Airaid worth it? Already have JBA/Cajun and UpRev

Hey guys, I searched and searched!

I have recently installed the Cajun/JBA Stage 2 setup and base mapped with UpRev. Too damn noisy. Going in this week to get a UQ resonator installed.

I DO like the power, BUT, I am concerned that an Airaid MXP will add too much noise. I saw that the Airaid MXP adds 18whp, 24wtq per the manufacturer on a stock vehicle...........

BUT....does the Airaid MXP STILL add +18 even with the Cajun Stage 2 and UpRev, or is it less? More? I can handle the noise if it's like +25whp, assuming the UpRev can leverage the MXP. But, if it's like 15whp or less, I'd probably pass on the extra noise.

Many experienced tuners warn people that whilst ONE product adds xxWHP, that does not mean that 3 products are xxWHP+xxWHP+xxWHP.

So, has anyone dyno'ed a Cajun Stage 2 UpRev truck WITH and WITHOUT the MXP??

I re-tuned with Airaid from an AFE and picked up 8HP and 7TQ.

Worth it, Yes... even the tuner was impressed with the gains between CAI's.

Re: Airaid worth it? Already have JBA/Cajun and UpRev

I saw your original post about this, and it is why I am strongly considering it. Making 8whp over a similar intake is pretty good info....but I am still curious, if we compared OEM airbox to MXP on a tuned Cajun Stage 2 truck...

BTW, the noise is not there unless your foot is in it. I notice it when I am towing heavy but otherwise no big deal.

Put some sound deadening material on the intake tube where it hits the fender. You already have exhaust, so you won't hear the CAI.

Re: Airaid worth it? Already have JBA/Cajun and UpRev

I searched and searched and searched and I found exactly what I was looking for, an Armada owner actually dyno'ed an Armada with JBA LT's and catted b-pipes with stock intake. Then he open the upper lid of the intake the dyno showed +14WHP and +17WTQ. Seems an Airaid does almost it's advertised numbers on an already modified truck. Not bad.

I guess I can road test my truck with the air box propped open and see if I don't mind the sound.....

Re: Airaid worth it? Already have JBA/Cajun and UpRev

No joke, the only time I can hear the intake is if I don't have the radio on, and I don't WOT for a hard acceleration. If it sits around 3k-3.5k RPM's I can hear it over the exhaust. If you're above or below that exhaust overpowers the intake noise. Normal driving you won't hear it at all.

Re: Airaid worth it? Already have JBA/Cajun and UpRev

I ordered the MXP.

I watched a few YT vids of trucks with similar mods, and like you guys said, it's pretty difficult to hear the MXP over everything else.

I was hesitant to get it because my co-worker has a 4.7l Ram with a K&N cone filter setup, and it sounds horrible! I dunno if it is just the 4.7l V8 that is crappy, the intake, or what, it is boomy and resonates. Didn't hear any of that in the YT vids.

Eh, if I don't like it I could prob sell it pretty fast on here!
