I know lots of 2011 owners are seeking a CAI solution, so here is one of the first confirmed to fit on the 11 R/T!

I just installed one last week on my 2011, LOVE IT, really improved the performance, and sound. It really works well with my exhaust upgrade of the flowmasters. Well worth the money, and easy to install.

Are these legal in CA? CA is lame......so I am guessing that both these aren't legal and I will have to wait (for what seems like) years :(

Just throw it on there anyway and keep the stock setup just in case. Our laws in California were built on fabricated facts. I don't listen to them anyway

Is there a difference in performance between the two (I got an auto 11 R/T). I see that the one with more estimated HP gain cost less. They look exactly the same to me, what is the difference?

The Typhoon is Polished Aluminum, and the Standard K&N is Plastic

I would guess that the plastic would be better, it probably wouldn't get as hot as the aluminum tube.

K&N tends to agree with that assessment. They claim a bigger HP gain with the plastic "FIPK" version than with the metal "Typhoon".

Also, you asked earlier about "CARB" approval in California. There is no CARB approval for the 2009 and later cars from K&N. It's a total racket (as you may already know). It just means that K&N didn't pay CARB for "testing and approval". It's so easy to install and later to swap back. I have this intake on my 6.1L and I plan to swap it back to stock if they give me a problem smogging the car when the time comes.

Go for it. :D

Thank you DragCad Racing, good info. One more question, I have heard talk about the stock setup for the 11's being as good or better than the aftermarket CAI's is there any truth to that? :scratchhead: Even if it is a 5 HP gain i'd still probably be interested in getting one just because the stock setup looks cheaper than aftermarket (and any HP gain is welcome as well).

I think you will see a notice gain on the r/t over the stock system, we picked up quite a bit when testing cai on our 09 r/t

Couple of questions: Do these line up bolt right on? I was told the mounting point is different on the '11 models & that a mounting point to the car was slightly different & required modification. Also, any word on if the BBK will work with '11 R/T models?

Thanks for any help. I'd like to order one ASAP but want to be sure.

These were test fit on the 2011 by K&N, so yes they do fit. As far as the BBK we have not test fit one nor has BBK to my knowelge to see how the fit is.

Will do. Im not an over the top fan of K&N. I never felt or heard much difference putting one on my Ram HEMI but the AEM i used on my Magnum made a decent difference in sound if nothing else. Ive also been told K&N posts HP numbers from the first pull which isnt accurate & thats why they show such high bumps in power. I do CAI more for engine bling & sound so I can live with small gains in power but would like to hear more sound. They seem to have beat everyone else to market so Ill probably go ahead & order one this weekend unless the wife has other plans for my (her) money.....

Well BBK's CAI for the 11' seems to be good to go also. I just checked their site and did a parts search for an 11' Challenger 5.7L and their CAI came up along with a 85mm TB. But the TB is a little bit too expensive for me, I'd rather get a radar detector or something for that much money. The BBK CAI looks nice though.
