don't expect much power gain though if you're running stock

Yea dude, the colorful vaccum lines and solenoids threw me off as well when i first saw them:wah?!:

dont even worry about them. they have nothing to do with the air box, just a comfortable place for dodge to mount them. Just dont pull any of them from their numbered solenoids, unscrew the two top screws on top of the air box, and take it off as one piece.





If you want to notice a difference for not that much $$$, just remove the stock air box and replace the paper filter with a stainless steel one. Basically the same thing as a regular short ram intake. Oh, and find a way to mount the solenoids...the guys at autozone hooked me up with this little rod that we screwed to the battery tray, and then tightened it down on a nut and screw-washer. works awesome.

I personally have an AEM (new style) CAI. I'm thinking about selling it and getting the JMBPerformance Ultimate CAI. :thumbsup: So I may be putting my AEM up for sell here pretty quick.

Yeah, ive got an ebay one that I'm either going to sell or just fabricate into short ram. My front end under the bumper/fiberglass is kinda warped due to an accident a few years back, so the splash shield wouldnt fit:crying:

Here is a pic of mine it is Fujita=Injen I love it. It comes with a bracket to mount your soleniods to the battery tray. I did have some fitment issues with the silicone coupler at the turbo but it was simple as trimming it down.

Save your money. Do more research. Intake will not add much to your driving experience. Get a Waste Gate Actuator, Exhaust ECT ECT. I would wait and purchase a used intake. I have an AEM (not on the car) but ended up putting my stock airbox back on. I noticed no change in the cars performance (at the track) with the AEM, but I only paid 90.00 for mine so no worries. I see no need to waste 200.00 for so little performance gain. Also stay away from the Ebay stuff, unless it's a system that has a Elbow that won't colapse under boost.

+1 on the research, I pretty much had the same mind set until I started hanging around in the performance section in the forums and doing research... just check out a couple of stickies, one says how to go 300hp on stock turbo and the other one is a tuning guide, they're both very helpful... if only I had the money :tongue:

The above posts are true. There is minimal gain in performance. I did mine strickly for looks. I hate the look of the big black box in the engine bay. Plus now you can hear that cool turbo whine!

There are other mods that are performance driven, this one was purely looks and it was bought from the F/S section from a member!

It is sexy but sorry I don't play for that team, nice try though :gay:

i got mopar n i love it



i noticed a difference in power n sound. it sounds really good when ur flooring it. n the mopar b.o.v. (came with car n want to change) was a lot louder. n i was able to notice the difference because i got it after an ebay intake. dont get shit from ebay unless its namebrand. my ebay inake didnt fit right n the sensor didnt fit either. plus it hit my hood.

I got an ebay intake for 50.00 shipped and it fit good and i have no problems with it at all, i just changed the filter out for a K$N one. I mostly did it for looks also, I noticed no gain in performance what so ever. Get a WGA before the intake, you will be happier in the end

There are some gains to be had with the CAI but they really dont start to show up untill you get the additional power adders. We have a CAI splash shield to just like the Mopar and the AEM but ours is stainless steel not cheap aluminum like the other guys. If you want to see it go here http://www.pt-performance.com/showProduct.php?vID=1&cID=11&pID=87

Thanks.
no disrespect intended. ur intake looks nice but honestly it adds little to no pwr! wat makes u think its worth $200? a map clamp is like $30-$60 and has a bigger gain... a wga is $100 and a 50X bigger gain then a cai or rai. just thought id ask u send ur a vendor. like i said no disrespect intended i just dont see how all these vendors think that intakes are worth this much..

I've had Mopar CAI, AEM CAI, JMB CAI, and nothing fits like K&N Typhoon! It can be both SRI or CAI, the fitment is clean with no trouble because all the brackets are adjustable. I also use the slash shield from PT-Performance.com for extra protection but the Typhoon comes with a water blocking filter cover.
