Well you could you give us the part number for the iat. I was on the challenger forum site talking about the longer ,does iat plug into 05 iat wire harness or does it need to be modded. So does the lx srt8 cai fit perfect, What year is the srt 8 cai you got. Help member out. I like to do this mod.

Re: Back to stock air intake

Chris, the part number for the IAT Sensor for the 392 Challenger is: 05149279AB. It plugs right into the existing plug on my 06 WK, but DOES NOT WORK on my 05 Hemi LX. Don't know if the 05 WK is the same or not. The plugs are the only difference. My plan for the LX is to hit a junk yard and find one that works, cut it out and splice it into the LX harness. For your info. the Challenger sensor is about an inch longer than the stock units.

The LX SRT-8 airbox has to be modified to fit, because on the LX it mounts on the other side where the battery is located on our WK's. The bottom has to be cut a little (hence the larger bottom inlet) to fit the contour of the WK fender well. The mount also has to be completely modified. If you use the LX SRT-8 intake tube (I did), you'll have to plug the stock IAT Sensor hole, which is right next to the throttle body on the LX's, punch a new hole near the airbox where the stock WK sensor is located, and also extend (you can see it in the pix) the length of the tube a little. IMO, if you don't have one laying around like I did, you'd probably be better off picking up a WK SRT-8 setup. Then there's no modding and it all bolts right in. My LX SRT-8 setup came out of an 06 SRT-8 Charger, but all the early LX SRT's are the same. Hope this helps.

Can you tell me where you got the OEM SRT air intake tube from? $35 shipped seems like an amazing price!

I second the SRT8 intake tube ordering place request?
I've searched a little and have not found anything.

Where can you find one? New or used?

Well s**t I guess that's what we get for not buying an SRT8. LOL.
I just need to have the 545re transmission for towing. Something the SRT8s aren't really built for.
So I guess I'll be keeping my Limited Hemi and buying an SRT8 when my boats payed off.... ?

Why not just add a few mods. to the 5.7 engine and get power comparable to the SRT's for a fraction of the cost. Also, if you do about $100-150 worth of mods. to the transmission (plus custom Superchips shift schedules) you'll have the 545RFE working about a 100 times better than it does in stock form. I've done relatively non invasive mods. to mine that approach 100 hp. more than stock, still have MDS (get ~22-23 mpg on the highway), and it looks like the SRT (with the SRT body kit) and I custom fit the trailer hitch to the SRT bumper so I can still tow with it if need be.

Can someone please provide the Mopar part number for the 2006 SRT8 intake tube?

Looking to add one to my 5.7L. Much appreciated.

That is basically my other idea. I bought this WK only about 3 months ago, and since rebuilt basically the entire suspension and front steering etc. Among many other things. Like custom catch can, egr, exhaust mani gaskets, cats, o2s, serp belt, pullys, etc...
Probably out about $5k into it already. It had 99k miles on it. So I'm not sure how much more money I want to stick into it to make it basically an SRT clone. Versus just buying one.
I just added a 3875 super chip to it. The "tow tune" seems to help but my question with that is do you still use the "tow/haul" feature on the jeep? I have been because it removes 5th gear for towing and to my dismay the super chips tow tune doesn't do it alone.
So then the question becomes, how much does the jeeps tow/haul feature take away from the super chips tow tune?
I've looked around a lot and emailed them but have gotten very round about answers....

Re: Back to stock air intake

It doesn't take anything away. It basically takes out overdrive and holds the gears a little longer. I run the Superchip 91 performance tune with trans app. and I drive in tow/haul mode all the time around town. Definitely use it when towing

How do you run the tow App with the performance tune?
I have the 3875 programmer.

I love the performance tune on 93 octane. But know you're not suppose to run it while towing.
But how do you couple it with a tow tune?

PLEASE inform me.

I understand the tow/haul feature doesn't take anything way... but then what does the SC tow tune really add?

I'm really interested in the performance/tow tune that you speak of now now though
