I ordered this kit from Luke last summer and am very pleased with the results. It does a very nice job of directing the air to the airbag while still sealing it off from the engine compartment.

Dang .... I wish I knew how to rotate the thumbnail. (Thanks @A Guy for flipping the thumbnail.)

Personally I think the scoop is better off cooling the manifold and moving air through the engine bay. Time and money better invested would be an LMI , air raid(fabbed) true fender pull or the hellcat air box mod. Imo your spinning your wheels trying to pull air from the hood. The purpose of a cai is to get fresh air from a dig. Pulling air from above a hot engine bay or sun radiated hood really won’t do a thing. Take that for what it is ......

I like this explanation. I’m a huge fan of the Hellcat swap. Much cheaper. And let’s be honest...cooler looking to have a “fake headlight”. I took the engine cover off so the manifold would get air straight on it from the scoop. I just thought the scoop route would be much less in cost than it is. I definitely love the headlight intake more though.

Always do right. This will gratify some, and astonish the rest.

Does that work on the Scat Pack hood with the two side vents or only on the single center scoop T/A hood? It looks like my widebody SP has placement accommodations for the T/A scoop CAI but I haven't seen any examples. I know it may not work any better than the hellcat lower box mod, but it sure looks cool.

No, but Cervini's has a kit for the standard dual scoop hood for about $350. However, I too feel that the scoops and belly pan aid in moving hot air out of the engine compartment and are more beneficial doing that then they would be feeding a direct intake system. Our stock intake systems are more than adequate at providing cold air to our engines. I installed an AEM high flow dry drop in filter in my R/T Classic and think it's the best path for overall performance.

You just want an exposed filter?

He has the old style Hell Cat hood that now comes on the Scat Packs. That is the hood he is asking about.

I do not think the T/A package will work with the old style Hellcat hood. Sorry.
