Any one running K&N air Filter or after Mkt. filter in the HC Chargers?

Stock filter is better, but your going to have to replace it. K&N will last longer but you will not notice any difference in power.

Basically, stock paper filter can get wet, etc.
K&N standard air box filter is an upgrade, but you will not notice the 1 or 2 hp gain.
I would save my cash and upgrade to a JLT or LMI cold air intake.

I'm only speaking of what I have found out with my Hellcat Challenger. But it you want to spend 300.00 or maybe more on a aftermarket system that doesn't do anything go ahead. To me it didn't make sense to do so since I don't drive my car in the winter.

There's a new air intake lid for our car coming out hopefully next year! The new intake lid works with the lower half of the intake. It just replaces the top section! I've seen and tested it myself and it looks great and works very well! The guy who designed it designed so that a cone filter can be used! I'm now aloud to post a picture of the lid because he patented it!

The lid will pre-assembled! All you have to do is install it on the lower section. It takes under 5 minutes to install!

That would be nice for sure! Will be for both Challengers & Chargers?

Yes for Chargers, Challengers, 300s, Jeep and more.. I'll post more pics of the results when I install this intake lid. It's been 4 years in the development, and the price is going to be way cheaper than the current aftermarket intake systems on the market!

CAI does in fact free HP. It requires tuning.
For a stock boost car, all you will get is a couple HP and the beautiful sound.
But when your pullied, ported blower, larger Tbody, headers, and free flowing exhaust, absolutely it matters.
Most people just do it for the SC sound and I do not blame them.....

I do like the concept idea of this, but it does not seal to the hood to keep hot air out like a JLT kit would....

If you look at the pictures its a complete seal! For those who don't want the complete seal and want to hear the supercharger whine, all they'd have to is remove the top section as in picture 2, close the car hood and get ready for a louder supercharger whine! As you can that section (setting on the engine bay) is removedable and interchangeable for another section with a different logo or color. I'll post more pictures shortly if you are interested! I love the concept because you can interchange 3 sections of the intake to various colors and different logos.

I meant with the lid open it is getting hot engine compartment air....

Yes it will get hot just like any other open intake. But when lid is closed I've noticed that the intake temperature is cooler but lesser supercharger whine. This intake gives you more than anything out there! Especially at car shows. Like I said I'll post more pictures if you are interested!

In addition, Hellcats don't really benefit from CAIs in any way as our PCMs don't adjust fuel off of the IAT sensor. The air mass is first charged, then after cooled. So, realistically, 10-20 degrees cooler IAT amounts to nothing as the twin screw just heats it up again anyway and then after cools that. Hence why your supercharger coolant temp is the best gauge on present engine performance, as the cooler that is, the more power it makes. On intercooled and NA cars, IAT numbers matter. To us, not so much.
