Field Day!!

So, as most of you know I had the opportunity to go down to Martinsville and meet up with the guys from Arrington Engines to get a test fit on their new CARBON FIBER CAI. This thing is a monster! From the factory throttle body this beautiful, lightweight intake expands to a whopping 6 inch diameter! This creates a roar from your HEMI like non other, which easily overpowers my exhaust. Don't go thinking it's annoyingly loud, because it's far from it. Just enough noise to get you grinnin' and get your girlfriend pissed. As a matter of fact, I managed to get beside a stock WK at a stoplight on the way home, so... I jumped on it! As he gazed in utter disbelief that the monster he just heard was actually coming from beneath my hood! I know it probably sounds like I'm droning on and on about the sound, but it's honestly that good. Performance wise; I instantly noticed significant gains in throttle response, as well as top end speeds. It's only been on for highway driving, but I'll keep you guys posted as the week progresses on city performance. All in all, from aesthetics, to quality, to sound and performance... Arrington Engine's is a force to be reckoned with!
Enjoy the pictures, but brace yourselves... these are not for the weak hearted clean freaks out there(JOE), I use my Jeep for the purpose of which it was built! Now as far as the Mopar Mecca goes... I managed to grab a few shots of a couple vehicles in the shop, but 99.9% of all the cool stuff was strictly forbidden from being photographed, including the Dyno which just happened to be a Challenger R/T sporting a Kenne Belle and a 426 pushing 858 ftlbs of Torque! Ridiculous!

Re: Field Day!!

I meant to throw Short Ram in there, I know its not a "true" CAI, but it sure as hell is an improvement from the stock box
