Won't be much of an improvement, and you want to eliminate the hemi hat, thats the most restrictive part. If you want to keep the oe box get an airaid mit tube.

I have that intake, Pat. I like it! It improved my throttle response quite a bit. My exhaust tone changed some as well.

It was my second choice behind the Volant that I have. It lost out due to the filter option of the Volant. I don't think there's a better filter out there right now that's better than the PowerCore from Volant.

Ram, yea I've looked into it but I'm not gonna pay 130 for a tube lol I'll cut my PVC pipe and connect it to the box but thanks for the input.

Michael, awesome! Glad to see a hemi out there with it and loved it! Ima look into it for sure, it's fully closed right? Or is the box cut on the outer part?

Barn, I want a volant but jeez they are so expensive! I just dropped $500 for my wheels jeez!

Someone on another forum is selling a silver Ram hammer w/ filter for $200.

BlackHemI 11-29-2011 11:25 PM

Hmm I've never seen that let me google the intake thanks Kay

what is this ram hammer ive googled it and it just keeps coming up with forum posts..... and where can u buy one or is this some make-shift cai

TheSatinPumpkin 12-03-2011 09:14 AM

It's a earlier design of the BFI. Its no longer available new so your best chance is buying used from someone selling theirs. Some say its looks like a "whale schlong" lol

Yeah, but 100k mile warranty on the filter (even if it only lasts 60-80k in dusty conditions) is worth something too. The way the PowerCore loads up as it gets dirty doesn't compromise filtration like other designs. It was worth the higher priced CAI (Volant) in order to be able to use the PowerCore.
