The intake seals around the hood and has a air grabber that sits infront of the radiator a bit and grabs air coming in from your grill and rams it into the intake..so its a ram air system and its cool fresh air .. i got it from vararam , there a site sponsor
is there an audible "sucking" noise that comes along with this intake? I've had several cold air intake systems on trucks before, and when you get on the gas you can clearly hear some of them taking in more air...just curious...i'm looking into buying me an air grabber for my '10 ram laramie...everything i've read says they're the best!
When i rev it up i can hear it sucking in air..i dont hear it when driving though ..on most intakes where the filter connects to the air tube there is a edge that when air passes over it creates that sucking sound,the vararam intake has a rounded inlet where the pan connects to the hose for better flow, so you dont get quite as much sucking sound but you get better air flow
Thanks SPEEDFRREAK, that's very helpful. Do u know if they will work without a fan shroud? I'm thinking about goin dual electric fans which I believe eliminates it. Do u have one of this awsome lookin intake systems?
