Default Thoughts on the Air Intake

I bought my Ram about 2 weeks ago and it came with an AEM Brute Force Intake. Any thoughts on if it is good or not? should i look into getting another one instead?

Gecko,

In my opinion, that intake is probably just as good as any other one. However, you should definately consider replacing the filter, there is no telling how long its been on there and would be the best bang for your buck as opposed to buying a whole new intake.

I agree with ^^^^ as they pretty much do the same thing. Most of them flow more air than you can cram into the intake manifold at one time anyway.

The biggest things to look for is smooth bends and transitions and a good filter.

AEM makes decent products that have been popular for a long time. I think yer good.

Almost all of the intakes they make are the same (other than the BFI or Vararam) so as long as you have a good filter on it you should be fine.

See if AFE or K&N have a replacement that will fit. No reason not to go with quality on a filter.

Also while looking at some filters I found something about the Weapon-R Ram Air Kit. I was kinda curious if this would actually do anything for me?

Heres a link to a little info about it incase you arent sure what it is:http://www.carid.com/images/air-filt...m-air-kit.html

The idea is good but there are some good DIY threads so you can save some coin.

Show off some pics of your engine bay too?

When you pick a filter try a dry high flow reusable instead of the oiled type. I feel like they are nicer since you don't have to deal with the re-oiling.
