Doesn't tell the difference between the two as far as the specific increases gained, I do think it is going to get cooler air as the rising heat in the engine bay will certainly become a factor as the RRM intake deals with more heatsoak than the others, opening the hood a bit with a custom cut hood vent would make for a nice setup though. Maybe someone here will buy both and sell the one they do not like to another here on the forums, then we can see a direct head to head maybe a dyno and get a real comparison between the two. Thanks for your observations.Throttle response is improved all across the revband. The car is noticeably quicker. Still quiet for the most part until you really hammer on it then you can hear it growling for more power. Its a really quality piece. IIRC the road race intake is a smaller unit that sits in the engine bay right by the battery and as a result right by the exhaust headers. That's more of a short ram intake where as the Mopar one is a true cold air intake. Ive only had a chance to drive it for a short time but I can tell it made a big difference already.
Put the CAI in. Mopar OEM with bypass valve. That goes a long way to prevent hydrolock. Only went out for a short ride but I can tell you the car feels great. Will follow up with more impressions after I drive it to work tomorrow. Also, note the sticker indicating it is a factory item so all should be good with FIAT.

I recall mention some dealers had and were ordering the RRM intake to install on the cars before being sold so I'd imagine it wouldn't play a major factor, plus any problem would have to be caused by the mod to alter the warranty.I'm tempted. I like the RRM look but also wonder about warranty? Sent from my Autoguide iPhone app
