    I have a 3rd Gen (2017 V-6) with the aFe Cold Air Intake filter system. It works great. I would like to install the Redline Tuning Hood struts, but am wondering if there would be a clearance problem with the filter box and the passenger side hood strut. I have seen people with the S & B intake system, and that box does interfere with the hood strut. Anyone have the aFe system with the Redline struts? Do they clear each other? Thanks for any input!
