CAI's used on a speed density FI system are most likely to see minimal, if any, results. (Other than the noise and underhood appearance)
There's alot of information on the Charger and Challenger forums on CAIs and the Hemi, from personal expierence maybe a little better throtle response and I love to hear it scream. LOL
With my 05 Dakota 4.7 running a K&N kit it felt like I lost a lttle on the low end when taking off normally from a light but on the highway I seemed to have a little more for passing. I think I picked up a couple of hp on the high end by sacrificing a couple on the low.
The difference in MAF and MAP limits what we get out of a CAI.
JMHO, I've read plenty of debates on if it's worth it or one brand is supeiror to another. They look good and sound good but I'm skeptical over the claimed performance gains.
