I'm leaning towards the Mopar CAI. Nice package has a dry filter and he box fully encloses the filter and pulls cold air in from outside the engine bay, using the factory venting in the fender. looking at a bunch of CAI testing on line and it points to pulling the air in from outside the bay is the key. An open CAI just sucks in warm air and all the testing on line has shown you get less power then the factory air box.

Lots of cold air in Ontario Canada -20C today, snow is very crunchy.

Does Mopar make a CAI for the 3.6 Pentastar? if they do I would be more inclined to buy that, then from K&N

Mopar does sell CAI for the 3.6 but I'm not sure if they do for the 3.6 in the Ram.
I think what ever one you get it needs to pull cool air in from outside the engine bay by using the venting in the side fender. Others may you just need to be sure.

this is the description and price is 320.00
The K&N 77-1564KS high-flow performance air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup and Ram 1500 models. The restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing on your vehicle are replaced by this K&N air intake system which is designed to dramatically reduce air flow restriction as it smoothes and straightens air flow. The improved air flow allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than it would from the stock air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout your engine’s RPM range. The 77-1564KS air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield with a replacement air scoop that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through the intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive silver powder-coated finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory air inlet temperature sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a screwdriver, ratchet set and an Allen wrench. Some K&N 77 series air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

I had a cold air intake on my 2005 Ram Hemi, honestly I don't think it changed the performance at all, but it did open the sound of the Hemi, sounded pretty badass! Not sure it will really do much for performance on the Pentastar and I don't think I'd like to make it louder..lol

I'm curious to hear it though if you do it, please post pictures and videos with sound if you can.

I know someone said this already but I'm saying it again. A legendary build, at least in progress. I think you are doing more to the Pentastar then anyone else, I'm looking forward to hearing how all this turns out.
