I don't see how there's an incompatibility. I have a REVi intake, and it stops where the stock intake box stops. The CAI starts at the other side of the wall, not through the intake box area. Intake or nothing, the CAI was designed to fit the front area; regardless of what intake you have. Who has been spreading this rumor anyway? It doesn't make sense.
If anything, the issue with the CAI would be an aftermarket front bodykit.
EDIT: Oh! I just remembered! The VFAD stretches to the inside where the stock box only has a hole. I see the problem now. What you can do is look for scrap plastic or metal at Autozone to fabricate an extension tube.
