MINERvA’s first CCQE results preferred models with 2p2h-like enhancements. Since then work using an inclusive sample measuring reconstructed available energy and three momentum transfer has demonstrated the effect of adding in RPA and 2p2h components to our base GENIE simulation. Further modification via a fit to the inclusive data results in an empirical model which well describes the full two dimensional cross sections in lepton variables, transverse and longitudinal momentum, for both the neutrino and anti-neutrino cases. These cross section results will be compared to this new model as well as other models.
