    You know there is a cooler behind the location (both sides) where the fog lights are on the 392, right? You don't want to cover up that grille.

    Thanks for SA. I had heard rumors that the 2016 model was going to have Fog Lights.

    Interesting. Hadn't heard that yet. If that's the case, maybe there will be a redesigned front end? Or a fog light that is ventilated somehow? Either way, the way things are today (2015 model year), you don't want to plug up those holes with fog lights. One side has an oil cooler, and the other side has an auxiliary charge air cooler (intercooler, basically) that need air.

    I haven't heard anything about fog lights on a hellcat,, cooling is a huge issue,,I don't think they want more issues trying to cool this car..that being said,stranger things have happened..

    The Auxiliary charge air cooler... does the intake charge actually pass through this cooler or is it an air to liquid arrangement to help cool the coolant sent through the intercoolers in the S/C?

    A separate loop of coolant (specifically to cool the intake air charge) flows through this cooler, and the larger cooler (center of the front of the vehicle), as well as the two coolers int he supercharger itself. There's an electric pump that moves this coolant through the system. The intake charge itself doesn't move through this cooler. It's just used to cool the coolant so that when it passes through the supercharger it is at a lower temp.

    I can't find the more detailed video, but this video touches on how the system works: It just doesn't go into as much detail as the other video that I can't find.

    Thanks! The reason I ask, is on my other S/C cars, the Intercooler has to have the intake air charge flow through it or around it. In an air to air intercooler the intake charge flows through the intercooler while ambient air passes around the intercooler. In the water to air, the water flows through the intercooler and the intake charge passes around it. Thus, what we have is two water to air intercoolers in the S/C. The parts of the system out front are I believe heat exchangers. They don't handle the intake charge, they cool the liquid that is piped through the intercoolers to cool the intake charge.

    Exactly right. You can also monitor the temperature of the coolant in that loop, with the gauges in the I/P and in the SRT Performance App pages.

    from what I've heard the 2016 fog lights will be integrated into the front splitter, and not the actual front bumper.
