1st of all, It Looks 10 times better than any other CAI, (IMHO)

The tube as a nice smooth arc to it, and the box is positioned toward the fender port instead of 90º like the Airaid.
The powercore filter takes in air from the end, not the sides so its a more direct path to the throttle body now.



install was pretty simple, only about 10 minutes (no engine cover and re-used the Airaid's breather tube)

Pipe insulation installed and pinched to close the slight gap at the fender:


Not being the patient type, I wasn't satisfied to wait for Volants release of their lower scoop in November
...besides our Track closes after the first week in Oct.

So now I have Dual 3" feeder tubes to my air box, one to the stock fender port,
and one directly to the bottom of the Volant box, But BOTH force fed and Ram'd from the front bumper opening.

I know a smooth tube would be better than the ribbed flex tube,
but for now this works and I'm out less than $20 total until the scoop is available.



View from the Bottom looking up (Left tube goes to the air box, Right goes up the fender)




View from below where the tube enters the lower port on the Volant box.



My Butt Dyno tells me this is the Best CAI setup you can do on a 4G Ram.
Official track slips will be available at the end of the month.
that about covers my findings for now until I get back to the track for some actual track slips
