Images of MOPAR CAI installed on 3.6L

I have a '12 GC Overland - and I've been looking at putting on the MOPAR Cold Air Intake (p/n # 77070042).

I'd like to see some pictures of it installed on the 3.6L Pentastar - apparently you have to trim the engine cover to install it properly?! I'd rather not have to do that if possible, so before ordering it, I would like to see someone's results.

I haven't even found an install PDF yet.

Thanks for any help, I did find the part: (just changed the dropdown menu to the right engine for proper part number and price)

I might be installing the mopar one soon, purely for the throaty tone..I can't see any negative effect to offset that gain.. AFE has nice lines but has rivets in the stupid tag on the tube, im not big on rivets in the path of my intake, I'll conceived. K&N is next but I don't like the filters or the tube design.. And while mopar's filter is sorta dinky and oiled, without being the oversized neck of the K&N it's easy to replace. With a better one. I don't love the poor tube routing that makes you cut the shroud but it could be argued as a straighter path, no matter. Also the filter box is just cheap looking in its fit and finish, easily modified. But it's OEM and that trumps a bit. I'll post pics after

K&N clean overall but the first section of tube is smaller diameter?? And the heat shield is just half azzed.

AFE. Nicely shaped and fit box, stickon label before they starting riveting holes in the tube. Too bad as it has no other downsides but 4 holes and aluminum rivet ends in the tube just piss me off. Ever heard of a bad batch, in this case any foul up and it goes straight into the engine. No possibility of luck.

Mopar poor tube fit, and look at the massive gaps in the "cold air" shield. It actually looks like homemade crap put together from oddball parts.. But that's how they all look installed.

I have a 2014 V6... Anyone installed these CAI's and noticed the claimed better MPG? I use my Grand Cherokee as my work vehicle traveling a lot of highway miles. I could use some better mpg.

Agree - any extra MPG is helpful. With the CAI, do you also have to do an engine tune? From past Mustang experience, the tune was needed to get the full CAI benefit, but it was more expensive than the intake. I have seen a few CAI threads, but none mentioned a tune.

it will not help Hp or MPG.
Why?
Because if it did, chrysler would install those stock to compete better with other SUVS.
Why do they do not?
Because all a CAI adds is noise and coolness. Not mpg or HP.

Agreed. I installed a Mopar CAI on my hemi and no noticeable HP gain and zero change on gas mileage.

I love how they call it a "Cold" air intake. "Hot" air intake is more accurate.
