aFe POWER (advanced FLOW engineering) is excited to announce the new Momentum Series of Sealed Air Intake Systems for the LX platform, beginning with the Challenger Hellcat.

We have finalized our testing, and will be sending this to production shortly, and these intakes will be available soon. This same sealed housing (with integration to the factory ram-air setup, more on that below) will work across multiple engine options in the LX family, so look for more applications soon.

Let's get to the fun!

aFe POWER Momentum Sealed Air Intake System - 2015+ Dodge Challenger Hellcat Supercharged 6.2L



The aFe Momentum Intake System is built to maximize airflow, and utilizes a massive air filter designed specifically for this intake. By outflowing the factory intake and improving efficiency, gains of +37HP and +33lbs x ft of torque are realized at the rear wheels with just this upgrade. (Dyno sheet below)

That takes the maximum power from 665.78HP to 701.67HP!

Quick Data Points:

• Improved Horsepower & Torque - Improved Throttle Response
• Sealed Intake Design - Roto-molded Tube w/Premium Hardware
• Massive Cone Air Filter - Choice of Cleanable/Reuseable Oiled or Dry Filter Media
• One-Piece Sealed Housing w/Clear Sight Window
• Direct Bolt-On - No Cutting or Drilling - 30 Minute Install - Utilizes Factory Ram Air
• No Tuning Needed


(This is a prototype 3D printed part used in testing - Final version will be roto-molded and smooth)​



Development Information

For those not immediately familiar with aFe POWER, and our Intake Development process; All design and engineering comes from our 165,000 sq. ft. facilities in Southern California. We utilize the latest in technology, 3D scanning, 3D printing, CAD design software, and have an in-house AWD Dynojet Dynamometer.

We scanned the Challenger engine bay, analyzing the stock intact tract, and designed a new intake system that outflows the stock setup. Once the initial design was completed, we were able to "print" plastic prototype parts from our 3D printers, and construct the complete prototype and install on the vehicle. (Those of you that attended the Spring Festival of LX's this year saw the prototype installed.) From there we were able to test the vehicle on the dyno. Through rigorous testing, such as monitoring performance and ECU parameters in real-time, we were able to tweak and make any changes that were necessary.

Once R&D is complete, we move to manufacturing of the intake itself, creating the intake molds from CNC machines, and production begins. Premium hardware is used on the kit, including stainless steel T-Bolt clamps and Momentum intakes are designed with fewer parts, which allows this intake to be installed in 30 minutes for most.

Installation for the housing mounts the kit directly into the factory location on the fender well, ensuring the coolest air possible is being captured from the factory ram air intake inlet. A large clear sight window is built into the housing for easy filter inspection without removal of the air box. The largest filter possible was used and is available in two different filter media options: Pro 5R is an oiled filter media for maximum airflow, while the Pro DRY S "oil-less" filter media provides maximum filtration.

(For those with other applications and engines - This housing will work with several other vehicles, we'll be developing those right after this launch)

Still finalizing production, but we will announce soon! Was nice to get the intake out at the track this weekend at Chuckwalla.. Let our test car get a chance to do some endurance testing at speed..

Welcome to the site.

Any difference in dyno verified power output with the paper filter vs the oiled filter options. Thanks.

The air filter we use is designed specifically for this intake, and dramatically bigger with a ton more airflow. What I will be able to show soon is the stock intake w/paper filter versus the aFe intake in total flow by CFM. Wait until you see the filter difference over stock. You'll understand why.

We do offer a dry version of the filter media for those who want a little less maintenance, but it will have an effect on horsepower, especially with high HP engines like the Hellcat.

So, I guess I was born a skeptic. Are you telling us that improved air flow to the supercharger will net that much HP gain? No tuning was performed to achieve this??

That's my question. With your setup what is the power difference using your paper filter vs. your oiled one... Have you dynoed the difference between the two yet?

any major improvements for the oiled version instead of the dry version??

We enjoy skepticism, that's why we provide both a dyno sheet with every product, as well as an airflow "dyno" showing airflow differences, which I doubt you'll see from any other manufacturer.

Our Pro DRY S filter is still a progressive synthetic media, it's not the same as a paper filter. Paper will still have a very slight improvement on filtration, but at the expense of airflow, and having to replace it constantly versus being cleaned.

And yes, it does produce that much power, as we've increased the volume of the airbox, have a much larger air filter with improved air flow, and the car is able to take advantage. The high gains you're seeing are in proportion to the engines already staggering output, it's actually a low percentage of gain, but has huge impacts because of the large numbers. And you will absolutely feel the difference. We're excited for these kits to hit your hands.

With every car, including the seemingly brilliant like the Hellcat, there are still gains to be had..

I'm more than a little skeptical, how about a non partial review by a member here that is going to have their car on a dyno?

Look forward to more info.

I'm with you Top Cat... I've never seen a CAI boost hp and tq that much...with no tune. Hell, I haven't seen that much with a ported intake manifold...

I can see 5 to 10 rwhp...

What's the price point? $300? Ballpark?

Great! That's why we are here, to interact, provide some good products, including stuff you guys are looking for. We're already getting started on headers and exhaust.
Nice!

What's the plan for the cats? High flows?

We are seeing +46HP out of the new C7 Z06 Momentum intake.. You have to realize that supercharged engines are all about airflow and efficiency. The 5 to 10 rwhp are typically on less displacement motors, probably N/A.

Not sure on the price right now.. The technology into R&D and mold building is extremely expensive. But obviously HP/$$ is a no brainer..

Glad you guys working on products like that already! Did you notice any whine change from the supercharger with you're intake?? And maybe it's a dumb question but why you're dyno run showed a result of 665 HP? Every Dyno I saw was way over 707 stock.

665 stock is to the wheels. Figure a very low 15% drivetrain loss and you can factor the flywheel horsepower (which the 707 is) at around 780HP.. Dodge is lying about the numbers. With the intake, figure 825HP at the flywheel. If in fact it was 18%, you can do the original math. This car is a MONSTER.

It's hard to hear on the dyno with the exhaust blaring, and this isn't my vehicle enough to know how much additional whine is coming, but that is a possibility. You can't miss the S/C whine driving.. :D

If this fits into the existing engine compartment space and there is no tune is necessary to get that kind of results, that would be amazing... how would it do with a tune and where could such a tune be done??
