5 to maybe 10 with the AFE/Hammer but don't buy for the performance, you won't see much if any in that alone, it's purely sound unless it's being accompanied by other mods such as exhaust, programmer, etc.

ya, definetly wasnt expecting much out of just the cai. It will definetly be accompanied by exhaust as well as a diablo. Thanks again to everyone for the input.

cause there are proven better ones out there. chrysler did a good job on the intakes of these cars so not just any intake is better . its been dyno proven and some of them actually lost power. airhammer and afe did the best.

Actually, Mopar parts can/do also void it. Before we get into the whole debate over this again, in the end, it really depends on your dealer and how mod friendly they are if a problem arises. Just fyi.

im running the K&N and i like it alot now that i come to think of it not many of you guys are running it.... what gives?
I run the K&N also and love it. I do not have the numbers on the airhammer and AFE, and the K&N claims (being optimal word) 21.09 HP increase.

Noise is noise. I dig my Mopar, and have been in multiple other 6.1 LX's with the AH and AFE. I can't see/hear/feel a bit of difference between my setup and theirs.

For a piece of mind, I suppose the recommendation is correct based on the dyno's that were done during the Mods Faceoff. Enjoy the new found sounds from the intake! :fing02:

Bottom line is go with what you like the look and sound of!

The Air hammer looks the best, and "MIGHT" make a teensy bit more power (which I doubt) but it's the most expensive.

I read the whole battle of the CAI's back in the day and they did little to sway my decision. There's just too many variables to take into account and dyno runs varying by 5 HP are LLAAAAAUGHABLE!

After reading that the AFE did better I still went out and bought the Mopar one. it was cheaper (at the time) and looks better. AFE may be a little louder but whatever.

If I had to do it all over again I would've bought the Predator AFE combo because it makes more economical sense (they were $499 for both at one point) but it wouldn't have looked as good as the Mopar.

Buy for looks, sound, and price nothing more. Performance isn't anything to take into consideration.

What vendor has it at $499? Just curious! Thanks. :fing02:
