Need Honest Advice
Hello All,
I'm looking to add a CAI to my Hemi. I know that they are more for looks and sound and I'm ok with that. With that said I would like your invaluable input on my choices as followed:
1. Arrington CAI.. would the carbon fiber warp due to the heat
2. Volant CAI.. Has the closed look and looks good in place
3. AfE stage 2.. Havent really looked at this one that much.

Looking for the most bang for the buck but s far the volant has my attention as I wont have to worry about anything getting to the filter ie water.
Thanks in advance for your input. :thumbsup:

I personally would get th Arrington. The carbon is thick enough so warping will not be an issue. It also has the biggest opening where the filter connects IIRC

I like my afe, and there is no more chance of water ingestion with this set-up than stock. It installs to the bottom of the stock box. Plus the price is right. Got mine for $235 shipped.

Im with everyone on the AFE...I have had several different intakes on different cars in my day. The quality is really nice with it. There were no rough parts, everything went through quality control. The sound is amazing and the install is like 20 minutes. Plus the price is right!!

I have a K&N on mine and love it. Only downside is it's not enclosed like some of the others.

Get either a Volant or an Airaid Jr Intake. I have the Airaid Jr Intake and I like it.

At least you can put one on. I would love to put 1 on my CRD to hear the turbo spool up and get a little gain as well.
