Hey,
just want to know if these cheap ebay cold air intakes are good or bad.

I have read this threat ( http://www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115876&highlight=intake ) but just wanted to know a little bit more about these cheap intakes, because i dont think that there is a different in the pipes, maybe in the air filter.

Please tell me what you think.
I like to get a deeper sound so do these work or not.

THX

Those intakes are just made from parts you can buy yourself. They may be OK but you don't know what the quality of the silicone elbow is (heat rating etc.) or the filter. You can get high quality parts and make your own. (I wouldn't pay $360.00 for any standard CAI unless it was gold plated!)

Some of us have been building our own using the high flowing SRT airbox, but you could add a K&N (or other) cone filter just as easily. They sound really good (deep throaty growl), feel good, and look good. Less that $100 to build from high quality parts.

Here a link to check out what we have been doing...

i also believe the bt cai also produced the 2nd max hp numbers right behind the airhammer. in cost perspective the bt i think is 200 and the air hammer close to 500 and only a 1 or 2 hp difference . if you have money to peel off and every little bit is wanted the air hammer. bang for the buck you cant beat the bt.

OK I have an SRT8.
I have no problem spending 350 for the Airaid.
But if you say just adding a k&n filter would be enough then it would be fine for me.
Maybe you can tell me where to order.

I'll probably get blasted for this but...

Player, I'd get a Cold Air Intake that brings in cold air(BWoody, GSM, RDP or the AEFIS II). Not hot air from inside the engine compartment.
