Honestly the K&N for the 4th GM Rams would probably be my last choice. It looks really cheap and under performing to me.

The most popular choices are the S&B and the Vararam. The Vararam will by far give you the most power and torque gains. The S&B will help a little bit but it will be hardly noticeable. Both are great products though.

Contact Andrew or Jeremiah at Discount Auto Performance. They'll hook you up with the best pricing on either one.

I agree Vararam is one of the best products I have seen hit the market for these trucks, best power, IMO looks the best, and great customer service and tech department at Vararam what more could you ask for

OP thanks for reaching out to us.

Brandon thanks for the Referral again

Thanks
