I still think the bwoody with the pre filter or the new Che intake from Australia would be your best choice. Pulling hot air from the engine bay is still a problem imho...even with the injens shield.

Hmm, but if I went for the INJEN anyway, would I be doing more harm than leaving it stock ? Or do I atleast get some gain ? I mean the stock air intake is already placed there covered with a box, so wouldn't it suffer from pulling hot air from the engine bay too ?

Agreed.

Re: Best CAI for the SRT in a very hot Climate ?

Wouldn't a Thermal Shield help with the heat from engine bay problem ? Thermo-Tec : Cool-Air Tube Heat Shield

Thats why I added heat reflection insulation on the motor side of the shield! and removed the air dam above the headlight where other Gc's pull their air from!

Nice, where did you buy that insulation from ? Also, did the INJEN give you any problems ?

Amazon.com: DEI 050501 2' x 21" Floor and Tunnel Shield - 3.5 sq. ft: Automotive

It's self adhesive pretty easily mold able remember it is still metal so it was kinda a pain to cut.

I had some left over from that it's 2ft long and 21" wide like mybe 1/4" thick works great tho.

0 Issues my only complaint is the the IAT it's hard to tell if it in the center or not the harness kinda pulls it down.

This.

I don't mean to insult anyone here, but you have to be out of your damn mind to put an Injen or any Short Ram on in such a hot climate. I understand the mod bug, believe me. Just put a K&N filter into your stock air box and call it a day.

The only other option is the true CAI. It's the only thing that's going to help. Sure the Injen will help you in your first 15 minutes of running but after that you should suffer over stock. The big problem with the true CAI in a dusty climate is you'll have to remove the wheel and wheel liner to access your filter which is a pain in the ass.

Personally, with your warranty issues I would stick with stock. Caveat Emptor.

A-kon you are correct no ill feelings at all. With all the warranty concerns he should definitely go stock with maybe the drop in.

If you need to clean a true cai like the bwoody, just pull the intake tube. Two clamps and a nut. No need to remove your wheel and wheel liner.

Thank you for replying. Can you explain why an Injen would stop being beneficial after 15 mins of running, especially compared to stock ? You're not the first one who tells me this but no one is explaining why. I'd appreciate if you do Also, if I get a K&N filter and replace the stock one, by how much will it help ?

Everyone here installs CAIs, can it be that they're all misinformed (kind of unlikely) ?

I appreciate all suggestions and responses but please explain why, as I feel more comfortable knowing the reason behind a decision rather than basing it on other people's words.
