this is a parts list for building a budget "torque tube" on
a 2003+ dodge ram
afe makes a torque tube that replaces the factory rubber hoses that go
from the airbox to the turbo inlet. the factory hoses have huge baffles
on them, most likely for federal noise reduction. removing them and replacing
with nice mandrel bent will net a little bit of power (and a nice sound!).
afe torque tube runs about $95. you can built one literally just as good
for a little more than half that. all parts from www.airflowonline.com.
you can replace the t-bolt clamps with cheap 99 cent clamps, but they
can brake. i would at least put a nice one on the turbo.
my torque tube with crappy clamps.
