Seems the WK2 and V8 intake flows pretty well OEM. The sound is better with a CAI, however. I think just about everyone here already had a CAI on before the tuner... so its kinda hard to compare. I was going to suggest perusing some of the SRt forums, or other Chrysler product, but I think you will find the same thing.
