I have general ideas on CAI's from reading the forum and have come to two finalist:

The S&B kit:

or the Vararam Air Grabber:

http://www.vararam.com/air-grabber/air-grabber.html


I'm a little iffy on the Air Grabber, seems like it covers a lot of surface area where it grabs air in front of the rad...not sure I like that but I really don't know?? The S&B has a really informative Web sit :www.sbfilters.com. They disclose testing procedures etc.

Any input would be appreciated

I bought the Air grabber for my 2500, because I liked there policy, If you don't like it, If it doesn't preform like they say it should send it back and they will pay shipping. No one else offers that... I had a Volant on for about 3 days and i didn't like the way it fit. I think the S&B is a great CAI.

I second that notion.

what do you mean covers a lot of area?? its only about a 3 inch lip or so, doesn't cover much


Did you feel their claims are well founded and not just numbers thrown at us. I feel 30 HP on a stock motor from just an intake is hard to swallow. However I am more interested in the 1-2 MPG increase, did you notice an increase in your fuel economy? :thk:
