The new 21-8222DC and 21-8222DP Brute Force air intake systems include a massive powder-coated black heat shield that houses an AEM 4x9-inch DRYFLOW Air Filter. Channeling the airflow from the large DRYFLOW air filter is a high-quality mandrel-bent aluminum inlet tube that is coupled to a durable adapter elbow (included). The piping design is routed to accommodate the Ram's unique upward-facing throttle body and to ensure a cool air source is utilized to deliver airflow to the engine.

The 21-8222DC and 21-8222DP utilize a large oil-free DRYFLOW performance air filter (21-2259DK). The 21-2259DK has a flange inside diameter of 4-inches (101mm), and a height of 9-inches (228mm), allowing the 21-8222DC and 21-8222DP intake systems to deliver a vast amount of airflow to the 5.7-liter V8 engine of the Dodge Ram. The DRYFLOW air filter media creates a lifetime filter that is extremely durable, easily cleaned and delivers excellent filtration properties. This AEM Brute Force air intake can be installed in an hour and a half or less using basic tools.
