Air Intake
 
Does anyone have this intake? If so how is it? I did a search and couldn't find anything.

Ive never seen it on a Ram but Ive seen a few pictures of SRT cars with it.

IDK how i would feel about having two open element filters in the engine bay. Seems like it might turn into a "hot air intake" very quickly

I was kinda of thinking the same thing. It looks pretty cool though.

ive seen it on another forum, sucks great but to me its all hot air unless you got a sport hood or getting cold air to it...you could always fab something up with it!

yep it looks slick but will hurt performance/mpg unless you shield it to some cool air.

That one is for a lx 5.7/6.1/6.4 manifold but there are MUCH MUCH cheaper ones for the 3G 5.7 that are used. Some tend to also buy the single intakes and then piece to have dual turn downs to the fender.

Maybe with the above example you can get some idea to route it on a 4G 5.7L manifold

exactly Kay, perfect pictures for examples. what is that a spectre CAI system?

I think he (HEMI450HP) mentioned the ebay vendor was chromeintakes

You can try that store or maybe get a couple of these

You could make one that picks up air from tubes attatched to the front bumper somehow (i believe Bordin did something like this, i know someone just did) But cut out park of the lower grill and get ram air from there.

Being that our Hemi's are SD tunes it makes the "custom CAI" not as big of a problem and open to a lot more ideas
