maybe you guys can bug mike@bwoody. he makes a short ram for the 2011+ nonSRT's. He will just need a donor jeep for a day

There a couple out now if you search. The Bwoody short ram, Airaid, Volant, and supposedly Mopar has one on the way.

The Volant looks great. There's a thread in the WK2 forum.

Can one of You please confirm if the 2012 WK2 has more air intakes than the snorkel above the driver's side headlamp? Is there another nostril to the wheelwell?

Thanks.

I just realized that the OP has a SRT so then no I dont know if any of the intakes available will work because the previously mentioned ones are only for 5.7 Hemi and Pentastar.

Finally saw the WK2 SRT8 today. Note that the air intake is much different than the base WK2 in two key ways:

1) There is no secondary air box in front of the TB, more of a traditional tube intake. The same "847" TB is used but it is located within the tube itself.

2) The traditional snorkle from the filter box is completely different. The base WK2 snorkle is between the hood top and grill top and is completely closed off on the SRT8. Instead the snorkle feeds from the bottom somewhere, I would guess from the front air damn. There did not appear to be an air scoop off the driver's side wheelwell but not sure.

While I also love the Volant in the WK2, I'm not so sure the 2012 SRT8 intake needs an aftermarket upgrade.

Yellow circle shows base model WK2 snorkel location permanently blocked off. SRT8 snorkle feeds in below filter box.

SRT8 Throttle body same as WK2 Hemi model "847".

I know that Stage6 wanted to make one too, they were looking for a SRT in Florida. FYI
