Default Cold air intake?

I have a 07 dodge ram 1500 hemi and i'm not sure if I should put a K&N 57-1533 intake system on it or just put a K&N drop filter in it.

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about posting a few photos of your truck?


I would go with a CAI as the factory system on your truck is fairly restrictive. You want to open it up as much as possible!

Agreed and it looks better also. I used a Spectre.

I have an 07 Hemi as well and just put a K&N CAI on it this past weekend and I love it. It sounds wicked, looks awesome under the hood, and gave it a little more pep off the line. The only downside so far is that I'm burning the gas pretty good because I love the sound it makes when I hammer down!

The drop in will get you a little bit of an increase but the open filter CAI gives you a LOT more.

I would go with the CAI. I didn't go with K&N I just ordered a Volant CAI. I didn't receive it yet, but I will have a write up on it next week!
