so I have ordered the kit to make my hood functional ram air and im tore on what is the best cai to take full advantage of the ram air effect ... :4-dontknow:
I would figure that a legmaker CAI would eliminate any issues with the intake. You would still need to get the 2010 coolant tank as well if you owned a 2011+ SRT.what u also say is correct but u can get a k/n filter the same size i just wish i could get the functional kit for my srt 8 i have the hood but no kit is out their they say the intake is the problem go figure
JS1977 is right on point!That's a great story and all about the oil filter versus dry filter but don't go based on that. Take it from someone who HAS at T/A hood with the functional kit. You have to be cautious about what CAI you get as they may interfere with the extended vent directing the air to the CAI. You may have to trim the box/block off plate if you get something besides a Mopar CAI. You can get any CAI you want as long as your willing to modify it to work with the vent system, don't worry about the filter as if you don't prefer the one it comes with, you can always order the one you want through S&B filters, spectre filters, k&n filters, etc for a fairly cheap price. I would go with Mopar, but thats just me as it's guaranteed to work with the vent system.
Something a little more concerning is the coolant overflow tank, I'm not sure if you own a 2011 or newer challenger but if you do, you'll have to purchase a 2010 coolant overflow tank as the 2011+ will not allow you to shut the hood with the vent system connected to the hood. It's fairly cheap (about $50-60 bucks). I got mine from Luke through steve white motors. I'm here if you need any help or have any questions.
You can make it work for a SRT8, you just might have to modify the CAI, but it's not undoable since I know of SRT8 owners who have had it done.i am glad to finally see someone else has got it right the under hood kit only fits a 5.7 hemi which would be a r/t challenger and not a srt8.

I have a 392 intake manifold and the T/A vent doesn't come in contact with it, what is the problem is the CAI box, I haven't taken a dremel to it yet, but plan to soon.help if u no a person or their is someone on this site that has installed the the t/a hood on a srt8 and installed the venting system please contact challcuda because for those that say they have seen it and u just have to get out a dremal and grind a little its my understanding from mopar performance that the venting system hits the intake manifold and i am not grinding mine thanks for every ones time
