Well it looks like I have gone the wrong way with putting on a CAI. I wanted better fuel milage and thought that like the lder trucks just put a good CAI on and get say 100 Km's more out of your tank, well it doesn't seem to work that way on the HEMI. I lost 100 Km's a tank because of it, gained all kinds of getty up but less fuel. An Engineer tells me that they are trying to make up a restrictor plate for these trucks to save fuel. Does this make any sence to anyone???? Jeff

they wont make business with most of us, our goal is to eliminate all potential restriction in the truck not add to them , i had "fuel efficient" vehicles before and i know this one will never be like them but the extra 20 or 30 bucks i spend per week are worth every penny for the plesure i have driving it

If you want efficiency get a Honda, if you wanna go fast get a Hemi.

Iceracer61, Have you put on a cat back system yet? When I first installed my long tube AFE, I wouldn't say I lost MPG but I didn't gain any either. Once I put the cat back on, I gained 1.5ish MPG. You have to get it breathing and expelling in the right combo to get the motor to operate more efficiently.
