I wonder if one of the site's sponsors, like perhaps RIPP or other that possess a dyno can quite finitely answer the question as to whether or not a CAI by itself can increase horsepower. Or is it just placebo effect. "I spent money, looks shiny, must be better. MUST!"
I don't know either way, but I'd REALLY like to hear from someone willing that has a dyno. Either on 3.6, 5.7 or both. I would not look to the actual CAI resellers for confirmation on this. That would be a conflict of interest. Some people totally and completely fall for every gimmick blindly. Smart money questions everything.
Anyway, if anybody with a dyno that maybe has some bit of time, I'm sure we would all really appreciate the end all be all about CAI performance improvements or lack thereof.
P.S. Those affiliated or partnered in any way with CAI manufacturers or resellers, need not apply.
