Cold Air Intake
 
I have a 2010 Dodge Ram Laramie Crew Cab 4x4 just wondering what would be the best Cold Air Intake system to get for my truck...what will give me the Most HP gains I was looking at K&N just don't know what series to get or if another brand is better ...I appreciate all responses

I put the K&N CAI on my truck and noted an immediate difference. That was just over a year ago now. I believe the cast was around $400 installed.

There seems to be 3 different "camps" when it comes to air induction systems.
1. All they do is look good and make a lot of noise, maybe some slight mileage gain and even less performance gain.
2. After I installed it I go much faster, do wheel stands and get 10 mpg more.
3. I get some gain in mileage and my seat of the pants dyno says I get a little bit better performance, but not as much as advertised.
Suprisingly enough the stock set up does a pretty good job by just adding a drop in filter such as a K&N. And it's a lot cheaper too.

^^^Yup this is pretty accurate. If you truly feel the need to replace the stock unit I would simply suggest getting one that is an actual CAI. Not one where the filter is in the engine compartment with all the hot air.

There have been about a million posts and opinions expressed on this subject already on this web site.....I would take your time and review them and possibly the web sites of the CAI manufactures your considering....should help with your decesions

I am a Volant fan....better filter, better intake tube, still closed off from the engine bay and a scoop coming for ram air in the winter!

WIN!

Personally i beleive intakes add some performance over stock. In my old car (cobalt) i dropped 3 tenths and gained 4 mph in my 1/4 mile time with just an intake swap.
