I like the veramram. Is anyone running this CAI and if so what do you think of it. PICs?

I can't decide between the K&N or the Volant, but to me it sounds like the Volant is the way to go... does anyone have any pictures of a Volant installed on an 09+ model?

thanks, that was fast! Definitely like the idea of the closed CAI over the K&N design.

I'm so confused here..... I just purchased an 11 R/T and one of the upgrades I was going to do was install a new CAI but I keep reading now that the new trucks such as mine really don't benefit from one? Is this so? If so then would changing out the stock filter to one of a better flow help any and if so just which filter do I need to look for?

..that's what's been said about 3rd gens too...but each level of cai mod that I have done has improved performance over the predecessor...
