Just want to make sure one more time what Air Filter System I want. Its either the K&N II with the Hughs Filter or the Volant System.

Here are my Questions:

K&N II: Was there a gain in HP, MPG, Power,
Anything?

Volant: Was there a gain in HP, MPG, Power, Anything?

Also what is the Hughs part number for the K&N II system? Where can I order from for a good price?

Sorry for beating a dead horse, but want to make sure I spend the money on something that is going to help me. Any pics would help out also. I do go off-roading sometimes and drive thru puddles and mudd, but nothing higher then the middle to tops of my tires so that is an issue because I don't want to suck water into my engine and mess it up.

Anonymous: If your slag a guy for asking for feedback on parts he is about to buy atlest have the nads to attach your name.
1) what the manfc say about there product and what it really does are two different things.
2) I think Bob knows were his air filter is.

Bob: I can't tell you any thing about either product but the mopar cold/air induction (with K&N filter) helped with throttle response and but no real change in MPG.

The mopar kit look suspiciously like the K&N Gen II. In fact, I bet if you replaced the Mopar stickers with K&N stickers, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference....

Here's a picture of my Volant Cool Air Intake System with the Ram Air Scoop*



*you can see the opening to the scoop in the lower left hand corner of the pic right above the bumper.

Woody is right, the Mopar is the same as the K&N System, the only difference is the decal.

Thought I'd throw another possibility into the mix.
Check out http://www.intenseperformance.com

His site is geared towards Dakotas/Durango's, but I've emailed the builder and he says he's sold several to Ram guys. He offers a 100% money back guarentee if it doesn't fit.

Hey Tunis
Howdo you like the Volant system? Any noticable gain? Would you recommend it or not? I like the idea of it being enclosed and it coming with a coldair intake.

Thanks
Bob

Bob,

The Volant makes a difference. The front scoope does not come with it. That is an extra $130 or so on top of the $280 or so that the box itself costs.

I liked the Volant enough that I am thinking about getting their box for my diesel as soon as I get it.

What Scoop? I haven't seen the scoop before. Is that for if you have a ramair intake or is that for the cold air intake setup?

Tunis,

Be carefull how deep of mud/water you go through with that!

Can you remove the ram-intake and seal off that opening once you've added it?

I'd love to run something like that, but have it safely covered during off-road excursions. I really don't need the extra oomph off-road like I do on-road.
