Default K&N Cold Air Install help

So my lady bought me a K&N CAI for xmas and I was reading over the instructions and came upon a hump. Basically if my vehicle has a air injection valve i need to install the bracket one way. Then it appears to mount on the cyl. head with the ground strap. If my vehicle doesnt have an air injection vavle then i need to install a different bracket and mount it to the resonator mount on the intake manifold. In short I have no idea if i have an air injection valve on my hemi or not. Its a 2008. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!


Jim

never heard of an air injection valve on a hemi..only thing that runs to it is the iat sensor and a breather from oil cap...

from what i noticed on mine i just installed 1 last week. its the egr system is what they are talking about. you need the longer bracket that bolts on the manifold. also your iat sensor is going to be a pita to put in cuz the stock wires a just a tad short, however it will stay in

I got everything in - pretty straight forward however putting the sensor into the rubber grommet was a nightmare in itself. What a TIGHT fit holy cow - but we got there. Thanks again for the tip about the installation on the manifold. I took her for a test run and at an idle you dont notice much - when you accelerate normally its a tad louder to the trained ear. BUT when i got to a stop light and laid that hammer down wow did it sound PISSED!!! I realize its a pickup and its light in the rear end but never have i smoked the tires like that before. Def increase in power but man i love that sound.

i have been looking into getting a air filter system on my 2009 ram 1500 5.7l slt but i have noticed that you can buy air filter kits off ebay for around 35-70$ with a k and n airfilter. Compared to 250$ for the k and n kit. does anyone no if there is a big difference. i dont have much money to spend thats why i am asking. thanks http://www.ebay.com/itm/DODGE-RAM-15...644c3f&vxp=mtr

brap from what i have gotten is mainly the knowing the big name kits will fit with ease. i to was tempted by a cheap ebay one but i figured i love my truck so if i gota splurge i gota splurge. USERJ i got a predator with his tuning and its great i did not want a trinty (window stuff is ment for diesel in my opinion) find a used pred on here or ebay can't go wrong and it will be half of that 600$ easy
