[PHOTOS] Ported throttle body install, custom intake
 
Met up with a guy that runs a dodge performance business in Houston, TX and got a ported throttle body. I can feel the difference in the throttle response and pick up. I would recommend a ported throttle body over OEM. 12-24 HP bolt on

I also wanted to share some tricks about the rams intake system, and the proper way to get it set up.

Heres some side by side photos of the TB, new one on the left

Here is my setup

I used a piece of rubber bike tire around my air intake temp sensor, I have battled an air leak here for quite some time, but now have 100% of my air intake coming through the filter.

The other part of what I did was cut off the crankcase from the cold air intake.

And on the cold air intake port for the crank case I used another piece of tire to seal it off

I run a Huge Spectre cone filter

Yes, much better throttle control and response.

I think ur ported and non ported pictures are backwards, the non ported one has the small slit at the top. It will definitely improve throttle response but I think no more than 12 HP and that's working in conjunction with your C.A.I. Thanks for the pics though!

Nope, I checked them and I have everything labeled correctly. The ported one is the one with the slit at the top

So who is the guy you bought the TB from?

Website, number?

How are you so certain of the hp increase? Dyno proven?

I'm not doubting you, just curious how you got the specific numbers.

Ok, the reason I thought that is because here is what mine looked like
