Ok so I just bought a 2014 Challenger R/T and I noticed that the cold air intake is different than others that I have seen. Did this come stock or is this after market?

Aftermarket from mopar performance...….
My car with one also, but took it off for better filter system and colder air.

How much additional HP is it giving me ...?
In reality, you won't notice any extra performance from the installation of that air intake all by itself.

Some additional HP from that device is possible, but it would require the engine's tune be adjusted to take advantage of any extra air flow the device might provide, and even then, it would only be during WOT operation most likely.

This can be added as a "factory" option. I have one in mine. It pulls cold air from the driver's side wheel well. I also have the shaker hood that connects to the air box for cold air from above the hood. Plus I have the Hellcat headlight intake tube for even more cold air. lol
All genuine Mopar add-ons.
I wouldn't swap it out since you won't get any noticeable gains by switching to a different CAI. Just keep the filter clean. I deep clean mine every oil change.

I'm thinking about installing a supercharger that will work with the shaker

I definitely noticed gains and louder exhaust just from my k/n
I see that thankfully the mods took care of this individual, but for historical record - false - this is not possible.

There are a hundred butt dynos out there that say it does. Only problem with the butt dyno is it can’t print out a slip to back up its owner’s claims...well, that and the whole inaccuracy/untrustworthiness aspect.

Could that have been a Mopar edition Challenger, then it could be "stock"?

Looks like the best option before a hellcat headlight intake setup. OP i would stick with it as most open sir systems dont seal away extra heat like yours does. Factory knocked it out of the park along with the hellcat box

Yes, the Mopar 14 or one of the numbered Shakers built in 2014 would have been delivered with that open airbox.

A long time ago a lot of us did dyno comparisons on CAIs, headers, etc.,
The "gains" range from 0 to 10 hp, which is not noticeable on a 4000 pound vehicle.
Custom tuning is not required to realize said gain as the minimal increase in air charge is still within the parameters of the stock tune.

You would notice a difference if you lessened exhaust restriction via headers and/or high-flow cats. i.e. Intake and exhaust work together.

Intake and exhaust work together.
