I'm calling my contact at S&B Intakes tomorrow to find out it's authenticity and, if so, an ETA on its release.
I'll post an update tomorrow.
For those interested -
I spoke with S&B Filters' head tech this afternoon [awesome guy!]. The forum member who claimed to be working with their technical department is kind of
right; though it's not a direct correlation between the two parties
The product he's working with is a Scoop S&B Filters sent him for his 3rd Gen Ram 1500 and NOT
the 4th Gen Ram 1500, like I thought. This member was sent a Scoop in the hope of modifying it to fit his truck by removal of the lower valance among others. He was after THIS
type of Ram Air Scoop finish as opposed to just the drop type we currently have available. His success will obviously depend on many factors as to whether it sees the light-o-day.
Tech also told me that they DO have plans for a Ram Air type of Scoop for the 4th Gen Ram 1500's but nothing was definitive as yet. The issue? Our 4th Gen Ram 1500's are a little too nose-deep in the front end [OEM] and S&B Filters are afraid of bottoming-out.
They are hoping for a 2013 release as intrest has been apparent but, again, nothing is cemented.
Hope this helped.

See my sig for my exhaust choice.
