    Hey Guys/Gals -

    I just picked up my 2016 Challenger Hellcat last week….the project begins!

    I made a stop to Spankin Times Motorsports in San Bernardino Ca today and made an order:

    Metco Supercharger Pulley 2.85
    aFe Power Cold Air Intake
    Diablo ECM Unlocked with Trinity Tuner
    JBA Cat-Delete Pipes
    KW Springs
    Bravado Wheels
    M/T Drag Radials

    I'm excited to start with this and see where is goes….I will update with photos and Dyno results when I have them!

    JC

    Good build. Stick with the stock air box. No power gains with after market cai.

    If you haven't ordered the aFe Power Cold Air Intake, I would buy a LegMaker CAI, The only one with proven track results.

    Update - Original list has been completed. The car made 750rwhp and 670rwtq on 91 octane. I am looking into e85 now (1 station semi-close) and/or Whipple SC. I will update with photos soon.

    We actually built a custom one. I bought a leg maker, but my tuner tested a number of air boxes, filters, etc. He calls BS on most of there power claims. This is what he built - came out amazing.

    Nice build:cool:
    I'll bet you can't wait for all the Fasssst Fun Racing down the track!! :D:cool:
    Get out and have fun, don't let your car stay in Build Hell ;)

    Is your car tuned with Diablo or HPT.

    Your custom CAI is not a new idea it's very typical on the LX platform. My daughter Kate who races my SRT 2010 with an HHP Procharger build and her car has a similar CAI on it.
    If gains are BS, I can tell you the Stock box would have been better than what you have.
    Your Legmaker would give you a gain and comes with a "rainshield."
    LMI had independent testing done and Chris owns a Hell Cat in Florida.
    You could race your car and after getting use to the new build, then install the LMI.
    It would be great to report any difference bet ween the two.

    Linda :)
