Depending on the power level you are at, you likely won't see any gains at all from a Cai. A bhaf is more than plenty for the majority of us

I would recommend the S&B. I've installed and used them for all generations of Dodge, the fit and finish is good. The service is excellent!!!!! Can't go wrong.

PS Make sure to buy the pre-filter with it and a spare air filter so you don't have your truck sitting there when the filter is drying while cleaning it.

S&B always seems to have a nice product.

I have the old school aFe Mega Cannon with an outer pre-filter cover for years, and its still doing fine. When that filter gets old and grungy then I'm sure I'm going to pop on a BHAF. The idea of "cold air intake" isnt always what people think, and these year trucks dont need a true CAI, nor do they do as well with one during around town driving with a CAI. The only time a CAI seems to offer any benefit is when towing in the summer heat as it can reduce the EGT's around 100*.

The key is MORE, better filtrated air...not cold air.

Cold intake air can hurt your fuel mileage...roughly 140 degrees F is ideal IAT.

or you can just use a fooler to trick the IAT into thinking it is getting 140F air

your trucks turbo is going to heat the air up anyway just by compressing it.

Just avoid oiled filters.

Anything below *80 IAT causes a pretty dramatic timing spike. At this point I don't think anyone should be running a cai that causes iats to be less than 100*f

I recommend getting better hose clamps with the big spring like the BD intake items such as the positive air shutoffs.

Cold air is not helpful. Trust me when I get in to the minus numbers for outside temperatures and the IAT falls to mere +20*F it really kills the MPGs and makes the engine rattle excessively. Like @me78569 said any temp below 80*F at the IAT is too cold. Optimal is 100-140*F. Personally I say BHAF and not worry about brand names filter nor washable junk.

I've got a 2001 Dodge in my yard right now with washable (name brand filter) and the filter is passing dirt, dust, and the filter oil and ruined the turbo. Turbo is so bad you can rattle the shaft to hear the bearing jingle inside. Not to mention it doesn't even spin when the engine is running and produces ZERO boost.

I have had zero issues with my oiled filters. But yes over oiling can cause issues. I have zero dirt or dust pass through mine. I have in the past had issues with the stock filter housing leaking. Very cheaply built. I trust hose clamps and an oiled filter for the dirt roads I have to drive on. But when I oil mine I let it sit in multiple positions before installing and wipe off any excess oil with a cloth incase I over oiled a spot. I have spares for each truck.
