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.

I thought AEM wasn't making the gen 2. Where did you get it?

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?
