Hey gang,

AFE EcoDiesel Cold Air Intakes Now Shipping!

I have a Pro Guard 7 for ours that will be in tomorrow and will post pics and thoughts.

Here is the link Rollin Smoke Diesel. AFE

Thanks!

Is there any documentation for the claimed hp and torque increase? I find it hard to believe the claimed numbers are real on an engine with a turbo. Seems to me the Ram and VM Motori engineers will have designed an intake and turbo that complements each other and whatever pressure drop exists on the standard model is offset by added boost. Seems to me a lower restriction wouldn't result in additional boost but just cause the engine control to cut back on the boost to achieve the exact same manifold pressure.

Or, I could be wrong.................. Always willing to listen to facts and sound, well thought out opinions too.

Only claims and documentation I have are from the manufacturer as far as hp gains. I am closely watching any fuel mileage gains to compare to what i was averaging before. As with any diesel engine, the more air the better.

James, now that you have the AFE installed for a few weeks have you noticed more power and better fuel mileage? Please give an update.

Hey friend, honestly I can not feel a power difference, if there is you cant notice it by the seat of your pants. Mileage is about the same, but the sound! Love the sound :cool:

I know you did a video from the driver seat taking off, but it is hard to hear the difference and I am sure the video doesn't do it any justice. Can you give us an idea from outside of the truck?

Yes sir, the video does not let you hear the whistle. I'll see if I can post another with the phone in the cab.

Did you ever get around to making another video? I am about to give up on waiting for S&B. I'm 21k miles in and I'm ready for a sound upgrade.

Also will there be a tuner/programmer that'll allow us to adjust the MAF?

Just got mine on Friday! Thanks James! I might be buying the cover, the cruising down the hwy at (60mph)/ 2000rpm hiss might get annoying on trips. Fun cruising around though
