When you're taking of the stock Air Filter, what ist that piece with the two electrical wires we have to unclick? Does it hook into the Mopar CAI, or does it just dangle. I'm trying to get a headstart for the arrival of the Mopar CAI tomorrow, so I removed the stock and was just wondering what that was. Any info is appreciated from those who have done this. Thanks everyone.

those wires plugged into a sensor on the stock tube... if the mopar is like the K&N tube... you must remove the sensor from the stock tube and install it into the mopar tube....

hi jweland,
the piece you are refering to is the sensor, the instructions dont tell you this until towards the end, but you do have to take the original sensor from the original tubing then attach it to the new one.it's kind of hard to pull off, but it comes off with a good tug and a flathead screwdriver to wedge it.hope this helps.

So, if I understand you all correctly, I've got the stock one removed, so the wires are just dangling(with the plastic clipping device still on them) and I am to just re-attach them to the Mopar CAI? I just wasn't sure if it was Dodge specific clipping device that's all. So, if the plastic clipping device surrounding the wires is intact on the wires and is (male, for example) is there a female portion on the Mod to attach it too? Thanks guys.

the wires unclip, female to male onto the sensor, unclip the wires first, then remove the sensor and attach the sensor (looks like a nipple) to the new tubing.once the tube is in place with the sensor on it, then clip the wires back on.

I see what you mean. Just removed the sensor from the stock tubing. I take it (judging by the look of no box around the CAI) that once it is installed I'll just be simply plugging the sensor back into the wire, but where does it go on the new Mopar part, since there is no outer rubber place to fit it back into? Sorry to ask so many questions, but your info really helps. Thanks BAD 24 7 and to anyone else who answers.

on the mopar CAI tube, you should notice a small hole, a small circular rubber thingy should have came with your new parts. attach that round rubber to the tube and the sensor then fits onto that similar to the way it fit on the original tube.once all is installed, the set up and location of the sensor is at the same place as the stock was.

That sensor is the air intake temperature sensor and is very important for getting the right fuel mixture to the motor. Don't need no screwdriver with this. On the tab, there is a orange part that pulls up and out of the way, then just push the black tab and it just drops right off with no effort.
