The Volant has lower port built into their sealed box already just begging for this mod
and I hear production of an optional lower air scoop will be out in November for the 4G Ram's.

They do it for several other makes/models already http://www.volant.com/scoops.asp
this is what the Chevy Silverado HD unit looks like:

Right after I shot this pic I realized just how nasty the dirt and bugs collecting in the fins was ,
I dont normally see my filter from this angle so I thought it still looked okay from the front...Ooops!

Guess I'm due for my first cleaning/re-charge after almost a year







Soaked it with degreaser and let it sit for 10 minutes


Then rinsed from the inside out with a light low pressure shower nozzle on the garden hose and let it dry for 4 hours next to a fan.
Then a light spray oil and let it wick in for 20 minutes...check for white spots and give it another light dusting of oil and let it dry overnight before re-installing the morning.
Bet I'll be even Faster getting to work tomorrow now!

Clean and Dry waiting for some fresh Red K&N Oil.
I use the K&N recharge kit because it was only $12 locally vs $20+ for the Airaid recharge kit.


This shot gives a good idea of the filter size compared to a coke can...with some fresh Red Oil!

View from below, lower left is the input side, lower right is the fog light housing, up the fender is the blue bungee cord holding the top of the tube in place.
(There's a second bungee holding the lower front of the tube near the bumper)



Testing has been limited to street only so far and I'm melting my poor Terra Grapplers! I can tell by my butt dyno it's working well.
Track testing to follow, and I still have to get a base line Dyno run (slated for August 12th) before my Edge Torque Converter and JBA Headers get installed then my custom CMR Dyno Tuning session.
Great idea with the tubes bud, but will all the ribs you are loosing a lot of air flow. If I was you, I would use them as a template and take them to your local fabricator and have him make you a set of Alum tubes with the bend you need. You will notice the difference.

a few more pic's from this morning after re-installing


Oiled, installed and ready to roll again...




Now that everything is flowing free clean clear and cold,
my early morning commute to the office freaked me out!
Super Fast when the cool morning air was only 12ºC (~50ºF)

...a Neighbor a few homes down from me builds custom turbo setups in his garage, mostly for 350z/370z cars...but he want's to do a Turbo setup on my Ram next...
We met at the track last year when he recognized my truck, when he told me where he lived I recognized his name and it turns out I designed his home...small world

Damn fine TIG Welder/Fabricator,

Since you're a Turbo guy, you should like this ...

I just ordered my Airaid (http://www.airaid.com/ProductDetail....ductID=301-237) from amazon for $371.90 with free shipping to my home here in AK. i'm probably going to use your idea, BM, to use pipe insulation to make a better seal on the hood. I'm going to need to look at the setup in person, once installed and might pick up the diy kit too, so I can plumb colder air into the box. I'll post pics of what I end up doing. I'll proably have to forge up some special brackets to hold everthing still though.

cheers
