Ram Trucks separated from the Dodge brand in 2011 to become a stand-alone make. The Ram 1500 half ton pickup truck is rugged yet refined with advancements not found in any of its competitors’ trucks. The Ram 1500 offers a coil spring rear suspension to improve ride quality and handling without sacrificing payload capacity. Air suspension is an available option which offers automatic load leveling, lower suspension at highways speeds, and on-the-fly user adjustability. Also, the 2013 Ram 1500 was the first truck to offer keyless ignition in North America. Currently in its fourth generation of production, the Ram 1500 received minor changes for the 2013 model year. In response, AEM Induction Systems has developed a new Brute Force Air Intake System for the 2013 and 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine.

AEM Brute Force Air Intake System for 2013 and 2014 Ram 1500 is available in charcoal gray, 21-8228DC, or a bright mirror finish, 21-8228DP

At AEM Induction Systems our engineers design our intake systems as a fully integrated component of the vehicle. Improved airflow is only part of the power equation. The 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP air intake systems feature an integrated heat shield to help deflect hot air from under the hood. Air then enters the relatively large and rugged AEM Dryflow air filter. The 21-2259DK Dryflow Air Filter is made with a special filtering media that exhibits a three-dimensional property which allows us to achieve high airflow and low restriction without compromising filtration efficiency or dirt holding capacity. Best of all, Dryflow Air Filter 21-2259DK is easy to wash and reuse with part number 1-1000 and does not require oil.

After clean air passes through the filter, a mandrel bent aluminum intake tube directs air into the engine. To satisfy personal preference AEM offers two durable finishes for the intake tube. 21-8228DC features a charcoal gray powdercoat finish, and 21-8228DP offers a bright, mirror-like finish. Coupling the aluminum intake tube to the throttle body is a molded bellows hose which absorbs vibration and engine flex during high-torque situations.

All of the design features of the 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP air intake systems are tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery in the most used RPM range. On the dyno, 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP produced an estimated additional 10.2 horsepower at 5,100 rpm and an equally noticeable additional 10.5 pound-feet of torque at 5,100 rpm over the factory intake system. The added power offered by an AEM Brute Force Air Intake System helps improve acceleration, drivability, and towing performance.

The 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP AEM Air Intake System is an excellent performance upgrade for your 2013 or 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. This is a complete air intake system including all the necessary hardware and step by step installation instructions. To provide peace of mind, AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.
