Saturday I installed the SRT chin spoiler and belly pan with brake ducts on my RT. Very easy upgrade. Takes about 2 hours.

Nice video instruction Speedy - I may end up using that someday. Noticed the USMC plate in your video...you a Marine?

Stack Performance does this with their CAI . they remove the brake duct on one side and claim some ram effect. They have a pre-filter that they use in addition to the standard filter for extra protection. I used this setup before my KB.

Great job! With all the coin you have dropped on the car now, you could've started with an SRT8. Just saying ;)

Thanks for the great video speedy! This is just what I needed.:bigthumb: I have an SRT8 chin spoiler that I had gotten last year but haven't gotten around to installing it. You've inspired me to get the remaining parts and finish it off. Though I will probably have to wait until the weather warms a bit:browsmiley:

Haha. Honestly, being the master negotiator that I happen to be, I've barely got more than the $48K price for an SRT in my Challenger. The 1400HP axles put me a tick over the $46K mark.

Remember I got my R/T back in 2009 when they were giving them away at ESPP and 0% financing :guiness:

That's the main reason I went with the R/T vs. the SRT8 model. I knew I could build a car MUCH better than the SRT for less.

Nope, that's not for me. I like mine up and away from rain/water/elements.
I completely agree. When I was debating between the traditional CAI and the Stack Performance CAI, I just thought any additional maintenance issues wouldn't be worth it (plus I'd want to do this SRT chin spoiler mod).

Wasn't sure if running a duct from the chin spoiler up to the CAI in the engine bay would be a problem since any water or elements would have to have some serious driving force to get up there.

Stack Performance does this with their CAI . they remove the brake duct on one side and claim some ram effect. They have a pre-filter that they use in addition to the standard filter for extra protection. I used this setup before my KB.
I did think about this, but having the filter so readily exposed to the elements didn't seem like something I wanted to deal with. Not that theres much rain in so cal anyways...

people always think they can just route air directly to gain performance. not so !although it MAY work , any constriction , pressurization or turbulence can in effect restrict flow.
just food for thought as the ram air everyone desires ,seldom sees any significant gain. sorry to stray off topic ! JMO

Looks good Speedy, nice job once again. I did mine last summer. It gives it a much more aggressive look than the stock R/T spoiler. I wondering if the new SRT lips will fit earlier models?
