The air intake includes a cast aluminum tube, black powdercoated heat shield and a Spectre HPR0891 air filter and is designed with the physics of airflow in mind to outperform the factory air intake to improve engine horsepower, torque, and engine noise.
You may not be aware that factory intake systems are notorious for restricting airflow and thus inhibiting the performance of a vehicle’s engine. Replacing the factory system with the Spectre 9005 cold air intake ensures that colder air gets into the engine. Cooler air brings more oxygen and denser air into the combustion chamber of the engine and that results in more power. This is achieved because the air intake blocks the filter from the engine compartment so that hot air generated by the engine and other components does not mix with the cooler air being directed into the engine. Not only is horsepower and torque improved, airflow is also enhanced because the tube of the intake has been specially engineered to the proper size and diameter to produce the smoothest and straightest route for the air to flow in a 2013-14 Ram 2500 or 3500 HD.
In addition, Spectre offers the HPR4820 AccuCharge precision air filter cleaning and oiling system that is specially formulated to cleanse the filter so that it can be used over and over again for the life of your vehicle. If you drive 150,000 miles and change your regular air filter every 15,000 miles, then you are purchasing and discarding 10 filters. With the Spectre HPR0891 washable and reusable air filter and Spectre’s HPR4820 cleaning and oiling system, there will be no need for you to purchase another air filter ever again.
The engine used to power the 2013-14 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks is the latest version of the Cummins B Series family of engines. Designated the B6.7, the 6.7-liter L6 diesel engine produces 350-horsepower and 650-lbs.-ft. of torque. This particular engine succeeded the previous B5.9, a 5.9-liter (360-cubic inch) Interact System B straight-six engine.
The newer engine offers a larger displacement than the previous engine, features an increase of the cylinder bore and piston stroke to 4.21-inches and 4.88-inch stroke that results in a displacement of 408-cubic inches.
