This might be a dumb question but does Vararam make an Air Grabber for the 4th gen rams with a filter that you do not need to oil?

They only offer it with the oiled filter. I am not sure if anyone makes a dry filter in that size. I need to call Vararam today anyways, so I will ask about this.

OK, they said they dont know of any aftermarket dry filters, but you can always run the disposable paper filter from the old Hemi. That old filter is what they designed this intake around.

Me personally, I would stick to the oiled one though. It only takes 2 minutes to remove this filter, so cleaning it isnt much hassle.

Thanks for checking. I'm debating on looking into a VR Air Grabber sometime in the near future.

My question the chrome breather, does that come with the kit or is it necessary veto add? That would seem that the could effect the emmision? Joe
