This is probably a topic that has been beat, but I wanted to post a photo of the results of the Hellcat lower airbox, Hellcat air filter, and headlamp air duct. I had my cruise set at 63 mph and this is what the gauges were showing. Notice the intake air temperature relative to the outside ambient temperature. Not too shabby! At least I don't have to worry about heat soak.

How's it possible that the IAT is 15 degrees cooler than ambient ? I can only figure if you had AC air being ducted in.

I've got the set up and shaker and I'm + 3-5 over ambient

Did you get it from a dealership or somewhere else? Can you give me the part numbers and cost?

I got mine from a dealer before I actually picked up my car, and I don't remember, but one place was way cheaper than anyone else. I went with the AFE plastic air duct, the factory one is pretty flimsy. The box, duct, and Hellcat filter were about $100 total.

Is there any problems with driving the car in heavy rain after installing the Hellcat Airbox? It only makes sense that if air gets in, that water can also.

Well, since the Hellcat/Demon drive OK in the rain, why would there be? if you look at how the box gets air into it, it's unlikely that water could possibly be an issue. In the old days, a mechanic friend of mine took a garden hose and capped it with his finger and sprayed water right into the carb to blow the carbon out of my '72 Cutlass. A LOT of water. No problems. It worked, and stopped the pinging it had since it was about a year old.

I bought the tube from ebay, for $39.99, mine has the square hole in the air box, it fit perfect.was a bit of a pain to get the filter and air box in and out, couldnt get hand in to put tube on headlight duct but a screwdriver from the front got it lined up. I have the Shaker so it gets air from that, the new tube, and the bottom of the airbox gets air from the lower grill.

Did the same thing, but drizzled auto tranny fluid instead of water...

My dad use to do the same thing. He said he would certainly clean out the carbon!
