Anyone Use a Stage 2 CAI?
Has anyone used a Stage 2 CAI (vs a Stage 1). What are your thoughts? Anyone use this in particular? If not, what did you use?

i have a "stage 2" k&n on my ram... cant say as to how it ran before it got it but it seems like it runs damn good with it... the heat shroud can only help keep out all that hot ass engine wash. theres a little rubber flap that goes between the headlight and the radiator that was fixed to the radiator and the heatshroud so now it has like a ram air type deal too lol... o and mines the 97 5.9l

Have you had any loss of mpg with it in? I think I read somewhere that someone with a 4th gen (MDS) actually lost mpg when they put in a CAI, and not because of a heavier right foot :D

I have an AFE Stage 1. I saw an improvement in mileage after installing it.

Does the 07 have the MDS in it?

I have a stage 2 AFE pro 5 R. IT works great, a little better MPG, better response when accellerating and sounds a lot deeper when revving.

63-1561 is the part # for the K&N I installed.

Haven't noticed a decrease in mpg nor a significant increase in mpg. 70% of my miles are city though. The response is noticeably quicker and the deeper sound is music to my ears.

Next week I'm going to do some sound recordings driving by the camera. I want to hear a before and after when the new exhaust ships out myself.
