SRT chin spoiler "ram air" project on R/T

I'm going to be modding my stock R/T airbox soon (the one that dodgetony did to his) which includes cutting off the baffle on the intake tube and sealing it up and also cutting open the front of the airbox itself to bring in more air and adding an Amsoil drop in, which I've been hearing so many good things about.

The other mod I've been thinking on doing to bring more air to that area is to get an SRT front chin spoiler and constructing some tubing from the opening in the chin spoiler up through the hole thats right below the airbox and have it directed right into the airbox to create somewhat of a "ram air" effect to bring even more cool air to the airbox.

I asked dodgeboy77, who wrote an excellent how-to post for installing the spoiler, and he suggested intercooling tubes and thought it could be done with just the spoiler and not the SRT belly pans as well. Keep in mind that i'm not concerned with cooling the brakes with this mod.

I need some input from people that have tried this, and what obstacles there are to hurtle? I think Sugarprobe has also tried this. Anyone else have any suggestions or opinions?

Thanks!

I had a Banks Power CAI on my F250 Diesel and modded an intake tract directly to its snorkel from the front grill. I ended up getting water in my intake while driving in the rain and had to have a drain hole in the bottom of the snorkel to let it drain. So be careful that there is enough of a rise to avoid water ingestion in heavy rain or create a baffle. Also put in a screen to cut down on the number of full sized bugs that you have to clean out of the filter element

I also had the Banks 4" stainless turbo back exhaust on that truck along with custom SCT tunes from Innovative Diesel. It was a smoke belching torque monster. I miss my truck.

thanks for the heads up, thingsabove. i dont drive my challenger in the rain, so i dont think i'll have to worry about that too much. i also planned on putting a screen of some kind to keep big bugs out, as you said. I believe there is enough rise that unless the bumper was submerged, it wont pose any problems.

anyone with the SRT chin spoiler WITHOUT the air ducts, that just have it installed on the R/T just for looks, could you please take a picture of the driver side opening with as much of the flash or light showing the inside of the opening...i would really appreciate it!

Matt, our club President (Jack09) has just the SRT chin spoiler installed on his R/T. He also has an CAI he made himself ran into the fender, and you can see the filter by looking through the driver side scoop.. I'll try to find some pictures for you
