AFe has been around for many years building quality items. I'm running their CAI on my 3.6 and would never look back. It's a great quality piece. Mopar is usually overpriced for what you get. I also never run an oiled filter, always dry. The difference in performance isn't worth the hassle to wash and oil the filter.
Does the afe or Mopar negatively effect the amount of water you can cross? I know some CAI suck up air lower than stock units and I dont want to take away from the GC water fording capability just for the sound of the intake.
Went with Volant with the Donaldson Power Core filter with the nano-fiber membrane, have them on all my cars, for the better filtering. I somehow doubt any CAI is going to do much for HP/TQ since the factory ones are pretty good. Of course they sound better at WOT LOL
