Hellcat/Redeye/Demon hood differences

I know full well that the new Hellcat/Redeye hood is not well liked by everyone on this forum. It's not my favorite hood to look at either, but knowing the functional intent behind it, I appreciate it a little more now. It seems they've managed to flow more air into the intake than the 2015-18 HC hood, while achieving less drag and front end lift than the Demon hood. Performance is improved without any loss of stability at high speeds. I found this interesting article on Allpar about it: https://www.allpar.com/news/2018/07/...xplained-41259

Agreed, I think the best place for an intake scoop would be right under and just behind the edge of the chin spoiler. It would be out of sight and not ruin the lines of the car plus any air that made it under the chin spoiler would be sucked into the engine, enhancing the negative pressure under the car. Of course ducting and ground clearance play into this as well.

Good article.

The hood's alright with me and the fact that it's functional I think makes it worth it.

That filter is red like the Demon filter so that means you've got to clean it and oil it regularly.

I don't like them at all. They remind me of the ones on a Pontiac Formula 400.

Thumbs up

The new Redeye hood is totally functional and that's what is really important.

I see more likeness to '69 Pontiac Trans Am to me...then again there weren't a lot of '69 TAs built.

I find the '69 Firebird quite to my liking, the E-bodies styling had a lot of influence from the GM cars:
