CAI seems like a hugely popular mod!

Anybody out there using a "cool can" setup? I used it on an old 440 Charger back in the day and it really helped with colder fuel vapor and also prevented "vapor lock", a problem common to HP engines in the summer time. I am toying with the idea of incorporating dry ice in a cool can setup. Comments?

cool, thinking of getting this one

I'm not sure if the "Active Intake Manifolds" have been brought up in this forum before, but I was wondering if anyone knows how/if a CAI affects how these intakes work? I understand the concepts behind active intake manifolds, but I'm unsure how the increased volume and turbulent air coming from a CAI affects it.

i have never understood why many of the "CAI's" are open at the top. I haven't looked at one with the hood closed and maybe they're designed to somehow draw additional cool air from a gap in the side of the hood. It does look at first sight though, that it just lets in hot air from under the hood. Puzzled

I myself: For what a owner pays for one of these so called CAI. I would at least expect a 5-7hp increase at the rear wheels. As well as a little extra torque.

I would like to see a 2014 5.7L sitting on a dyno! With at least 10 to 15 of these so called CAI in the waiting to be installed 1 at a time and tested.

I only want to see if there are any HP & Torque increases.

I don't care about any MPG increase! If I wanted that I would install smaller tires and lower the Ram. Try to drop as much weight as possible.

I want a controlled environment! This word of mouth, He Said-She Said does not mean squat!! As well as I felt this and heard that! Bla Bla!

In my eyes the Dyno is the only and true test! To actually see if these so called CAI actually do anything!

One thing I know! To filter more air in! You have to sacrifice Filtration! To me for a owner who is racing and rebuilding his engine after a few hundred passes. He don't care. For an owner who has plans on keeping his auto for 100K miles or more? It really don't make good sense.

This is just my opinion nothing more!!!

dynos's don't mean crap to me..anyone can skew a dyno record for marketing purposes. I do care what other's experiences (if they are reputable and their truck is faster then me)... I didn't get this quick lookin at dyno specs of certain nuts and bolts.. I've watched the experienced guys go thru trial and errors and know which guys I could believe in and which ones I don't...

Fred: I respect your opinion! I'm just talking about your Normal Average Owners who have basically STOCK trucks----> Then add a CAI-->Nothing More!


Also take note I said a Controlled Environment-->Which basically means No Manufactures involved.
