Default fabbed up ram air

built a ram air for my cold air intake, costing just under 20 bucks. made from duct work, a rectangle floor piece and a straight piece of duct piping. its mainly for highway speeds, but cruising it works too! the theory was to improve upon the already awesome CAI, and this flows fresh air to the filter while the ram is moving. the first pic is all the parts i used, second is to the left of the radiator, i removed the flap in that spot and installed the floor duct, rivited in place, shown in pic three. pic four shows the hole drawn out that i cut into the CAIs box, and the final pic is the final outcome. cant really see it, but ive also applied silicone around all the connections on the box and the floor duct. and yes it has improved my highway mpg about 2 mpg bringing this lifted tank to around 17 mpg highway. not too shabby, as long as i keep my foot off it.

Awesome job, I will be doing this mod soon. And Congrats on having the Ram running at 246k miles. Mine hits 200k in about 800 miles.

well its been a few weeks with this mod now and its given me the chance to play with it a bit. Highway MPG has improved about 1 - 2 mpg like i intially stated (ill take all i can get!) and the throttle response at highway speeds has imporved, great for passing fords. Still running strong!
