Does anyone know of a company that sells the srt10 style hoods for our body style ( mine being a 1996 )? And if so are they really functional, because i have never heard of a filter company selling a kit for the diesel.

youd have to make a custom box for it with a panel filter which would work

Ram air will not work any better on a turbo intercooled vehicle.

Other than the look which may be desired think about what ram air does for a sec. The scoop sits in a high pressure area to pressurize the intake system and get additional flow. The turbo was made part of the intake system to increase pressure and flow. So how is a few psi before a turbo going to make any appreciable gains? It will not give any cooler air nor any more "boost" by the time it reaces the combustion chamber.

Ummm I picked up 1mpg on the highway. Dropped my IAT 50-100 degrees. Dropped my EGT's a little over 100 degrees. So they do make a difference.

1 MPG is negligable IMO and could be down to consistancy in the measurement and driving. As far as the other measurements you have the data and I don't. Could be down to intake modifications and not so much to the "ram air" effect.

I have run many ram airboxes and even homebuilt my own to great success. But I just don't see massive gains on a turbo vehicle unless it is correcting a restrictive intake or horribly hot intake air or it is a highly modded vehicle that needs all the help it can get to keep air cool and flowing.

Just got my truck hammered by Hail. The hood is toast. Insurance will buy me new hood. I was looking at the Functional RAM Air. They will paint and send everything including the filter box, K&N filter and accessories for 1.5K. Has anybody gone this way?
