Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

Thanks for the info. If it seals on all sides with the front corner, that's a big plus. Is there additional room for a larger paper filter? The cotton gauze filter's poor filtration is my only reservation.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

With forced induction engines I'm always scared of just adding something that alters fuel/air ratio with worries of leaning out. Not sure if it is such a problem with a modern turbo diesel. Less so with a drop in filter.

Diesels don't have lean and rich mixture issues like a gasser. Too rich makes excessive smoke (fills the dpf quicker), too lean reduces power. Neither is destructive to the motor within very broad limits. The A/F varies on diesels based on load and isn't constant.

that would be sweet! would be funny to have some diesels beating up on the SRTs. the wife said i cant play with this diesel's engine. think it freaked her out seeing the top end of the truck in pieces.

in regards to the intake, the biggest cork in the engine is on the hot side, so intake will change nothing but the sound.

still deciding between the diesel or hemi for my 15 summit

The way I see it - need v8 power and towing but don't want to buy mid grade gas and have to fill up often especially when towing or having the WK2 loaded even with just people and gear (no towing). Checking fuelly.com and fueleconomy.gov from owner reports and noting that EPA ratings for the diesel is on the low side (most owners get EPA or higher) whereas the Hemi EPA ratings (owners rarely get near EPA) so the payoff in better mpg delta is bigger than using the EPA sticker #s. I've been getting low 30's with mostly highway but some major traffic at times. Towing a 6k enclosed trailer I've been getting 16-17 mpg.

I get 17mpg around town while towing the boat. (That's including my lift, heavy tires, rack etc.) The load makes the intake/turbo sing. Love it! I even get a satisfying audible bypass valve "swoosh" when letting off the throttle.
