Best factory look Cai from oz

Hi folks
Just finished this today , I'm new here so I don't know if this has already been done ...
New 2015 srt jeep , did the standard injen as a lot of us do the power increase is more from the lack of filter restriction more than anything , the heat as we all know that theses things put out is quite high then changed the blue filter to a k and n and even better but I opened the bonnet to show a friend after a drive and the heat was redicilous and the intake pipe was very hot to the touch
That sparked an idea ... The original set up was the same length ss the injen the ruber didn't heat up etc but the inlet to the lower box is pretty shit so I got on the inter web thing and looked at photos of the lowers models the v6 limited has a snorkel from above the light and the srt blocks that off ... I found the v6 intake box base and it all fixes into the same place and all works perfectly so I'll buy a k and n panel filter on Monday and it should be the best of all worlds

Very interesting idea. Need to get it dyno before and after to see any gain? Theoretically it will have an improvement but the surface area of the panel filter is limited compare to the cone filter.

Great job only thing of concern is that the box and filter are designed too flow half the air need by the srt and the filter is much smaller. As it is the prob with the standard cleaner is it doesnt flow enough air and it's much bigger.

Re: Best factory look Cai from oz

Here in nsw the open kits such as the injen are not allowed even though we do them . But I love messing around on cars I've just finished my own house and as a builder I built a great garage and a new tig welder so I'm going to keep going until I get it perfect I could buy the whole thing but building in the garage keeps me away from the reality tv my wife watches upstairs in the house
I'm thinking about a duct from the break scoop style vent under the bumper

I like it!
Most aftermarket intake kits are bs...hot air, heat soak and dodgy dyno tests...
The Hellcat uses a very, very similar airbox/panel filter as SRT and makes 700hp!
Most/all dynotests have hood open... do you drive around with your hood up?? Monitoring intake temps while actually driving around, the std box is about as good as it gets and these engines hate heat...Using headlight duct plus opening up the lower section same as SRT to allow more airflow to the filter and all is good. Using this on my 8lb Magnacharged SRT.

Re: Best factory look Cai from oz

So you used the factory SRT bottom and used the V6 top and Snorkel? Can you post part numbers and prices?
