Some sales data that backup 310 performance over the 311:

Go with the dry filter. IMHO, oiled filters do not belong under the hood...

Re: Finally! CAI for Pentastar!

Dry vs. oiled. There was a big debate about this. If you do some googling you will find bunch of info about this. I had oiled filters before and decied to go with dry one this time.

Re: Finally! CAI for Pentastar!

Thanks guys, sorry for being a bit lazy!

Somewhere I read something about the CFM needed per engine displacement and such things... so I am curious if the dry AirAid filter will allow enough CFM for the Pentastar. Acording to those Dyno Sheets both provide the same hp/tq performance increase... So if we trust all sales data , it seems dry will be ok.

Re: Finally! CAI for Pentastar!

Looks like I am going to go for the AirAid non-oiled. Does this add to the engine sound?

Also, will the K&N 77 fit on my 2012?? I have a 2012 3.6 and it only shows the application for the 2011.
http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...rod=77-1560KTK

I am stuck deciding between the two. I noticed that mopars kit will be using an arm like K&N, however Airaid uses the stock. Are there advantages to having the aftermarket arm?

Regular straight intake pipe without air chamber will give you louder sound but less low end torque. I spoke with Airaid and because of that reason, they decided to utilize OEM intake pipe.

Airaid CAI gives just enough added sound but not too loude.

Re: Finally! CAI for Pentastar!

I picked up Airaid (dry) as well. It's coming today. It was only $160ish shipped from autoanything.

Is there more advantage if using the Mopar one other than sound? I do not think I would want to give up low end torque, I think the 3.6 is sluggish enough on the low end.

I had the Volant on a previous Yukon and likes it a lot. Too bad there's not one on the horizon.

Re: Finally! CAI for Pentastar!

I think Volant has us on their "wanted donor list", but that could still mean it's 6-12 months out for production (assuming someone gives them their V6 WK2 for awhile).
