Welcome to RamRebel. Do your self a favor and take the time to do a search on the cold air kits. You will find in most cases you are throwing your money away. The stock air filter system is a cold air unit in the ram. All you will gain with an aftermarket CAI is noise, and you take a good chance on loosing power because the engine will be sucking in hot air from the engine compartment. And the stock air filter will out flow the throttle body.
This topic was brought up so many times on the Challenger sites that no one would answer them any more.

I would suggest not getting a CAI. A large amount of engineering went into the design of our trucks. There has been a large amount of problems with aftermarket CAIs sucking in water. Your factory system is designed to be the best for the vehicle by being designed in the least restrictive manner possible, sucking in cold fresh air and not allowing water to get into the engine. Better to be safe than sorry! My buddy put an aftermarket CAI with a rain shield on his Chevy and during a rain storm he was driving around and sucked in water. After putting in a new engine, he just runs the OEM intake now.
