cold air intake

Basically a cold air kit is an intake tube that moves your air filter to a position outside of the engine compartment to where it can draw cooler air in the engine than the hot air that radiates off your engine.

I am not familiar with what gains you would see for a 300 (not familiar with the engine personally). My guess would be 5-15 horses - somewhere in that range.

A cold air kit is different from just an open air kit like K&N. Open air kits keep the air filter inside the engine compartment, and ti still pulls hot air into the intake...

Hope this helps...

You don't have to move the filter outside - just make it pull air from in front of the radiator, like the stock intake did.

Volant makes cold air intakes. I hear they are decent.
