Hey guys,

I just joined the forum (Ill try to update my profile shortly, but I wanted to throw my 2 in on this one).

I built a CAI and relocated the AIT sensor to the intake tube just behind the air filter. It worked well on my 99 Dakota, and seems to be doing the job on the ram as well. Just another option!

May be a stupid question but does the air temp sensor move in location at all or does the Powerwire "trick" the air temp sensor in thinking the temp is less?

Just curious. Need to look at my Airaid CAI and see if the power scoop would work. I like more torque and HPs!
