Go read some info on Donaldson nano technology filter media.
Volant offers theirs with the Donaldson Power core filter, I just bought one and that is the reason I went with the volant, just for the better filtration.

Amsoil used to offer Donaldson planer type filters for the standard air boxes but they were pricey and didnt sell to well so they recently dropped them. I have them for my WJ and Durango.

Some literature to read.

Re: CAI - Does it help??

Look at the chart from K&N. the HP curve is nearly identicaly until 5200rpm. The AFE is almost the same...
so far. the CAI for the grand, is nothing more than bypassing the "noise reduction boxes" on the factory air intake.
It WILL give you a 10-11 hp gain, at 5200 rpm... and make a sound louder.
MPG is probably not noticible, and will get worse if you actually get to 5200rpm to fell the 10hp difference.

Re: CAI - Does it help??

^^speaking of those "noise reduction boxes"....


was given an Airraid intake as a gift. Been good for couple years now, but it's only the box and filter. Tube going from box to engine is just the stock. Just purely for sound, anyone know if changing the tube to straight is going to give a good bump in the sound?


TL;DR - Does most of the sound come from the cone filter or the aftermarket tube?

Re: CAI - Does it help??

So in the end, the people that are happy with their cai like the roar when stepping on the gas pedal and this makes the experience seem more powerfull. That works for me!

Re: CAI - Does it help??

The volant is nice peice with the Donaldson filter. And yes you hear the engine noise when you step on it. It also removes the clutter in the engine bay in front of the engine.

So you get better filtration with the Donaldson media, less clutter in the engine bay and get to hear the Hemi sing when you mash the gas!

Re: CAI - Does it help??

I have an aFe CAI with the Diablosport tuner. I personally noticed a difference with the acceleration and mostly with the smoothness of the transmission being able to shift MUCH smoother than stock tune. The tuner really did more than the CAI did. I just ordered the Gibson Axle back for my 3.6- looking forward to completing the total set-up of having the tuner, CAI, and soon the Exhaust.

Re: CAI - Does it help??

I just added the Sprint Booster power converter to my 3.6. It will do what you guys are looking for without adding noise. Crisp, responsive throttle, lag was eliminated. Auto mode feels like an enhanced sport mode. It gets the Governors stamp of approval.
