    I came across this video where a Charger Scat Pack with a stock air intake was raced against another Charger with a cold air intake. The results? The Charger with the CAI had a slightly better throttle response (and sound) but, other than that, there was no real performance gain.

    Naaa, we all know that each BIG "M" sticker is worth at least 20-30 RWHP :)

    If that's the case, my 6.1 must have more horsepower than you car.

    I don't feel using 2 different cars makes for a very good comparison. What they should have done was tried it again with the air intakes switched to the other car.

    I think it all depends on the car, the CAI and the way it's tuned.
