    Thoughts on this, same false advertising as AFE?!?! At least they say results may vary at the bottom of the dyno sheet hahaha. Looks like an aluminum intake tube also, so it could def heat up in the engine bay.

    I would be very concerned how this setup affects the heat exchange vent on this side. (This looks like the off the shelf setup for the 6.4 they offered but relabeled for Hellcat use?.?)

    Oh geez. Well if the AFE doesn't show gains in my road tests coming soon, maybe I'll order one and try this one.
    If that also does nothing, then stock intake will remain.
    Also I would think aluminum would be great for the intake tube, takes a lot to heat up aluminum, but I'm not expert on what is better, aluminum or plastic, but I know aluminum is pretty good at not conducting heat.

    That's a good point, seems it seals up against the hood, not allowing the heat of the engine out on the driver's side?? Hmm

    If I had no intake yet, I would not even consider this one based on the fact that it looks to block air from leaving the extractor since it seems to seal to the hood. This looks like the older model SRT intake rebranded for the Hellcat, as someone else also stated above….and 38hp gains at the wheels…well that will be another 50 page thread LOL. This will be my last comment on this and then it's off to the spectator section LOL.

    Make sure you push it in the opposite direction so it loses power. Just kidding. Maybe.

    OVER 38 hp and OVER 21lbs. of torque all with no tune as well?!?!?
    They better hope it does. We have some good members on here with dyno experience. Would be really nice if one of these cai's would work as advertised.
