That is what I thought. Can I run the CAI and aftermarket exhaust w/o a PCM flash.

Yep! As long as the exhausts cat doesn't through codes and you want to do a rear O2 delete.

There are other intakes available. I'm running an FWI (Fender well intake) from Intense-Racing. A little pricy at first, but the quality and fit are worthwhile.

Not to thread jack, but i was wondering, does the FWI make the same cool sound that a CIA or gutted airbox does?

No reason to do both. Either one will remove the intake from the hot engine bay.
