Afe vs airaid
 
So I have narrowed down to the afe and airaid intake. They seem to be most popular among the 4th gen owners. Had a k&n intake on a different vehicle, wasn't that impressed with the quality and fitment

I've ran an Airaid for about a year now, no complaints from me

However the Volant is likely going in next when they release a lower bumper Ram-Air scoop option, slated for release October/November.

Notice any performance gains from your intake?

BlackRamHemi 08-18-2011 06:55 PM

I've noticed minimal gains from almost all my minor bolt-on mods on their own...
They are all really just "supporting" mods and no single one produces more than a few ponies alone.

I recently Dyno'd my Ram and its actually lower than many stock Rams are posting LOL!

IMHO, Real "Performance" Gains come from:
Cams/Heads/Headers/Lower Gears/High Stall Torque Converters.
But they don't always work well together unless you start with the three basics. Intake/Exhaust/Tune.

Just pick one that looks pretty, sounds good and doesn't break the bank.
You really cant go wrong cuz ALL aftermarket CAI's still use the same sized stock limited fender opening.

A good read on that with Pic's and explanation here:

Any news from Adidas about the release of the Vararam?

I will sell you my brand new afe kit for $230 shipped - only has 5 miles on it - I don't like the noise

TORMENTOR 08-18-2011 08:37 PM

I live out in canada, shipping and border fees wouldn't be pretty

Chuckie, interested in cai, sent you a PM.

Although I've modded my Airaid to seal it up and added a lower ram-air tube, If I was buying a new intake today, it would likely be the Volant,
It's rumored they will have an optional feed from the lower bumper for a ram air tube available in November for the 4G Hemi.

not exactly as shown (Yukon/Denali scoop)

Kay9: Vararam is getting the metal mold made right now for it, so maybe a month or so and they will be mass producing.....talked to Steve at Vararam a few times now, and I will continue to call and bug him every week until I get one! :)

I will be getting a Volant until then! :)
