2013 RT Charger CAI and tuner Help options please!
Hey guys I bought a 2013 RT charger in November and i'm ready do do some mods to it. I really want to start with a tuner and a CAI. What are the best ones to get performance wise? Also the CAI i can install my self correct? Thanks for all the help want to get it asap, Can't wait for the performance boost.!!
I think the only tuner that will work RIGHT NOW is the hypertech intercept. I bought the DS trinity and am waiting for it to release the tunes. I've seen a lot of people using the K&N CAI but I went with the mopar CAI just cuz it went good with the engine cover on mine
Oh wow. Thanks for the advice on the CAI guys. Any idea when the diablo tuner will release? Is it worth tuning now if i opt out on a CAI and I don't do exhaust yet? Or should I buy the tune when i get exhaust done? Thanks for all the info.
TBH, a CAI won't do much, your car already comes with a decent breathing system.
If you want it for looks or sound, and want to dump $300 by all means.
If you want it for performance, build your own! About $130, and much better.
There is a how to here by gmg1411, I doubt there is that much difference in the new style where you couldn't make it work with the same stuff.
Agree, I went the CAI and tuner route with my Mustang GT and there was no gain in HP when I dyno'd. K&N advertised 8-10 hp gain. It does sound good but IMO that is all you get. Most performance cars today have adequate air intakes for the throttle body.
I would keep the money and invest in the Diablo tuner when it comes out. Should be soon from what I hear. Put on a set of High Flow cats and a 3200 Stall converter. That combination alone should get you nice gains.
