Default Cold air intakes

What's your RAM breathing through? Can you tell a difference? Would you buy it again? Let us know...

I've got an Airaid on my truck. Personally, I feel like all the major name brand CAI's offer about the same performance improvement. I wish I could have gotten a Ramhammer bc hey are sweet intakes but super pricey.

I have one of the ebay CAI with a K&N air filter. For a fraction of the price, you get 90% of the power and fuel economy increase.

i have the k&n 77 series havent noticed that much of a difference seems like my 4.7 sucked in alot more air that the hemi, i use to be able to hear the whistle of the intake but the hemi is much quieter

have the volant and love it. looks great under the hood, almost oem but performs soo much better. most intakes give the same gains so pick one and get it. whatever floats your boat. be prepared if you have exhaust already thatthe intakewill change the tone a little ( makes it deeper i think) and its AWESOME......

Ive been doin some homework on CAI's trying to pick out the one i want, i was heavily considering the Volant because later i want to add a SRT-10 style hood and you can get that hoodscoop attachment for the volant.

Anyone else have a volant intake that likes it ?
