Dwight has a few idea and people in mind for it. Soon though bro.... soon. They'll definitely be ready for the beginning of next years MOPAR race season.

I will make sure to get by the shop soon for mock up. I need to come up for the exhaust anyhow.

Re: First TRUE RAM AIR intake for SRT8 Jeep. Race only!

It would be cool if you guys could make the passenger headlight "quick disconnect"...snap it out, install your intake and rock on. Those 2 rear headlight bolts are hard to get to especially if you're doing it at the track!

What would happpen if an innocent bird were to fly by your jeep at WOT doing 100 mph?
Hahahahahhaahaha, would you see feathers out your cannon tips????

Re: First TRUE RAM AIR intake for SRT8 Jeep. Race only!

One less bird in the world I guess. Not worried about it Keoni.

I've only been running the top headlight bolt for sometime now. The top bolt holds it in as solid as can be. It takes me about 10 minutes to swap my BWoody for the Ram Air intake from start to finish. The hardest and longest part in unbolting the damn BWoody!!!

Re: First TRUE RAM AIR intake for SRT8 Jeep. Race only!

Harry? You ever get any times or gains with this badboy? Looks cool, how could it work with a headlight if at all possible? Or is swapping the only way?

Maybe someone could design one using the fog light channel instead and just lose the fogs? It could be a true dual ram air setup using the fogs spots? Same concept, just the upward track could be an issue but who knows?

Sorry for the late reply guys. Been away from computer land for a while.

Yes we did get some gains. Paul aka MONDO, ran one for us. He did 3 runs and his best was 11.70, then swapped to the ram air intake, added 5% fuel and went 11.58. He actually added a bit too much fuel. 3% would have been fine but it was super cold that day and I didn't want to risk his motor. He never bothered to back the fuel back down to 3%.

Problem with using the fog light is it's such a small intake area. Having the big funnel is key. Having a hole the size of a grapefruit vs. the size of a watermelon isn't as effective to grab a lot of air.

Like said before, if you used the fog light opening, and left it on the street, you're crazy susceptible to slamming water into your engine during a rain event.

These are available now. We will be running a GB on them for $325.00 vs. the MSRP of $399.00 as well as our Electric Water Pump kit.


ON EDIT.... forgot to mention, we have fitted the intake on the 08+. It fits all Jeep SRT8's.
