Re: eBay Intake turned out quite the deal haha

OP: Could you clarify the vendor you purchased from? Looking for something for my 3.7, but don't want to drop $300 on it.

Found this on eBay, is it the same thing you purchased?

It looks very close... I'm sure it's the same but not the same vender. Check out the link I put up on the first page and search his other items

Ah, missed the link initially. Doesn't appear he offers anything for the 3.7.

Ive seen the ebay ones. They are not true cai's. They are the same style as my injin short ram and stop behind the head light. To be a true cai it must drop down into the bumper or wheel well so that its drawing air from outside and not the hot air from the engine bay

Re: eBay Intake turned out quite the deal haha

Maybe I'm missing something here, but wouldn't a metallic CAI kind of miss the mark for the purpose here? The great thing about the rubber/plastic CAIs is how much thermal insulation they have to guard against heat being absorbed into the air from the surrounding materials under the hot-a$$ hood. The point there being to cool down the IAT sensor.

If the IAT sensor isn't cool, then it's not going to make much of a difference because the computer won't adjust for the cooler temperature. Especially if you're using the stock IAT sensor, which is very close to the wall of an IAT, it must read a lot of extra heat from the metallic CAI. Consider replacing your IAT with the one from the Challenger, which puts the sensor closer to the center of the tube at least.

Just my $0.02. After reading countless threads on the matter on these boards, I ended up going with the SRT8 OEM CAI with the Challenger IAT. As per my ScanGaugeII, when driving highway speeds, my IAT is within 2 degrees of ambient, which is about the best you can ask for on a WK IMHO.
