ghost so will just bolting one on give you any hp/tq? i was sure you would need a tune to get anything out of a cai, you could even be hurting the hp/tq without tuning?

dmac Well I'm not necessarily promoting them, even though I have an oiled filter at the moment. Just curious as to what your reasoning was is all.

I saw a dry type filter with an interesting design at the auto parts store the other day and I'm debating on switching over to it just because I think the design of the filter would be effective with my CAI setup. If the concensus is that a dry type filter is better than an oiled filer than it just gives me another reason to buy it.

JonW If you read the specs on K&N's website, you'll see that their filters do not filter as well. No wonder they can advertise more flow. I'll give up some flow for cleaner air. Plus, they're a hassle. And I had an engine builder tell me one time to never use a K&N filter. He spent 10 minutes bashing them. Also, a friend of mine is a top-notch mechanic, and he advises not to use oiled filters. To each his own, but that's too much evidence against them for me.

dmac I made a CAI for my Avenger with similar routing using Spectre stuff, but I used piping to route the filter to the bottom of the car instead of the hose. The more I think about it the more I want to modfity my CAI and go the hose route to keep my filter out of the water and dirt.

Why no oiled filter? Just concerned that it doesn't do as good of a job as a dry filter?

Ha! Ha! I hear ya. Like the GTX has the 440 Super Commando (warmed up a tad), 4sp 83/4 rear w/positraction ans 3.55 gears, Magnum 500 repo wheels (8" front & 10" rear), bucket seats, non-console car, Grant steering wheel, headers, flowmasters, aluminum radiator (w/ a 16" electric cooling fan), zoom clutch and NO power steering, No power brakes or A/C!

I was going to buy stuff from Spectre and fab up my own CAI until I ended up getting a Mopar CAI free with the Mopar Bucks. One thing I like about the Mopar CAI is that it uses a dry filter, no oiling. Amsoil and AEM also make dry filters. I will NEVER put an oiled filter on any car of mine.
Appreciate the clarification on that Jon.Like I said,I'm mainly used to dealing with the older Mopars ('66 Charger, '69 road runners and GTX) and it's almost like learning all over again and then there are some things that are basically the same as back then, but I haven't used them much since BACK THEN!

Cool link there Jon. Thanks for posting. MY next question would be, I wonder how much that setup would end up costing, compared to the ones available?

I also wondered why, since we are talking COLD Air Intake, the intake tube wasn't insulated in some way or would the heat around the tube not be enough to cause the air inside the tube to be warmed up somewhat.?

hope this isn't considered "HiJacking", if it IS, I'll gladly start another thread. I've got some pretty good interest in this myself.
