engine sluggish after k&n cai install
well i put a k&n cai on my 07 ram 1500 2 weeks ago, i have noticed that its abit sluggish around 15-1800 rpm when driving, is this normal or could it b because im using stock exhaust and not tuned yet, other then that it works great, sounds great.:box:

So it is between 15 and 1800? Cause I never knew the Hemi revs to 11800 haha

Well is the filter clean? It could be cause you have no where to have the extra air to go, I think an exhaust will make it a lot better!!

haha, yep thats alot of rpm, i fixed it ,lol

ScatPak07 04-02-2010 08:54 PM

haha I was gunna say you got a F1 motor in there!!

I do not know if I am right about everything being alright with the truck. I installed my CAI at the same time as my predator, I never felt anything wrong. I added the exhaust after those 2 nothing felt restricted. Maybe without the programmer it is lacking i breathnig

Im not thinking clearly I dunno if that makes sense haha

yes ScatPak07 might be right check your throttle body see clean make sure your air way is good

yeah i will check it out,when i took off the stock air intake the filter was in bad shape, so maybe a good cleaning is in order.
