Well back to the topic....


"The Shaker hood is fully functional and helps improve the Challenger's performance by forcing cold, high-pressure air through the hood scoop and feeding a low-restriction air filter."

"Basically, the Shaker, which is the air intake attached to the top of the engine, functions to force cool air to the engine, thus adding horsepower to the heart of this beast."


Or better yet this may sum it up better and is more factual -

Despite being a functional piece, the 392 is rated at the same 485 hp/475 lb-ft output whether you spring for the Shaker scoop or not. When pressed for answers, SRT engineers told us that while the motor gets the same software calibration regardless of how air is delivered to the engine, the main performance benefits of the Shaker scoop can be seen at the track, where high temperatures could possibility force the engine to dial back some power during prolonged thrashing on standard Scat Pack cars – an issue which SRT says the Shaker design is better suited to prevent.

In other words, "When repeatedly pestered. SRT engineers told their interrogators what they were clamoring to hear so they could get a moments peace". Kind of what we do to our bosses all day a work, when eye rolls just won't get the job done.

I've been saying this all along, the shaker does not "make" more power, it helps "prevent" power loss due to elevated air intake temps.
