did this on my 12 and drove it for a year with NO issues, heavy rain snow whatever. No dirtier oil, no check engine lights, no hotter engine temps, i mean its totally safe. any changes in incoming air are adjusted electronically...its 2012 for gods sake.
dont waste money on an aftermarket filter when the OEM one is so nice. I loved the sound, passengers hated it unless they were gear heads
Let me repeat myself, TOTALLY SAFE
