I got a JLT air intake for my Challenger Scat Pack. There is a ton of heat-soak when I'm stopped and I think it's hot air come in through the hole in the front (if your not familiar with the JLT airbox it has a hole in the bottom and a square hole in the front facing the headlight). Once I start driving it cools back down but I still don't like it and I think its sucking in hot air from the radiator when I'm driving as the IAT is always at least 3-4 degrees above ambient. I'm having JLT send me the foam for the Hellcat headlamp intake tube and need the tube (the foam makes the square hole a 4" round hole). Pricing on those tubes is ridiculous, $50-$85 for a plastic tube, WTF?
Anyone know if a less expensive aftermarket tube?
Has anyone ever just bought a 4" tube and did a DIY tube? 4" or 4.25"? Rubber hose or aluminum ducting? Something like that?
