AKRamz is on a distinguished road
Default 2011 2500 5.7 HEMI Cold Air Intake?

Hello,
I just traded in my F-150 and purchased my first Ram... I'm loving this truck! Wish I would have made the switch sooner!

I'm looking into a cold air intake to increase MPG. Any recommendations for the 2011 Ram 2500 with a 5.7L??

Thanks in advance,
Terry

Welcome to Ram country Terry!!

Im running an Airaid Intake on my baby, a lot of members run it too. Volant is another good company thats been running a lot.


To be honest, just an aftermarket air intake will not make a "drastic" drop in mpgs. You will notice shes breathing better and will be a touch more peppier. Maybe a point something difference.

Im running a bored out Fastman TB, intake, and magnaflow catback and my liters per 100km only dropped 2 pushing 3 if I baby it, depending how I drive and on the conditions. But believe me after adding on those, you have a heavier foot.

Anyways, other members will share their inputs too, but if your looking for drastic changes in mpg. Might be hard to achieve.

There are a lot of great CAI's out there and some are easy on the wallet while some will leave nothing but dust in your wallet. I went with the Mopar CAI's just so I would still be covered on my warranty, but it was one of the more expensive ones. Here is it below.
And like Bordin, I added the bored out Fastmans TB and magnaflow exhaust with Y-pipe. I couldn't tell you if I get better gas milage but I don't drive it to get better MPG.
