For it to be aligned perfect for best airflow it has to be without the lid. The only way the lid fits is if you push the intake down, the bend is off completely from the throttle body mouth. So I left the lid off and it's perfectly aligned. Check it out!

    Looks good, just had mine installed today as well. My shield is on but it is a tight fit and may rub some with engine movement. Overall good quality product. Haven't been able to open it up yet due to rain. Booooo.

    Lol can't agree with you more. Next stop 2.5 upper and some 1300cc injectors for e85 :)

    Did you remove the forward air duct? Looks like its still poking in there and blocking you from moving the intake down where its supposed to be.

    And we don't need a tune to run the intake or we do?

    And maxboost - you're not running anything to "protect" it and you don't have any water concerns?

    My fit was the same as the op. I shimmed the guard up by the bolt area with some rubber washers and all was good.

    No I didn't. I tried pulling it out, and in and it wouldn't come off it was bothering the hell out of me. How did you remove it?

    No tune needed, but it will def give you the most out of the intake. I'm just going to wait for the injectors, and do a cat delete before tuning on e85.

    See this Link as he has the most detailed install of this on a 2017 Charger and state how much of a PITA it was to remove the tube every question and detailed install is in his video.

    Thanks, just saw the video. Was cracking up half the time seeing how frustrated that guy was with the air duct. I'm going to be removing it in the next hour. I'll be posting up updated pics.

    Took the air duct out, what a work out! Here are the new pics with the intake twisted clockwise a little more aiming the intake lower to the ground. I can now put on the lid perfectly, but have chosen to just leave it off. I love seeing the huge red filter and carbon fiber peaking under the hood scoop lol

    - The tube is designed to enter the silicon coupler at a downward and back angle. Seems counter intuitive, but its done that way on purpose to fit the large filter and tube.

    - The front air inlet duct is a pain in the ass to take out of the chargers. btw..... did you take a look at how pathetically small the actual tube is? You are getting a ton more air flow without it

    - The vent in the hood above the filter is for heat extraction..... not pulling in outside air.

    Looks good and thanks for choosing LMI! Now go out a drive hard and report back on how much you love that blower whine!
