The AIRAID 302-117 cold air dam performance intake is designed to help your Dodge 4.7L Magnum V8 make more power at lower RPMs.
First introduced in the mid-1960's, Chrysler's small-block V8 engines have powered everything from sports cars to commercial trucks. After three decades of service, it was replaced at the turn of the last century by the 4.7L Magnum V8. The new engine featured lots of lightweight materials, and a modern fuel injection system that allowed it to reach emissions targets without sacrificing power. In the 2000-2003 Dodge Durango and 2000-2003 Dodge Dakota, the new Dodge 4.7L V8 made 235-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, which was slightly more horsepower than the 5.2L Magnum V8 that it replaced. For those who want a bit more 'ram tough-ness' from their Magnum V8, the AIRAID 302-117 cold air dam performance intake is designed to unlock horsepower and torque that gets lost in the restrictive OE intake system. Plus, it might actually save you some money in the long run.
AIRAID includes the washable and reusable 722-440 air filter with the 302-117 intake system.
An engine makes power by combining air and fuel inside the cylinders. When a spark plug ignites the mixture, the oxygen gets consumed by the flame, and the resulting energy forces the piston down, turning the crankshaft, and ultimately the wheels. To increase the amount of energy (aka horsepower) that is released during combustion, you simply need to add more cold air to the mixture. Since cold air has more oxygen molecules than warm air, the detonation will be much more forceful, allowing your 4.7L Magnum to generate more horsepower and torque, from roughly the same amount of fuel. The AIRAID 302-117 cold air dam performance intake delivers a higher volume of cold air to the cylinders by replacing the restrictive factory air box and paper air filter, with a free-flowing cold air intake system.
The key to the AIRAID 302-117 cold air dam performance intake is the innovative cold air dam that surrounds the high-flow SynthaMax air filter. It's been powder coated to withstand heat and features a special top gasket that self-seals against the underside of the hood when it's closed. This creates a cold air chamber that directs the flow of oxygen into the synthetic AIRAID air filter. Dual layers of proprietary synthetic material filter out contaminants without impeding airflow, and this performance air filter won't have to be cleaned for 30,000-50,000 miles. Plus, the entire system can be installed in about 90 minutes, using simple hand tools.
For added protection in harsh environments, AIRAID makes the 799-440 filter wrap for the 302-117 intake kit.
With a high volume of cold air flowing into the cylinders, your Durango 4.7L or Dakota 4.7L will be able to make more power at lower RPMs. This will save you money on gas, provided you can keep your right foot in check. You'll also save money on replacement air filters, because the supplied AIRAID SynthaMax air filter is reusable, and even comes with a No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty. AIRAID also makes other Dodge Durango and Dodge Dakota performance parts, which you can check out by using the AIRAID search by vehicle tool.
