Hi i just had a quick question on the CAI on the jeep do the after market ones make it sound any diffrent or is there no change. I was just wondering because i had a airmax sprial air intake on my 5.7 litre hemi last year and it would almost sound like a turbo winding up do you guys recieve the same results?

The Volant has a distinct tone to it, but it's not like a turbo whine.

The mopar cai has a throatier sound. It also whistles a bit during slow accelerations.

Check out this link. First dyno run was with stock intake but from the back. Second run was with the GSM cold air kit (Mopar sound is similar).

I was on wkjeeps looking at the CAI and the air raid set up came up with the most horse power but it seems that many of you guys do not choose this brand is there any specific reasons? looks? cost? sound?

Never have been a big fan of the sound. It sounds like my 78 grand prix with the air cleaner cover flipped upside down. not the way this 6.1 should sound IMHO.

When I installed the DUB intake, it made a distinct difference in the sound AT WOT ONLY. Definitely louder.

Agree - DUB is a very distinctive low pitch aggressive sound at WOT. Under normal driving, of course the sound is the same as stock.

Installed a mopar c.a.i. and I could tell a difference. It sounds even better than stock:)

I take my down to CAI Engineering in Olympia once a month for polishing.
If it don't whistle, it ain't clean!
