    I was watching Detroit muscle today and they where going over the development of the SRT brand up to the Hellcat. They said they where changing the stock air intake to the aFe power momentum air intake which allows 40 percent more air flow and adds 37 more horsepower. Any thoughts?

    There is a whole thread of thoughts about this train wreck.

    Seems several members purchased that unit and most sent them back for a refund. Some demonstrated lower numbers....others no change.

    Probably spend that money on a quality tune if looking to pick up some additional power.

    It requires a tune, at the minimum, to get 37 more horses.

    Thank you everyone must have missed the thread. I get the point it's not worth $545. Thank you, love you all.

    I lived it, was on the list, received the intake and promptly returned it. The excuse for using is that it makes the supercharger sound louder, and it looks cool.

    With every new vehicle comes the requisite snake oil salesmen. It doesn't take long to debunk them. Forums are a great tool. I forget who it was who did that comprehensive test but he hit it out of the park. Afe had absolutely no response

    should also buy strut tower braces and subframe connectors, these will take at least ten seconds off your road course lap time.

    Was watching that show myself and kinda laughed when they had the piece on the intake. Clearly it's a sponsorship situation but I kinda chuckled when I saw it.
