I have to ask, what is D. I. P. S.?
So the part for the wide body is different than the regular Scat Pack? If I understand well.

Also, considering I have the Shaker package, do you think the air volume is replacing the volume the Helcat box moves? Meaning would it redundant for me to add it?
Hope my questions make sense!
Thank you.
D.I.P.S

The HC airbox and tube should be the same for any challenger 19+. No clue if it will work for a shaker, as I don't own one. I linked a video earlier in the thread with exact part numbers.

Thanks for the link. Looks like they are closed. Posted as sold out on everything. I like the trunk pulls!

The DIPS are largely useless. On top of that, I recall someone's tube cracking for an unknown reason, but they suspected the rigidity and swelling of the DIPS plastic shoved in there as a potential culprit.

Food for thought.

How are they useless? They keep stuff out. Yes, I know the bottom of the air box has a hole in it, but it's one less thing i'd need to check on.

Well, much of it is personal taste in the "how it looks" aspect. I think the DIPS grill is yugly. It is not something that I would want breaking the flow of the front grill esthetics.
The SCALA is not too bad as the grill is recessed and it can "match" the grill pattern you already have.
For me, again personally, I like the way it looks and it is only a matter when I wash the car, with a round brush spending 60 seconds to remove the few bugs which have caught a deadly ride...

What do you think of these?Scala Motorsport
I do not run any screen in my intake on my 2015 R/T I did this mod to. I did remove the passenger side plug in the front and put the newer style cap on the back of the headlight (just pushes in). in the winter I remove the rear plug on the pass. side and tun the wires from my trickle charge through it.

Pictures of the Hellcat Airbox Mod
Only after watching your complete video I realized the capacity of air coming through in the Shaker which is what I drive. Of course a Hellcat box being totally worthless and out of the question.

I wouldn't say the Shaker intake is equivalent to the Hellcat mod due to the path the air takes. The Hellcat tube getting air forced into it while in motion and relatively straight shot to the air box. I'd think both would compliment each other and add to total cold air.

Well "A Guy" I stand corrected and learning that I should never be so strong about my opinions especially when not founded, even more being a mechanic with a grade of "zero"... Nice video which makes much sense.

Thank you...

The thing is, neither is a source of "forced air" not with that big whole in the bottom of the airbox.
Also the drains on the SHAKER base would prevent any positive pressure
