Atleast it doesn't use metal which heats up the air

To be honest material doesnt matter much...the air isnt in the tube long enough to change its density

It's basically an air filter with hitch ups to connect with the stock system, however I don't know if I trust it, K&N is obviously a big name in the CAI game. They did show a gain in about 13 horsepower on a stock block dyno'd at 4800 rpm. I purchased it and it will be in tomorrow if I don't like it I'll return it. Just wanted to get info on it I can't find reviews because I don't think many people purchase these.

Not so sure if its a ram it doesn't go behind the radiator I don't know if it utilizes hot air. Or pulls from the fender well and the stock grabber.
