nice price. wonder how this thing fares?
food for thought:
i feel like i've read in multiple locations that any aftermarket intake does the job of an aftermarket intake...provides good enough air filtration while opening up flow for the engine (stock so stuffed up!). i feel like with apr, we're paying for how awesome it looks and the fact that we pull from the same source (ram-air effect, but we can't call it that since dodge currently owns the "ram-air" name since the early 90's) which is why i paid the extra for APR...i guess sounds will be different. idgaf either way, an intake is an intake, APR's looks and sounds good though.
overall, i bet this thing does a perfect job of what we need it to do at a very very very wallet-friendly price...and until i hear otherwise, i won't say anything bad.
Honestly though I've never seen any testing on engine bay temps at that location with or without a heat shield so were all just theorizing at this point.
I personally wouldn't buy one.
- No heat shield
- Doesn't look secure (MAF surges)
- Filter is angled/ placed wrong and will not efficiently utilize the air inlet on the grill.
