A re-tread from Texas

Hi All,

Had a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 extended cab until Jan 1 2007, wife talked me into trading her in for a 2006 Dodge Durango. Nice little "truck", but just not for me.

Sooooooooo last Tuesday, I went out and traded in the mini dodge for a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 extended cab w/ H-E-M-I !!!! and now as you all know it is time to MOD!!

First things first! Cold air intake and a good spacer. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated before I make final decision.

I e-mailed Duane Garrett a few minutes ago to ask if what I am thinking about ordering will would work together. Want to make sure it will all fit before I drop more cash, which will place me firmly in the dog house OR on the couch for a week or more

I have also read mention that many of you have ordered and installed the 3rd strike intakes, but I am at a total loss as to which one most of you have purchased. The straight pipe single filter one OR the "Y" shaped dual filter one???

Anyhow, I am glad that I have found you all. Looks like a lot of great information and late nights reading are in my near future.

I think you could do without spacer as there isn't any power gain with it unless you really want one. The single filter CAI is what I would go with.

If you really want a spacer I'll sell ya mine. It didn't do anything for me.
