Airaid air intake

What do you think about it? Both 3.6 and 5.7

SynthaFlow - http://www.airaid.com/ProductDetail....ductID=310-212
SynthaMax - http://www.airaid.com/ProductDetail....ductID=311-212

What's the difference?

Non-oiled filtration technology - SinthaMax. Does not matter, I think

Re: Airaid air intake

Good on them for re-using the stock cold air snorkle, hope that does not choke it too much.

Re: Airaid air intake

Interesting, but I'm not sure if this would get any better flow than a drop-in K&N filter.

+1, i was wondering if it was worth it to just extend the Bwoody tube to the Airraid heat shielded and snorkeled filter. That said, perhsps the stock intermediate box is needed for initial air supply vs waiting on small snorkel feed.

I was thinking the same thing.

Re: Airaid air intake

For me it is not just flow. What ever that tube is from the factory, I can't hear my Hemi. I want to hear it. That is why I like it the Airraid.

Re: Airaid air intake

You won't hear it with this, either. It maintains the stock tube from the factory. All it does is replace the airbox with a heat-shielded filter element. So, the silencer baffle near the throttle body is still in place. There shouldn't be much of a change in sound at all.

Re: Airaid air intake

Yeah, for $229, I'm more inclined to buy a factory intake box and hack it up to look like the airraid. Already have a bwoody that I took off. Should be minimal fabricating to hook it into the stock airbox. However, the wife is unlikely to let that project get above the 432 other items on my standing punch list...

$220 for a shield and filter??!!
I assumed it had the tube also for that price.
I'm out.
