Breathe in… Breathe out… Breathe in… No, you’re not in a yoga class- I’m talking about the way RAM trucks can actively manage the air around them to optimize cooling, low end torque and high end horsepower! The RAM Active Air system makes sure the engine is always breathing in nice cool, clean air. Why is cool air important? Well, race cars use a cool air intake to help with horsepower and torque, but the RAM truck also uses it to help cool it’s massive powerplant. RAM Active Air normally draws air in from under the front passenger wheel well where the air is cool and the intake is sheltered from outside debris. If you’re towing or it may just be hot outside, the RAM can also draw air in from the front of the vehicle for some additional breathing.
RAM’s Active Intake Manifold offers the best of both worlds when it comes to either low end torque or high end horsepower. Ever wonder why a drag racer has those long pipes coming out of the hood? Those long air intake runners help give the car lots of low end torque to get that load moving. How about a sports car? They usually have very short intake runners to help with high end horsepower. The RAM Active Intake Manifold is smart, so it can choose between a set of long or short runners. The RAM will always have the right amount of torque or horsepower, all without gulping for air!
