    Hello aFe,
    I have a question on the flow rating on your Pro DryS filter for the 2015 Dodge Challenger 6.2L Hellcat. Your filter is rated at 712 CFM at 1.5" H20 (as per your website). The stock filter is rated at 610 g/s. The other OEM filter rating is efficiency 98.5% pressure loss @ max airflow. Since the two filters are not rated for airflow in the same unit of measurement, I was wondering what the comparison was with both at CFM at 1.5" H20. I want to make sure I have a better flowing filter in there with the aFe 30-10220 Pro DryS filter. The car is going in for tuning Tuesday, so this is important information that I need to have a clear knowledge of. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and answer this.

    Steve

    I would like to know the flow of this filter as well since its the same filter you sell for the V6.

    I removed mine and put the original back in for now.. probably my imagination but I swear I was hardly getting any boost.

    After doing a little driving tonight, the supercharger whine seems a bit more noticeable….power still feels smooth but I really can't tell whether it's gaining or losing any. I'm looking forward to seeing the response from aFe in regards to flow vs. the OEM Hellcat filter. The good thing is that it's an easy swap in/out.

    both the R and the DRY S 30-10220 & 31-10220 claim 25% more flow over a stock filter.. that would be somewhere around 1300 CFM?

    You could try a home test similar to this one with the AEM vs stock.

    did you notice the stock filter 04861746AA used in that video isn't even a hellcat filter which would flow even more? no glue lines on bottom.. I picked up this AEM filter the other day too and will return it today!

    I'm wondering why nobody has responded yet…I'll be very upset if I am using a filter that flows less when their website shows fitment for the Hellcat and says it flows 25% more than OEM.

    Has anyone tried this "testing" with the Green filter?

    I will delete the post with the video and move that to a separate thread. I will keep the first post in here, as it is a direct question to aFe regarding airflow.

    last I read, the green filter only filters down to 5 micron where the others filter down to about 1 micron

    aFe,
    Any response in regards to your Pro DryS filter's flow compared to the stock Hellcat filter?
