Looking at CAI for my truck. Everything keeps pointing towards K&N 57 series filter. Any thought?

Isn't the factory air intake the same as the one used on the 5.7 Hemi? From what I have read, an aftermarket intake won't really help the 4.7 much. For the redesigned, I think 2008+, 4.7 get a tuner for the best hp to dollar ratio. I read that here and did just that and was happy with the results although it calls for premium. Is it a race car, No, but its actually responsive now and does a descent job towing vs before.

Cold air intakes add nothing but put a big hole in your pocket.

Thanks guys. My ram is an 06. So would a tuner/programmer make a difference? Asking too cause I put bigger diameter tires on the truck so speedo is off. But when I go long distance I will be putting stock tires on. So will at least need to change speed calibration. Was looking at the new superhips. Kind of expensive so wanted to know if it's worth it with my engine. Thanks

The 4.7 already has cold air induction. Take a look at the plenum prior to the air filter.

If looking for the biggest gains if you put bigger rims on the best is gears if your 2wd and tuner if 4wd due to cost then tuner
