    I think I found the video the OG poster was talking about...

    pretty sweet video actually, I mean its pretty general when it comes to specific installation but informative nonetheless.

    check it out...

    I'm not so sure I buy those numbers. They said 30 ft/lbs of torque from adding just a CAI. Sounds like a load of BS if ask me.

    also they didn't mention about pulling fuse 11. I agree with Metgo, the gains seem way too high.

    What are the realistic gains that you have achieved? All the talk of fuse 11, am I to understand that is is like a memory and by pulling it you wipe it clean, so that it learns your driving habits, again. How long does it take to learn your habits?

    its different for every car, but commonly manufacturers use equal intervals of miles. for example, my buddies VW "re learns" his driving habits in encrements of 10, 50, 100, 150, 300, 600, and 1200 miles respectively.

    here's a link to the second part where they combine the CAI with a free flow exhaust and some mild ECU tuning.. the dyno don't lie. that CAI was the best mod they did.

    that's interesting about the learning habits, how about HP gains with an aftermarket CAI?

    I think at most you should expect from a CAI is about 10 hp and 10 tq and those numbers would be a bit on the high side if you ask me.

    I think it also depends on how constricted/conservative the engine is to start with from the factory. Obviously if the engine is purposely mellowed out to meet some kind of emission or other standard (as is often the case in CA) then a free flowing CAI may have more of an effect than vehicles sold elsewhere in the states with less restrictions.

    Oh yeah!

    I can't wait to see what my numbers come in at.

    Here was my stock baseline(all number are to the wheels):

    Baseline:
    Torque: 370.1
    CHp: 374.8
    CTorque: 360.1

    After Catback (Corsa):
    Torque: 378.0
    CHp: 382.6
    CTorque: 370.5

    So, using the numbers that they showed in the video for the CAI intake, the new Dyno should look like this:

    Torque: 378.0 <--- Not sure what this number would jump to
    CHp: 422.6
    CTorque: 400.5


    That is INSANE!!!!

    Woo Hoo!!

    I have a factory FREAK!!

    One thing that is odd is my CAI has a rubber elbow at the TB and the one in the video is metal all the way around the bend to the TB. Do I have a new version or, is that the newer version? What are the differences?

    I dont know why,but Mopar makes two different CAI's.one for the 5.7,and one for the 6.1(i dont think anyone else is making two),the 6.1 has the rubber elbow.the 5.7 is a one piece tube

    Yeah, in this install video though, they are installing one on a SRT8. I wonder if they have changed the design for the SRT8 to match the 5.7.
