Are you one of the many Charger SRT392, Scat Pack, or R/T owners that upgraded your car with the Air Catcher intake duct from the SRT HELLCAT? Well we have an all Mopar upgrade for you!
In 2015, the Challenger and Charger SRT HELLCAT’s debuted with the “Air Catcher” intake duct being one of the cool engineering touches on the cars. The Air Catcher is a duct that allows air to pass through a hole in the parking lamp/turn signal on the Challenger or a square panel behind the grille of the Charger to the air box giving a somewhat ram air effect. Owners of Chargers and Challengers quickly purchased the parts to add the Air Catcher to their Scat Pack, R/T, and SRT392 versions of the cars.
At the same time, Mopar made an adapter that allows the Air Catcher on the Challenger to work with the Mopar Performance Cold Air Intake but failed to make an adapter to be able to retain the Air Catcher on the Charger. However, with the debut of the Challenger T/A in 2017 a subtle difference in Mopar Cold Air Intakes was noticed by some Charger fans.
That’s right Charger fans, the Challenger T/A specific Mopar Cold Air Intake is different from previous versions of the Mopar Cold Air Intake. While yes, it is designed to work with the Challenger T/A specific hood ducting, it also conveniently uses the stock lower air box which means the Charger HELLCAT Air Catcher duct will work with this intake. While technically this is not an official kit from Mopar for the Charger. Our parts department friends worked with us to figure out the required part numbers needed to make this install possible.
The following part numbers are required:
68322215AA – Vent Tube from Airbox to Oil Fill
68322213AA – Air Filter
68322212 – Air Box Lid
This is about as simple of a mod as it gets… the stock lower air box is retained thus only the lid, filter, and vent tube are replaced. All in, this version of Mopar Cold Intake is going to cost between $250 and $300, but it looks great under the hood of our Charger SRT392 and we are more than happy with the install. Next on the list, can the duct on the hood of the Challenger T/A be modified to fit the Charger hood? Stay tuned and we shall see.
Without these guys help, we could not have figured out the part numbers for this mod. A very special thanks or our friends James and Dan for their parts system knowledge and help. If you would like to order these parts, feel free to give them a call.
