I know that a lot of folks uses that setup. It should give you a better sound. My understanding is that it is only the air box, so the rest of the intake (air tube) is still stock. In that case you may be better with a drop-in filter, for example K&N.

Any thoughts on this CAI? Is this any better than the stock box and stock filter for a daily driver, or just bling?

If it uses the stock tube, you're not likely to see much improvement on the top end. You might see marginal improvement in throttle response and maybe MPGs. It will mostly be for looks and sound. If you like this style filter, the Mopar CAI can be had for just 30 bucks more including a high flow intake tube.

I had the Mopar CAI and I saw a little gain on top end. Nothing gained down low. However, my gas mileage improved 2 MPG. The sound at WOT was awesome.

I personally couldn't see 400$ for the Mopar kit when you can find the Airaid kits for $180. I've heard several people saying they used an open style tube from a Charger with the Airaid kit to open up flow as well.

I'm with beas62. Mopar CAI gives a very nice sound. Whether you want to have a Mopar part or not, it is your personal preference. Originally I considered K&N and Injen CAI, but finally went with Mopar CAI. One advantage of Mopar CAI is that it is CARB legal, so if your state is one of the few that require those emission standards, you will be safe with Mopar.
