To really benefit from any CAI, you need to also swap out the factory exhaust. Adding a maganflow Cat back like the 15363 will increase HP by 10%. I installed my parts in stages. I first went with a K&N CAI and a diablo sport tuner. I could hear a "BRRAAAPPP" sound coming from the intake when I would step on the gas. Nice sound for sure but, after installing the Magnaflow, All i hear is lots of air being sucked into the engine.

As for fuel economy, I recorded my Average driving from home to the cottage in summer.

Stock no mods

MDS on 11.1 L/100km
MDS off 11.3 L/kms

Added 35" tires BFgoodrich KO2. I had to manually calculate this with a 6% offset i was getting on the tires. The PCM was not calibrated for the tires

MDS on 12.7 L/100km
MDS off 12.9 l/100kms

Added KN Air charger and diablo sport tuner, calibrated tires to match 35"

MDS on 11.5 l/100kms
MDS off 11.7 l/100kms

Added magnaflow cat back 15363
MDS on 10.2 l/100kms
MDS off 10.3 l/100kms

with the tuner I ended up disabling the MDS all together. it sounds just awful with the new exhaust.

hope this helps

I like that Vararam intake. I've always liked the OTR design for a CAI. It gives you the straightest shot for the intake air. The design of that intake has me intrigued though. It looks like it seals to the inside of the hood. Does the intake come with something that mounts to the hood for the intake to seal against? Do you have pics of that? If it doesn't, and relies on sealing to the hood insulation I'd be concerned that it's going to be pulling in hot air from under the hood because it's not getting a good seal against the insulation.

I have this intake and put it on the day I brought the truck home. I had this intake on my previous 1500 with same motor and on that truck, I saw zero in mpg but will say the throttle response was improved. I have to assume it did the same on the Rebel but again, nothing to compare it to as I put it on day one.

It does seal against the hood, just not sure how tight. It looks impressive under the hood.....

I'd agree on the S&B. Bit more of a complicated install...but turned out great!

On those S & B intakes did you have to do any drilling? Modifications?

Has anybody purchased the true ram air functional hood scoop and paired it with the mopar/k&n/afe cai and noticed any differences?

I have the same one. Keep an eye on the bolts holding down the plexiglass cover. And make sure you use some antiseize on the bolts there. I had two of the bolts back out completely and the one at the rear passenger side was completely seized. they warrantied the box, lid and bolt hardware though.. it's just a real pain in the butt.

The bolts and nut inserts for the cover are two different types of metal.

The intake rocks though.. still pleased with the purchase.
