Thumbs down cold air intake

hey guys i'm new to the forum. I have a ton of questions about my truck. So let me ask my first one. I have a 98' Ram 1500 V8 magnum sport. I'm very interested in installing a cold air intake system, but I'm not sure of which brand or size or really anything about it. I've gone to my local Pep Boys and Auto Zone and of course they want to sell me their brands they have, but I'm not sold on them yet. What do you guys think on the subject?

Welcome to the Z!

Most of the CAIs you see on the market aren't cold air intakes at all, they are short ram intakes, and they will give you moderate gains at best. A true cold air intake pulls air from outside the engine bay entierly so you want to look for ones that are sealed and pull from areas far from the engine and rad.

Best ones I've seen are the Volant powercore and the AFE stage II. But you will see very similar gains as the more common K&N or AirAid.
