I myself: For what a owner pays for one of these so called CAI. I would at least expect a 5-7hp increase at the rear wheels. As well as a little extra torque.
I would like to see a 2014 5.7L sitting on a dyno! With at least 10 to 15 of these so called CAI in the waiting to be installed 1 at a time and tested.
I only want to see if there are any HP & Torque increases.
I don't care about any MPG increase! If I wanted that I would install smaller tires and lower the Ram. Try to drop as much weight as possible.
I want a controlled environment! This word of mouth, He Said-She Said does not mean squat!! As well as I felt this and heard that! Bla Bla!
In my eyes the Dyno is the only and true test! To actually see if these so called CAI actually do anything!
One thing I know! To filter more air in! You have to sacrifice Filtration! To me for a owner who is racing and rebuilding his engine after a few hundred passes. He don't care. For an owner who has plans on keeping his auto for 100K miles or more? It really don't make good sense.
This is just my opinion nothing more!!!
