I found a Mopar CAI on Craigslist for a fairly good price, it is off a 2009 Challenger. In the description it says it fits 2009-2010 5.7's, from the picture that he posts it looks like the exact same set up on my 2011. Do you guys think this will still fit, if not what might i need to do?

When you look on the sites that sell them new, a lot have changed the description to include 05-12 models... i believe the 5.7s all have the same set up and layout under the Hood so i would assume it would fit. They didn't change anything in the chally from 10 to 11 so I'd say it would work.

I will try and get some pictures of my under hood area. The subject my not matter really now, I did some research and from what I read Mopar did a quality job of actually building the OE airbox and a CAI isn't really needed for anything more than looks.

People are saying that a new higher flowing air filter and a cleaner elbow coming off the throttle body is all you really need to get the throttle response, sound, and whatever marginal HP gains you might make. So I purchased and AEM air filter and see how that works.

If anyone else has Insight I would love to hear it.

I've actually been wondering the same thing for my charger. I was thinking of getting a k&n high flow filter for the box but wanted to find out what is the better option. I want the oomph more than the looks...

Yeah me to, i don't need a ton of under hood mods I would rather have go fast mods and still look stock underneath. I have heard mixed reviews on the K&N filter, from what I read the AEM is the better route, it is a dry filter vs. the K&N oil soaked one. That though is an option cause I am still riding the stock one from when I bought the car. I should be getting it next week, I will update if there are any real feel or power upgrades.

I'm also on the original filter that came with the car, and at 3 years old, i'm pretty much due for a new one... is the AEM a washable filter like the K&N?

The stock filter and air box is as good as it gets. CAI just adds noise. I don't even run a filter at all. I have a screen over the impeller to keep the small birds out.

Yeah the AEM one says that it is washable and guaranteed for life. Yeah my car is a DD i am not sure I could run without a filter, I drive down 72 everyday past the rock quarry I don't need that shit getting sucked up.

If you like stock looking just make sure you run an SRT or R/T R&T intake, the one with the smooth top and bigger diameter. It isn't a huge difference but that plus the freer flowing suitcase muffler is why 06 thru 08 Daytonas and R/T R&T were rated at 10 hp over regular R/Ts.

Does anyone know where to find that smooth intake without the silencer. I saw on another forum where a dude just cut it out and it didnt look to bad actually.

Either you can look for a 1st gen SRT air box cheap or get the following part number from you dealer 4861940AC or go to speedlogix who sells them http://www.speedlogixstore.com/product-p/4861940ac.htm

You don't need the air box just the tube.

I'd sell you mine but Mo took it in partial trade for his old R2C intake Smile

Reminds me I should clean that thing it is a bit dingy just haven't had time to wash in simple green as it takes forever to dry and I don't have a working compressor to blow it out either heh.

The tube is with my SRT air box in the Magnum right now. I brought a pretty decent Specter CAI for the time being. No worries it's still being used. I already recharged the filter last year before the winter.
Just take simple green and clean the filter before you go to sleep and have a small fan near by and that filter will be as good as new by the morning.

Their website spooks you by saying it takes a long time to dry.... that thing has a lot of surface area. I just rarely have time on the weekends to get any garage time these days!

Well if anyone else has one of these intake without the silencer on it I would be interested, not $97 interested but interested. I'm trying to increase HP on a budget, and keep my wife from killing my ass.

Fair enough I'll beat that price. 96 dollars and not a penny less. Or try what I did for awhile, head over to a hardware store and get a PVC plug that fit the silencer opening and, as long as it isn't gonna be in a show for a bit, go that route till you find something else that you like.

Man that reminds me of my '96 Impala that had the LT1 engine. It had a huge air silence on the top of the engine that was ugly called it "home plate" because the shape. You could rip it off and put a hockey puck in the place and clamp it down. Looked weird but lots of folks put text on there to make it look cool.

Eventually I got a Camaro 1LE package intake elbow that didn't have any silencer. That was a fun car, they still look great on the road today.

Funny what 10 model years can do... 90 more hp and 60 more pound feet for my R/T R&T and I paid about the same price for both. The Impala I got used in 2000 and the Charger in 2011 so I guess the Charger was a bit "older" at the time but both had around ~23k miles.

HAHA thanks Mo. I might just do what you said and take it off and plug it, I saw a guy online that cut it off and covered the hole with a piece off a plastic black mud flap. It actually didn't look terrible and cost a lot less that $96. Does the silencer just twist off?

I think so on those newer ones, the old ones you have to remove a clamp.
