Okay I checked manufacturer specs on a few filters. Looks like all the ones people have made reference to are approx. 8.5" x 7.5" and 0.98 to 1.05" thick. I'm wondering now if everyone is putting the filter in sideways as in short side to the front/rear. It would seem to be not wide enough and allow quite a bit of air to go around it unless it ends up flush against the blower. I assumed it was long side facing front/rear since the photos I've seen on installs shows the part number with the arrows for direction of air flow on the long side facing front/rear. Can anyone clear this up please? THanks
Got a call back from Geno's. They confirmed that the Wix 24578 they sent is the crossover for the Mopar and should fit 2014. I spoke with Scott. He measured the cover and the filter and said that the filter should go in what I would call sideways, meaning the side with the shorter dimension goes into cutout. Note that SNRUSNAK indicated it is a snug fit which is what I've heard from others. However the short side would not be snug as it's only 7.5" wide. There should be a gap of 1/4" or so on each side. I don't know if filter ends up sitting flush against the blower or if the air could move around the edges of the filter since it would not be snug. More importantly, with the long side sticking out, I'm concerned it make stick out too much. Others have said I think that it will stick out 1/4" or so. If that's for the short side, then having the long side stick out would likely be an inch or more and the cover would not go on. I guess I'll have to make the cut this weekend and if the filter doesn't fit either way, then I'll just put the cover on it.
