Thumbs up S&B cold air intake

Just installed the s&b cai in my 09 ram. Great sound, great fit. Looks really good next to that Hemi.

Mine is at home waiting for me to install! I'm back in town from business trip on Friday and will install Friday afternoon. I'm anxious to see what effect it will have on the mileage also.

So far I have seen a 2.5 mpg increase. That's with conservative driving, no highway, back country back roads mostly. I was getting average 14.4 so far I'm reading average 16.9 mpg. Hoping it stays that way but way to early to be sure its just not the computer trying to adjust to all that extra air. Will keep updating on that progress. Another plus throttle response feels like it has gotten slightly better. All and all very happy sound fronm cai pairs up nice with the 18" magnaflow.

Getting the magnaflow exhaust next week and plan on having the resignators taken out while they are down there. Will also be ordering the s&b intake as well to go along with it.

These are the trucks computer doing the calculations that's why I'm not to excited at this point I know it's not an exact spot on and there are errors with it.
