The windshield wipers on our 2005 F350 have never worked well. Even with new blades (we've tried several kinds over the years) there would be places where the wiper wouldn't stay in contact with the glass, especially at highway speeds. The force of the blade against the window of these wipers is weaker than on our other vehicles. A few weeks ago I got a pair of SUREWIPE wiper springs and now the wipers work like they should. They're easy to install and are available at Canadian Tire for CDN$10.99 or on Amazon for US$18.50 including shipping. Easy to install and a cheap fix to an annoying problem!

Hope you don't put too much dust into your engine with the K & N filter......

After 20 years' service, the radiator on my '96 F250 diesel finally started leaking. So, this week I installed a new all-aluminum Mishimoto radiator. While doing that, I decided to upgrade the small factory auto tranny cooler with a much larger Tru Cool unit and also put on new associated tranny hoses to the radiator and new cooler. And while I was on a roll, I also put an in-line B&M tranny screw-on-filter kit to improve tranny filtering and to protect the new radiator and cooler should the 20-year-old tranny decide to start sheading parts on my next trip.

Here we go - "If it lets in so much air it must let in more dirt"

I have a AFE dry filter anyways that is going on it.

I have heard many mechanics talk about the aftermarket filters often get over oiled and coat intake sensors with dirty oily residue - throwing codes, etc....
While this may not pertain to your new truck, Ram has voided engine warranty on the Cummins engine due to dust out conditions destroying the engine. I have also been told by a dealership technician that Dodge has put a lot of R & D into their stock filtering system and it works well in terms of air movement and dust.

I am a huge believer in the K&N oiled intakes. I have used their fuel injection performance kits (FIPK) on our BMW's for years. One has been on our 2001 330Ci for well over 10 years. I have cleaned/oiled it twice and it has never fouled the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. I think you would have to put a huge amount of oil on it or oil it from the wrong side for this to happen. I would think the oiled filter would catch more dust and dirt than a dry filter. That being said, I have used a dry AFE filter like Bold is describing for several years on our 240sx and it has worked great as well, but I still prefer the K&N filters.

Until I get enough money to do a supercharger, true dual exhaust, and remap the computer I will run the stock air filter.

Thanks for the concern. I don't have a diesel. Also, no accounting for people over oiling things. That doesn't make it the products fault. If you suspect you are dumb and cannot follow instructions, you should use a paper filter and not modify your vehicle.

---

Got the muffler installed today. Removed the resonator too. Really kind of surprised at how quite it is. I guess I am just used to a dual exhaust setup.

And now for photos. I told the guy I wanted it subdued and to leave me with plenty of ground clearance so I don't have to worry about bashing my tail pipe.



This is what he came up with, and I'm really happy about this.



You can hear it, but you can't see it.









Just barely comes a little lower than the stock spare tire.

BoldAdventure,

I like your new exhaust. They definitely tucked it up out of the way.

Danielle and I saw a Power Wagon at the auto show recently. I like the stance of the vehicle and it certainly has a machismo factor. The 4X4 and 6.2L should make a great combination.

Surprisingly no drone. It's quite inside unless you hit above 3000rpm.

So, when you get on it, you hear it. Compared to our old truck which had duals and a Magnaflow it's quieter.

For the first couple of days, I was disappointed it wasn't louder. However after a break-in period, it's noticeably more audible than it was at first. So I made the video yesterday.

I am used to dual exhaust. Our old 1500 had dual exhaust with the same size Magnaflow and the resonators removed. But it was louder and audible at all RPM's.

I suspect it might be because the 1500 had 2.5-inch exhaust that piped into the Magnaflow then out to dual 3-inch pipes and tips.

The 2500 6.4l Hemi comes standard with a 3.5-inch exhaust with single muffler and giant resonator.

To maintain back pressure, I pipe down with a reducer into a 3-inch inlet and outlet on my Magnaflow then back out a single 3.5-inch tip. It ends up being mellow and more of a bass note compared to the old exhaust which had more of that raspy duals sound.

I recorded an interior clip, but haven't posted it yet. Think I will tow with the new setup and record a second clip, combine those and share for other Ram owners on Youtube.
