dual set-up? So, I guess replacing OEM dual with aftermarket dual wouldn't make much difference.

Re: Feedback on V6 w/ dual exhausts?

Re: Do Cold Air Intakes Improve Fuel Economy?

Honestly, I don't think people mostly buy CAI to improve MPG. For me, I don't see any noticable MPG improvement but little better performance gain.

Re: Awful shift points. Will we ever be able to do anything about it?

Simply, Pentastar needs 8 speed transmission. Look how much difference it made to 300C with 8 speed one.

I live in city and with 5 speed trans, I get Hemi like MPG.

Re: Advice needed.. V6 or V8?

You are right. Pentastar's problem is not the engine itself at this point, it's that 5 sp transmission. 8 sp one will help greatly.

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.

Vibration coming from wheels/tires or engine? If coming from tires/wheels, check the balance or tires belts.
