I know there are only a thousand of these posts... Background for those thining about this mod or and exhaust. I had the Magnaflows installed had them for a couple days. When you start the car it sounded mean in a good way. When I was on throttle again very mean and not to obnoxious. BUT, when keeping speed, let's say 2K rpm and 40 mph it was not to my liking at all. It made me look at the car in a different way.

Now, to the Mopar CAI. The sound is amazing. It is not too loud, not too soft. It is barely noticable while keeping speed but very nice sounding when on throttle. I can say it was very much worth it, and took maybe 30 minutes to install (part of that was changing the headlight bulbs as well). The only bummer there was one double sided bolt that mounts the tube to the heat shield and it was double sided. One to hold it to the shield and another bolt to hold the tube to the bolt. They included 2 nuts. They were both the wrong size. Not even close. They fit over the threads completely. LUCKILY I had a bunch of bolts and 2 that fit or I would have been very pissy.

Here are some pics, and check the engine cover too.. It is a color change paint from purple to blue to green and even a little burgundy.

good points made by both - zenhog and hemi4me...
zen - if you are on the phone alot - DON'T get any aftermarket exhaust system. They will all be too loud and your clients will hear the exhaust while on your calls.
