JLT has jumped into the Hellcat intake market with both feet. We have owned a 2016 Hellcat Charger for nearly a year now and have been testing and designing this kit the entire time.
This kit includes a fully Roto Molded airbox that uses the factory fresh air (Ram Air) inlet from the grille/headlight that also seals to the hood. We feel this is the key component that puts our kit well above the rest. Not only does this box help keep inlet air temps down by blocking the filter from hot engine heat, it also helps hold in the cool air getting rammed in from the inlet creating a high pressure area around the filter.
Speaking of the filter, our filter is a custom built design made by S&B. It has a built in bell mouth for super smooth and fast air flow as well as huge 1" deep pleats for more surface area than filters that look much bigger.
The intake tube is roto molded plastic with a huge 125mm for superior airflow and NO heat soak like metal tubes. With a mouth of 4.5" at the throttle body end, it is ready for any larger throttle bodies that may come in the future.
MAF and IAT adaptor plates 2015/16 Hellcats have a Mass Air Flow sensor and 2017-2019 have an Inlet Air Temp sensor. We designed our kit to work with BOTH. Included in each kit are CNC machined aluminum plates, gasket and stainless screws to adapt to either model years.
HEAT SHIELD Includes new roto molded plastic heat shield to block engine heat at idle and low speed.
RAIN SHIELDS Each kit comes with custom designed and water jet cut Lexan shields that bolt to the hood grille. Not only do they keep rain from the filter, they allow the cooler rammed air to stay in the box around the filter VS just being pushed out of the grille.
Incorporates fresh air inlet from the grill.
Uses a large area to make sure the filter has tons of cool air.
