A big Hello and a Warm Carolina WELCOME! I hope you make the most of the best RAM ForumZ on the Web!

The CAI, clean exhaust and a tuner should help a little. Mostly driving habits affect the MPG. Also, you might check to see what gear ratio you are running and what size tires are you carrying?

Be sure to use the link in my SIG to check in as a NEWBIE and get the recognition as a new member. Oh, Yea, one more area I'd like to invite you to is our Red RAM social group. Be sure to post lots of photos to keep everyone happy.

Looks like it will work well and the price is right. Too bad they don't have that one for the Gen 4.

Slightly cheaper here:

Jegs usually charges a handling fee so it'll be $12.99 or so usually higher than the Jegs listed price.

spectre is alright for the price. You wont get the million mile warranty like you will with K&N or airaid. The filter will wear out quicker and not give you as many performance gains. But they are considerably cheaper so you will be able to replace the filter.

Nice. I would compare the IAT temperatures between you current and the Spectre 9932 to see if there is a difference with that type of tube.
