Help! Help! Best CAI on a budget
 
I have a 2008 big horn, just bought the predator programer, just wondering if I could get away with a CAI cheapo from ebay. Your help would be great. I do plan on doing the exhaust from cats back also.

I had a eBay $60 cheap-o on my '06 and got continuous codes - replaced it with a K&N and the codes stopped. If you can't afford a good one just buy a drop in filter until you can do it right.


Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about dropping by the Newbie Checkin and introducing yourself and posting a few photos of your truck?:Hey:

Thanks Red. What one would you consider going with? Or any one with input.

build your own, just make sure to hook up all the vacuum lines and such. get a filter and vacuum line kit and hit the hardware store.

Whe you say you kept getting codes, do you mean your Check engine light kept coming on??

And IMO make your own! Cheap cheap cheap and performs well!!!

With the time and money spent youl'd be better off getting made to fit CAI. I went with Spectre.

BlackHemI 07-21-2011 01:17 PM

Agree spectre is awesome! Lots of guys will argue Its the same as k&n

Spectre, Mopar or an AFE are all good units. K&N will work, too.

Just stay away from the eBay cheapies...some have really cheap filters that can come apart and get sucked into the engine!

A really good intake for the money is the airaid jr kit (alot of guys wish they still made them). It will give you the same results as the others. I bought my MIT for about $90-$100 (don't remember) of amazon or somewhere, and the filter off ebay for $50, I got the dry filter.

how much you willing to spend on a cai...I'm really thinking of selling the vararam I have here just sitting...I originally bought it to switch back and forth with the BFI i have but I love the BFI too much to swap back and forth... I wanted to test it at the track to see if one is obviously better then the other... but I don't know...
