Default CAI dyno??

Has anyone actually installed the mopar CAI and done a dyno test to validate the money spent??? I put another brand of CAI on a full size ram a couple years ago and while it sounded good and the seat of the pant dyno felt a bit better I never was sure.

There are several links here that show dyno results done by several CAI OEM's. They all were impressive but the Mopar one is top dog. Do a search.

I have looked and found some data but no real side by side numbers of HP with only adding a CAI on a Challenger. I suspect its only 10-15 at best but would just be interested.

No I think I've read that the Charger's were getting around 25hp with the CAI. So I'd think it would be at least 20...

By all dyno charts, and I did not see one on the Mopar CAI that read the same as the others.

One site shows 10-15hp gained through the 5.7, one shows 18-21hp gained with the 6.1.

Only K&N shows dyno charts on the Challenger @ 32hp gained. It's ugly, and cheap looking, but at 100.00 less for 10+ HP more... I got the K&N

The Mopar CAI exceeded the K&N numbers. I think the K&N is suspect because it was done by K&N. The Mopar CAI test was done by an independent shop.

Did any of you install the supplied weatherstripping? The top weatherstripping does not seal to the hood. The smaller weatherstripping does not seal the intake tube to the heat shield. What are you going to do?

Also, becuase the Challengers did not have the same factory intake tube as the Chargers, there is an unused stud where a bracket bolted for the air box and there is not a place for the harness from the throttle body to clip. Anyone going to modify this? Needs to be cleaned up a little.
