Default Best CAI

I just got my 2012 Ram 1500. An I'm also not the biggest motorhead my brother and dad take that part of the family. But i want to do some things to the truck eventually. I was just curious as to which CAI would be my best bet. Overall quality for the money being important.

It really depends on what it is you're wanting out of a CAI. More flow or more sound? The stock air box is so well made that all you really need to add is a high flow filter element(i.e., K&N, Spectre). But if it is growl from the engine intake ya want then the S&B, Volant, AFE, AEM, Banks, Injen, RBP, Spectre, Airaid, and K&N CAI system are all infamous for that. Sorry gents if I forgot any. Now if you want more volume of "RAM"med outside air, then the Air Grabber is the one. So many decisions, so many choices. smileup:

Thanks for the info !! If noise isn't my biggest concern would just getting a high flow filter element be my best bet ?

Most definitely bud. Later down the road if you ever wanted to try, check out some threads about how other forum members have modded their stock box for more outside air, (i.e., flex tubing and duct vents).

Either a high flow drop in filter or a new CAI, a catch can in my opinion is an absolute must. These two things are definitely a great place to start.
