Re: AFE Momentum GT CAI - anyone tried it?

With you having the V6 did you just use the drop in filter? The Momentus only fits the Hemi. AFE doesn't appear to have a CAI for the V6 on their website.

A little back and forth on the steering wheel never hurts...sometimes you get some bite out of the side of your tracks instead of the ice slick he created underneath his tires.
