The #164596 is only an ok CAI.
This CAI is only an ok intake. The screw holes in the aluminum lid didn't allign correctly to the mounting in the intake box. The two mounting bolts for the intake box were too short and wouldn't fasten the intake box to my truck.I had to go buy two longer ones so that I could properly fasten it in. Volant did however help with acquiring a new lid for the box. Unsure if I would purchase another and recommend this CAI to anyone else.
AS soon as I installed this on my 2017 Dodge Ram #500 you could hear an instant change in tone and horsepower. The turbo spool was more profound and the vehicle seemed to be more responsive. My only issue was the plastic tubing which seemed to be cheap compared to the other K & N filters that I've put in my other vehicles. Customer service is the best on this site, they were there every step of the way and ensured that I had the correct product for my application. Super easy install.
