    Argument with a friend....cold air intakes....

    I was talking with a friend of mine today and he won't budge on this topic. He is set on getting an AFE cold air intake for his durango which will run him 260,and i was saying that the pacesetter one they offer for his car would do just as good of a job at 193. Should he spend the extra $ and get the higher name brand one or will it honestly matter?

    lol thats pretty much what i said. i told him that if they both use a 3" tube how is one better than the other? Only way is if 1 puts the filter in a better location for air, that and the more expensive one comes with a box..............oooooohhhh pretty

    its not worth the money for a durango... now if it was something he was wanting to soup up then its a dif. story... tell him to get the cheaper one.

    Re: Argument with a friend....cold air intakes....

    it only became an argument b/c i tried telling him he's throwing $ down the drain and not a small amount but 100 bucks. i linked him to this thread and he is seeming like he'll go with the cheaper one.

    Re: Argument with a friend....cold air intakes....

    More expensive ones in some case show a couple more HP gains but nothing that makes too much of a difference. Honestly, according to the manufacturers of my catback, cold air intake, and grounding kit I should have gained almost 30 HP and 25 lb/ft of torque at the wheels, but if I had to guess, I'd say I gained about 10 HP.

    Let him decide on his own, but he shouldn't waste money on the more expensive one IMO

    Re: Argument with a friend....cold air intakes....

    plus if he save's $ and enjoys it i'll get me some beer lol. with the more expensive one's i've read they can be more limited as they have that stupid box that can limit air flow.

    I got the ebay one for 25 or 30 for mine. Its no different than the others. I didnt really expect a big increase either. It was more cosmetic than anything. I might get a better filter though.
