just installed my AEM CAI gen 2.

so far it works nicely. i can totally tell a difference in torque compared to my old Injen Short Ram. and i got some pics of it so you can see the difference between gen 1 and gen 2.

as you can see where the MAFS is located next to the throttle body instead of on the middle of the tube.

AEM said they arent going to make a V2 for our car. but ya anyways. the pipe is supposedly just bent different in the gen 2 over the gen 1. and the placement of the MAFS. as far as the fogs go, got them at walmart for $40 bucks. i forget the name of the company though. sorry.

Where did you get the gen. 2 and how much? Did you get the bypass valve or just don't think you will need it?
