It sure would be great if we got some real world dyno readings with these before and after.

Yes, with no real expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for significant gains, then you'll be disappointed... with any aftermarket CAI.

Yeah, but I find that trucks are not as popular in the performance world as cars... My buddy has as Dynojet, and I have had a few cars dyno'ed, but the cost of pulls just evaluate the before and after readings of a CAI is not really worth it- especially when you already know that the gains are negligible. If I get a tuner, I might consider it...

Any thoughts about a home made CAI? I made one for my 2009 4.7L and it worked great. I'm waiting on my rubber 90 to make one for my HEMI. I don't see any difference in building my own and buying a 350$ K&N. Ill post pics when I finish. Ill see if I can find the pictures of my old one to see what yall think.

thats the intake i made for my 2009 ram 1500 4.7. going to do the same style just have to make it a bit different due to the intake placement on the HEMI. What do you think?

Nice! Whatever works for you, but I did not pay anywhere near $350... Regardless, your setup would be hard to beat for the price...

Looks decent, however I would have routed it more towards the front where the stock opening is located, if not all the way into the fender cut out.

You can always check out silicone intakes . com, they have everything under the sun to build your own intake.

I would imagine that a polished aluminum intake arm would definitely have better airflow than plastic.....Thoughts. Also, the sound might be a bit better having the aluminum than plastic

That would be the only advantage that I see! Problem is the price though!

Sweet and simple setup. My only concern would be hot air from the motor. Get your design into the fender to eliminate or reduce hot air would be even better. It still rocks for a home made setup. My K&N probably sucks just as much hot air.
