Lightbulb CAI Dyno Results?

I've been debating, like many on here, whether or not to buy a Cold Air Intake. Is it worth it? Are there any HP or TQ gains from the factory set up? So I would like to know if any one has dyno proven results of their CAI from the factory set up. Not manufacturer results but your own results. Please list them and the type of CAI you have.

Negligible on a dyno.. I saw around 6 rwhp difference when I installed an AFE CAI, however I also did a muffler swap as well. Unless you do back to back before and after dyno runs it is difficult to gauge something like a CAI swap as conditions and dyno's can vary. Plus, the more air you can get flowing into the intake the better so when you're sitting still on a dyno, even with a large fan blowing into the grill, it is not duplicating the same air velocity you would see if you are at WOT on the road.

^^ what he said. I did a baseline dyno on my 2010 rt and got the exact same pull after putting on an AFE stage 2 while the truck was still sitting on the dyno.
