Talking Installed AFE stage 2 CAI with pics

Here are some pictures of my AFE stage 2 pro dry CAI on my 2012 Dodge Ram Express. I installed it myself in about an hour and a half. The hardest part was getting the air sensor out of the stock intake tube. If anything looks wrong please tell me.

It is definitely louder under the hood and my throttle response seems a bit better. I think it looks cool too

Looks like a clean install to me. No lines kinked or anything. Let us know what you think of it after a couple weeks. it looks good to me.

I know it hasn't been a week, but last night on the way home from work I floored it going up a decently steep bridge and the transition from gear to gear seemed a lot smoother. I could definitely hear the difference under the hood once it got in the upper RPM's

I was reading some threads on throttle body spacers. Everyone seems to have mixed opinions. You feel like the throttle body spacer was a good addition joelwalls?
And I have the cherry bomb extreme SI/DO with the stock catback system. I love how it sounds. My old truck was a v6, but this HEMI sounds awesome!!

Anyone who knows the principles behind a throttle body spacer knows that they do not work on fuel injected vehicles. The idea is that they swirl the air to allow it to mix with the fuel better but on fuel injected vehicles the fuel isn't injected in the throttle body.
