For the Raptors/Tremors that are most recently built (~ April 2022), the air deflector in front of the air inlet has an updated opening to allow more air flow. Additionally, christmas tree clips with "firs" have been eliminated and have been updated to the 2 piece push in style rivets as Gen 2 trucks. Service part number is ML3Z-19E525-B for those looking to change the air deflector.

One other thing that i noticed while looking is that the intake seems to be really restricted by the hood. I used some black chalk on the intake and can see where its contacting the hood. Looks like dang near half the intake is blocked by the hood...

The hood seals around the perimeter of the air inlet to prevent hot engine air from entering the intake.

Right. Was just surprised that half the inlet surface area is completely sealed off by the hood.

Someone want to explain to me why the Tremor even has a 3.5ECO engine?

I thought it was supposed to be an animal.

@4rdFan Thanks for the photo of the revised part. I'm probably just going to cut mine open until the new one comes in.
