In installed mine yesterday. Driven it twice and never noticed a rattle.
Are all your clamps fully tightened? Could it be where the snorkle is going through the heat shield? Could it be rubbing there?

Make sure everything is tightened down good not sure what it could be I've never heard of this issue coming up. Could you be more specific as to where the noise is coming from?

I don't have the Mopar CAI (yet), but when I first installed my AFE CAI, I also had a rattle. The problem was that the metal air box was vibrating against the metal near the radiator overflow tank. Went to Home Depot, spent $5 on some self-adhesive felt and put it anywhere the metal was in contact with each other. Problem solved.

What i would do is with the engine running hold the intake, if the rattling stops you probably have some vibration somewhere that is caused by contact.
