Re: 2015 GC SRT Intake recommendations

Not a fluid dynamics type but wouldn't the reverse vents in the hood draw hot air out of the engine bay at highway speeds ? The flow over the hood would create a low pressure area at the vent sucking air out. I'm a product of public education so don't laugh.

Re: 2015 GC SRT Intake recommendations

Has anyone tried the Mopar CAI? Part number 77070054. Its shown in the Mopar catalog at my dealership and says for all models, including SRT, but I can't find ANYONE with an SRT that installed one.

I'm trying to figure out what to spend my $150 customer appreciation certificate on!

Here are some pictures of the aFe intake I just installed yesterday on my 2015!

2015 GC SRT Intake recommendations

In another thread, someone spoke of using the bottom of the SRT airbox but the top of a non-SRT airbox because it pulls air from the trim in front of the box.

Does this make sense?

Re: 2015 GC SRT Intake recommendations

Could the two bolts in that small trim piece be removed to direct fresh air at the CAI?

Re: 2015 GC SRT Intake recommendations

Hello everyone, I know this thread is a little old. I just got a used 2014 SRT with only 2061 miles on it. I was looking to get an Injen CAI installed. My concern is the ventilation on the SRT hood. Have any of you experienced any issues with rain or car washes and your CAI? I'm just worried that the placement might allow water to be sucked into the CAI.

I just ordered the AFE CAI for my 2015 and I had the exact same thought. Anyone had experience with this?


EDIT: Actually, I just did some searching and I believe that trim piece is there to be removed for use with MOPAR intake- if and when they get around to making one. Check out this pic: http://moparonlineparts.com/dodge-du...ke-p-3331.html


In addition, I was wondering if anyone has installed adhesive backed heat shielding to the intake tube and engine side of the AFE heat shield and whether it made a difference?

Check this document I found on the net it may help although I can't find that part No 77070054 it is only for California it seems to mention all Mopar Intakes I think

I have an Injen CAI, this will apply to all CAI's I guess, if you get on a step ladder and look straight down through the vented area on the bonnet all water will run down past the water washer bottle when the vehicle is stationary, when the vehicle is moving the amount of water getting into that area would be next to nothing because of the action of the air moving over the bonnet.............when moving slowly on the road I have never witnessed any water on my dry filter...............you can buy a special filter cover for your cone filter which will deflect the water if your still worried....the name of this filter cover escapes me at this stage......

In addition, I was wondering if anyone has installed adhesive backed heat shielding to the intake tube and engine side of the AFE heat shield and whether it made a difference?
I wrapped my Injen CAI with exhaust wrap and saw 2 degrees C DIFFERENCE between ambient and intake air.........however when you stopped at traffic lights etc the heat would soak into the tube and my difference would be 7 Degrees C, I have included some pics as well without the wrap as it runs now.....much better without the wrap....
