You actually have to drive it more aggressively if you want to reset the adaptives for it to be slightly more aggressive

Problem with the K & N is that you cut the factory vent tube that connects to the K&N. So going back to stock means you need to go to a scrap yard and pull another tube. I find a bit of bogging at lower rpms. I'm seriously considering pulling it off, selling it and using the money for a tuner. Most of the power gains that they advertise are at high RPM's where, unless you own a gas station, you rarely are driving a HEMI powered Ram.

You answered your own question.

Truck was sold today [5/19]. I got an offer I couldn't turn down. I had no more need for a pickup so I cut it loose. About to purchase a '14 Jeep SRT8 this week.

Grub out!
