2013 CAI Issues
 
I'm looking at the S&B CAI kit (love the look) for my 2013 Hemi... the problem is, it is a 10-12 build and the AC lines are running right through where the filter box needs to go. Is there a known fix for this other than changing the lines to a flexible braided cable and running them where they should go in the first place?

Any thoughts?

I just used a dremel and "modified" my K&N box so that the AC line just went through and I slipped the CAI under it. I then wrapped the AC line in a rubber hose just in case it rubbed on the CAI box.

Works pretty well and I've had no issues yet.

Could always cut a slot in the heat shield for the wires.

thanks for the replies guys.. It looks like a small modification to existing cold air intake kits might be in order. Unleash the Dremel

No mod needed, mine went right in no problem.

Got mine in without any mods, but it was a struggle. I didn't think it was going to fit at first but with enough pushing, shoving and grunting i eventually got it wedged in there.

Same here got mine in a few weeks ago no problem and just put one in yesterday with my buddy's brand new 2013 sport. No modification needed. Just have to squeez it in there.
