Yeah I was thinking about that too. I will go and find some pics of Spectre CAIs on the 2.4 and add them to the original post a little later today.
Here is my spectre, I took this pic for the strut brace install so I can take a better one tomorrow if you like.

Thanks for the pic jordan! I agree, great design. Where does the flex tube route to?

I finally updated the original post with the Spectre option. I added jordan's pic and another one I found to show a couple different designs as well as a bit on my own personal experience/opinion on the Spectre since that's what I use and I've almost been through as many intake interations as dave lol.

I will go ahead and sticky this thread, even though we got a bit off topic. I may go ahead and move the all edit questions to a seperate thread later on to clean this one up.

I also missed bluegasm's post about the K&N on the 2011 so I may have mispoke. I don't remember seeing that thread. Do you have a link? I'd like to confirm fitment on 2011's for sure and if I'm wrong I'll edit my post so as not to mis-inform anyone.

I installed a D-I-Y kit over the weekend. No sensor issues at all. Performs great. Response and acceleration improved as expected! Here's my pics for my $80 setup (Spectre filter, chrome {only choice other than accordian tubing=would defeat purpose}, 4"-tbolt clamp, bracket and adapter kits):

Sites

Davect01, I looked at the sites you suggested and the first two seemed identical, the third was a little helpful. I liked the link to your site that was pretty cool. I think what I may have to do is use the universal Weapon hose then get a filter. I may have to build a box like yours for heat and such. When done I will make sure I post pics. Thanks arain.

engine light came on

.

For additional performance and power K&N has developed a high flow air intake system (69-2542TS) with a powder coated silver finish for the 2008 and 2009 Dodge Avenger with 2.4 liter engine. K&N dynamometer testing shows a 9.37 horsepower increase at 5368 rpm. This is a great power gain for the naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine. The OEM intake created a large amount of restriction that the K&N design reduced for added power.

Next we have the Weapon R!!! This kit comes as a short ram intake or with cold air extension.

http://www.weapon-r.com/products/files/manuals/307-182-101.PDF and here is a link to some pictures of it on the vehicle
Key Features:

  • Feeds 3 times more air to the engine
  • Fully equipped with all hoses and clamps for installation
  • Mandrel Bent 6061 T6 Aluminum Intake Tubing
  • 1 Million Mile Limited Warranty
  • Smooth polished design
  • Polyeurethane Protective Foam
The Secret Weapon Intakes were created by Weapon-R to multiply air intake volume to the engine. The key element is a system of two different air velocity profiles, which are moving at different speeds. Such an approach allows to increase the volume and speed of the air, which is fed to the engine, giving it 3 times more air than standard air intakes. Secret Weapon Intake Systems increase horsepower by combining Weapon-R's patented Dual Air Flow Technology and denser cold air with the cold air induction. Each system is Dyno Tuned for maximum performance and optimal air to fuel ratios. The smooth polished design and Mandrel Bent T6 Aluminum tubing designed by Weapon-R provides the intake with an attractive look that fits the application right. Weapon-R Intakes are equipped with all hoses and clamps required for mounting that lets you get started on your speed quest immediately.

And now the Prozen intake which a lot of members on the forumz are running.


These intakes are the cheapest but come with a K&N filter on the end.
Here is a link to the sellers ebay site http://motors.shop.ebay.com/prozenmotorsports/m.html

Finally, the Spectre intake is a 'do it yourself' intake in that it is made up of individual pieces you buy and put together to make an intake to fit your car. The price and construction of it can vary quite a bit since there is no single way to build it.



The Spectre is a good option if you are looking for something unique because you can create an intake to fit any routing and design you want. The downside is because it is made of individual pieces it is less 'secure' than the other intakes that are solid pipe designs and can be prone to coming apart after driving for a while because of road and engine vibration. That's why solid bracing for the Spectre intakes is very important. The pipe comes in chome plated plastic and polished aluminum. The aluminum pipe setup is sturdier than the the plastic, but also more expensive.

I hope this helps some people out in their decision to buy a CAI. Everyone try to post your opinions and suggestions on here!![/QUOTE]

Be sure to share what kit you bought with the forum. A lot of folks on here don't want to break the back on a CAI if this one works well.

Waiting for pics.....:smileup:

It should work fine on the 2010. Installed it myself about a month ago and haven't had a single problem. Engine runs better now, and it takes less effort to get up hills where I live. Just make sure all the connections are tight and secure to avoid any leaks. Also, check on it every once in a while to make sure nothing has vibrated loose.

CAI that I just got great price added a killer sound to the 2.4. Very Happy with the purchase.
