Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

Just won this item from Ebay for $275.00. It is used (supposedly 100 miles on it)seller assures that it has all parts and instructions. Pretty excited to get it and install it. I am mot a mechanic by any means, but I have installed things like this before on other cars i've had. Hoping that its not too difficult.

Im really looking fwd to a nice rumble at start up and under power.

Upside: NO TAX & NO SHIPPING FEES

Re: Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

Congrats, but that's still pretty steep for a used intake.

Re: Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

Perhaps, but if it truly has only 100 miles on it, it doesn't seem too bad to me. I guess I'll have to wait and see what kind of shape its in when I get it. I'll post some pics.

Re: Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

Just got my volant for $270 (new) to my door and I had itstalled in about 35 minutes. I really can't see the mopar being much more dificult. I would say my mechanic skills are only mediocre.

I looked into that one, but when I called my dealer they said that the mopar one is the ONLY one that would absolutely not have any effect on my warranty. I just didn't want to take any chances.

Re: Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

Before they can void your warranty, they have to prove what u installed is what caused the failure. Many threads about this on this forum.

True, but who wants the hassle? Honestly, I have read most all the reviews of the CAI systems on here and I cant really see one being far superior to the others. And pretty much all things being equal (in my opinion) I figure why invite the headaches with the dealer IF something does go wrong.

Just my opinion.........

Re: Just won a Mopar CAI on Ebay

you're not going to get a nice rumble from a CAI - consider a cat-back also
