    Can you hear the supercharger from the drivers seat? Hope so.

    If you want to really enjoy the supercharger whine, get an aftermarket intake. (There is little to no proof that they do anything at all, to increase performance vs. the stock intake).

    I bought one for the sole reason that I wanted to hear the supercharger working. LOVE IT.

    I have heard the supercharger whine quite prominently on both of the Hellcats I have owned. These cars are whiner than a sleepy, hungry, two year old! :)

    April

    PS - I did not/do not have an aftermarket intake on either one of the HCs I have had. The aftermarket intake will make the supercharger a lil louder, but it can still be heard quite easily.

    I can say without reservation, (at least with the K&N) that the intake whine is not a "lil louder", but is a LOT louder, vs. the stock airbox.

    The Hellcat's supercharger was designed so only the driver can hear it thus preventing passengers from wanting to drive it.

    Yes, it is very noticeable.

    Throw on any open-element CAI and it doubles how loud the whine sounds.

    I used the Bwoody, they have the best flow. Not needed right now, but when I do my tune and pulleys, I will need it.

    Pretty much any open-element filter (not a sealed box) that's not a K&N will be fine.

    K&N has always been crap. In many cases, you actually LOSE HP when using one. Not that we're putting on CAIs for gains, that's foolish, but we do get a little bump, so why go backwards, right?

    There's a reason why K&N are always the cheapest option, they're junk.

    While no one believe the BWoody delivers the huge gains they initially advertised, there is a little bump that people have shown on stock Hellcats, and it will make an actual difference if you do more serious mods down the line.
