More air from k&n ?

I put a k&n cai and retired that restricted air box on my 2013 ram sport reg. cab. Big difference , but I know there's gotta be a way to get more air to that big filter. The only air getting to it is coming through that area right above the passenger side headlight. Maybe a half inch x 5. Any suggestions on getting more air?? What is that little flap inside the fender well? Is it to get to the headlight better? Maybe I could get more air by taking that off. It just pops in with plastic pins.I can't afford a viper hood!!

big difference in noise, i bet not much performance difference.
not really much you can do to direct more air to it, i wouldn't remove the headlight flap in a quest for air, you'll get water up in there as well.

No, not a big difference by itself but the CAI combined with the flow master exhaust, and 93 diablo tune (dcx-i1000), packs a big punch. I dropped the back 2 inches, put smaller tires n rims on and it's a heck of a lot quicker now. For about $1,000 bucks for everything I've added, it'll hold it's own against most trucks I've come across. A ford Harley Davidson addition truck pulled up beside me one day and I showed him what my tailgate looks like,"from a distance "!!! He wasn't happy afterwards. I'm happy with it, that's all that matters.

That is a very true statement. And is all that matters.

With my Volant cai, they offer an additional tube that goes from the bottom of the cai box to behind the passenger side fog light. You take out the fog light and have "ram air." I didn't like the idea of taking out the light, so I didn't purchase it. Perhaps K & N has something similar??

This is for sure the reason for the difference in power you feel. I normally run 30 ratio tires, but for the yearly inspection over here I have to run the stock 55 ratio tires. I thought something was wrong with the engine, the difference in power was that much! On the 55 tires my truck felt a lot more sluggish than on the 30 ratio tires!

Heigth difference:
