The only real benefit is sound - which is something to be considered with these great motors - and some throttle response. I think the Mopar looks the best, but you may as well just get the cheapest one and enjoy the same benefits as everybody else does that has them.
Mike I just installed a Mopar CAI this afternoon in my black '06 300C H.E. It was a piece of cake and I love it!!!:banana: I do not have any experience with the other brands. My best friend in St. Louis put one in his Charger SRT8 a couple of months ago and he loves it. I say do it. Check out my post on the install at this link: http://www.300cforums.com/forums/srt8-general-discussion/24340-mopar-cai-6-1l-3.htmlMikes 300C H.E said:thinking about going with the Mopar, is that a good choice???
lookin for OVERALL Best in performance,sound,look,$$$$, Thanks for your replys!!!!
I do.Tork Monster said:In researching this I found that very few manufacturers report HP gains, most just say "improved flow".
However, the most successful name in the industry, K&N does make a pretty big claim for their "Air Charger" system of 21 hp gain. They make a number of compatible intake systems, but this one (for the 5.7 OR the 6.1) looks like a winner (if you are to believe them).
See their website:
This system is not legal in California, but I don't live in California...
Anyone have this one on their car?
That's interesting - the tubing for THAT K&N is SMALLER in diameter than the Mopar CAI specifci to the 6.1. Are you sure you got the right one???70GT6 said:I do.
Ido not think the tube is smaller, I think the color makes it look that way. The tube matched the TB so there can not be much difference.Tork Monster said:So... are you pleased?
Do you think their claim is true regarding HP gain?
You might want to check that. It's so wide there is no possible way it can curve like that either.70GT6 said:Ido not think the tube is smaller, I think the color makes it look that way. The tube matched the TB so there can not be much difference.
Do not know about any HP gains I installed the day I got the car. I know everyone has their favorites but K&N does make a quality product, I have them on all my cars and I can use the same "red" oil for all of them.
(I do like the Mopar version, but I like the black a little better)
