Re: 5.7L clunky and unrefined

My Acura 3.7 had the same tick at idle. I could only hear it in the garage or next to the retaining wall in my driveway. Neither the Acura 3.7 or Hemi 5.7 tick under acceleration. Both sound awesome...

Re: Finally put on the mopar CAI

I think a lot of people have had this issue. The temp sensor fits and locks but is loose. I didn't want air getting through the hole and cause the sensor to get a false reading. Putting a few layers...

Re: Winter's Coming - Let's talk snow tires

I have 18" black steel rims with Cooper Weathermasters. Great setup. Quiet and smooth on the highway and great grip in deep snow.

Re: Finally put on the mopar CAI

Exactly. Just enough to let it twist in and no be so loose.

Re: Finally put on the mopar CAI

I had the same issue with my K&N. It will twist in but was very loose. I wrapped it in Teflon tape which then kept it nice and snug. I think if people are hearing whistling it is from air passing by...

Re: What fuel do you use?

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.

Re: Airaid vs K&N CAI - Is there a clear winner?

I have the K&N. 20min install. Very easy. Will probably change to a dry filter to ease maintenance down the road. Nice quality unit. Magnaflow exhaust on the way. I have the Hemi.

Is any heat shielding necessary to protect the spare tire well from excessive heat from the Magnaflow X chamber in the rear? The OEM mufflers have heat shields in the wells they sit in.
