CAI opinions wanted....
for the ram 1500 5.7l v8, any opinions on what CAI to use?

Volant makes a great CAI. AirRaid is also pretty darned good.

Volant, AirRaid, Afe, K&N, basically any name-brand are good. Just make sure they the one you buy has a heat shield, or it's not really a "cold" air intake.

I have a k&n adds some noticable power ...but the most noticable is the engine sound which happens to be about 10 times louder then stock.

Is the K&N comparable with Volant etc?

not in my opinion. For starters, the Volant comes with a much better, DRY filter. It's worth the little bit extra IMHO.

Well i went with the K@N, WOW the sound is differant. I think the performance is better as well, it really takes off when you step on it. Not sure how much the differance would make on a stock truck sense i already had Thorely long headers installed. Maybe a little backwards but at least its done now. Im glad i did it though, and everyone else on the forum is right, the mpgs dont go up very high cause the "heavy foot disease":smileup:

This may be a dumb question but can a CAI be used year round? I thought I read somewhere you cant when its cold and there is snow etc.

My 2011 Laramie came with a Mopar CAI. I bought it in December, so I'd say it works in the winter.

The stock 09 engine has a pretty good factory CAI. And its quieter.
