The Challenger Hellcat has a separate cold air intake directly through a "fake" headlight, but not the Charger. Does anyone know why this is not needed (or present) in the Charger? (The front grill seems perhaps a little bigger, I can't tell if that is the reason).

Interesting...I just assumed it would have cod air intake.

Yeah, that could be a problem...

But anyway - if there is a cold air intake, I don't see it on any of the literature... there may be one just not as, um, "cool" as on the Challenger.

The Intake is still there its just through the grille...
NinjaChicken is right. The intake is in about the same spot/side on the Charger, hidden behind the grill.
I guess because the Challenger has the old school 71 look to it and the Charger is more of current, not old school, sedan they didn't do it. :rolleyes:

With the design of the Challenger headlights, it just made sense to do it the way they did for the old-school 'nod'. However, for the Charger they didn't have the same luxury, but still need the additional air coming in, so it is behind the grill. At the end of this video the SRT Engineer points out where the air intake is:

Ah ha! That's where they snuck it in!

Thanks everyone for the direction - just keep looking for any tidbits I can find, as that is the only satisfaction that is available for now...

I think the fog light spots are not for fog lights on hellcat either. They're cold air intake...I think. I did see someone state that on a youtube video. Can't recall which.
On both the HC Challenger and Charger, they deleted the fog lamps in order to get additional cooling to the two coolers located on either side -- transmission oil cooler and engine oil cooler.

You can add the Hell cat intake to a RT challenger, The inlet is in both headlights on left and right ride. Mopar sales the tube and the box for under 80 dollars for both. I added this to my 2015 RT and it worked great , it lowered intake temps by 40 degrees on certain days. Also you can open up the opposite side headlight and left fresh air in to motor compartment and lower those temps too.
