    got rid of the chrome tube look. I like the flat black as it gives more of a K&N/Big bully type appearance.

    before and after

    Black is wicked-er, chrome is kinda wasted under the hood IMHO anyway. ;)

    looks great...can you come and put one in for me?! lol Can I ask...does a CAI make that much of a difference in car performance? I don't know much about them and have been reading posts here and I'm thinking I want to have one put in. I have the 2012 V6 engine. Thanks

    IMHO it's the first mod I did to my SE and was suggested by my Mopar hot rodder guy, who had been helping mod my Rumble Bee I had traded in. The V6 needs help breathing on the bottom end, and since yours has dual exhaust that mine didn't, you don't even need my second mod, exhaust. AFE is the brand I used as its more a velocity stack setup than just a tube like a lot are but STILL can't install for U, less U bring it here, Solly!

    Thank you Sickr Bee, I will look into the brand you suggested and keep doing my research. I'm new to doing mods and want to do right by my car....I've waited a long time for it. Have a great weekend!
