AFE BladeRunner Air Intake Manifold 46-10011
Mfg. Number: 46-10011
XDP Part Number: AFE46-10011
|The BladeRunner intake manifold represents the next generation in intake manifold design. The BladeRunner intake manifold uses a unique MDV (Multiple Directional Vane) technology to guide the air through the manifold maximizing air flow. Constructed out of cast A356-T6 aluminum and uses a proprietary internal bolt design to help increase the flow and provide a solid seal void of leaks or deformaties. the BladeRunner comes with up to 5 ports for nitrous injections, gauges and other accessories used by hardcore enthusiasts. In recent testing the BladeRunner intake manifold outflowed the factory intake by 32.9% and produced 17hp and 50lbs. x ft torque at 1975rpm. This intake is specifically designed to provide increased intake volume and velocity.
- Improves torque up to 50 lbs x ft
- Increases horsepower up to 17 HP
- Better turbo spool-up
- Better throttle response
- Lowers Exhaust Gas Temperatures
- Perfect complement with your turbo upgrade
- Patent Pending Multiple Directional Vane (MDV) Technology
- Superior internal cross section with turning vanes increases intake air flow vs. stock intake manifold
- Back side is pre-tapped for easy and clean gauge installation and other auxiliary inputs
- Stainless Steel Hardware
- Will not void warranty
- C.A.R.B EO# D-550-10
Pre-tapped for easy and clean gauge installation and other auxiliary inputs
Stock Dodge Cummins intake manifolds have sharp bends and corners. Air flows around these corners and zones of dead air created. These dead air zones choke down air and restrict airflow to your engine.
The MDV™ Advantage
Our MDV™ technology uses smooth bends and directional vanes to form multiple air paths through the manifold. These new paths are smoother and shorter, producing much smaller dead air zones for increased overall airflow to the engine.

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L Cummins, just installed the intake manifold. Pretty cut and dry install the worksheet they give you has bad pictures, but start to end time was 30 minutes. Took it out for a test drive after and the turbo was a lot louder, more of a whistle sound. The turbo spooled faster and throttle response was increased noticeably. Also did a rough fuel economy test before the intake manifold i averaged 17/ 23 now after the intake 18/ 25.Product looks great and had no machining errors like other have said. If you want better fuel economy and better throttle response, and class up the engine compartment this is the intake for you.
Good but not Great

This installed in about an hour and appears to operate as expected but the fit and finish is not good. The paint on the unit is not even and the casting has a lot of roughness inside and out. I've read about their lack of quality control in manufacturing but it has been more on their exhaust manifold for the Cummins. This intake is the same. Their perch for the oil dipstick is the wrong angle too. You must bend the tab on the dipstick to make the bolt start threading. The performance does appear to be there but if you want a good look to the engine compartment, buy another brand.

This is simply AMAZING. Takes an hour to install and is noticable bigger and better than stock. I was skeptical about losing low end power becasue my engine isn't modified too much, but there was a gain in my low end instead. The pre tapped holes are great too. The gauge install only took 10 minutes because of them. This product will be going on every cummins I own. Thanks XDP.

Didn't take long to install at all. It really lets your engine breathe easier and is a little more responsive at any rpm. The tone of my engine is definately deeper when the turbo starts to spool up. Great product would definately buy again.

Takes about an hour to install and man was it worth it you can hear the turbo working to keep up with air demand. I recieved better fuel ecomomy in the deal also.@1.5mpg Also has pre-drilled ports for guage or other accesores.
