The kit installed easily on my '07 Durango Hemi with only one exception. The air temp. sensor was a little difficult to remove from the stock plenum, it turned opposite from the instructions. My install time was about 70 minutes. This kit was much easier to install on the Hemi than one I installed on my older 5.9L Durango. After reading other reviews I was a little concerned about the noise it would make (like turning over the air cleaner on an old '70s GM), however, there was no noticable increase in noise (this may be disappointing to some). So far, I'm getting about 0.5 to 1.0 mpg better. The engine runs/idles fine, I read one review that questioned the filter messing up the engine management control, maybe that person broke the air temp. sensor or didn't get it connected back correctly got frustrated and gave up ... anyway mine works fine. It looks great in the engine compartment. I like the metal/chrome tube better than the grey plastic air tube. The one in my older Durango cracked requiring some JB Weld to hold it together.
