Best Intake mod and HP Results?

Wanted to know what owners have found the best intake mod to be and how much gain in HP you can expect.

The best intake mod is a GSM supercharger, & you will gain significant HP.

Re: Best Intake mod and HP Results?

Sorry not to clarify earlier but just intake airfilter mod? Is there a conical cold air K&N system available anywhere? And what gain could be expected?

I'm sure the GSM delivers ballistic performance. I wonder how many pound pulley most people are going to go with? My guess is between 5 to 8. Are the SRT pistons are forged or cast?

You can use the AirRaid filter, just order the one for the 5.7l it is a perfect fit. The new airRaid filters are very nice and seem to be a better construction than the K&N. I have run them on a 2004 Titan and a 1994 Viper with very good results.

Re: Best Intake mod and HP Results?

SRT8 Pistons are forged aluminum. I'm working on a CAI that draws its air outside the engine compartment. The factory one is very restrictive as any inclosed versions. The open filter, outside the engine compartment is the best to use. (i've done some crude testing myself and definate performance gain was noted.) The exhaust is the biggest bottleneck stock. I just installed a replacement muffler and wow, big gain in power. Cost less than $250 HTH Gene

Re: Best Intake mod and HP Results?

So the Airraid 310-178 will work well? I just want to ditch the box & paper filter, and get an open element intake from a reputable name.

Why would you get rid of the sealed air box to put an open element filter in the hot engine compartment. You need to realize that the factory air box has great cold air feeds from outside the engine compartment and is not restrictive at all. Putting a filter unprotected in the engine compartment is a step in the wrong direction. All you get is hot air from the engine bay. The intake on the SRT8 stock is pretty darn good. There are no real restrictions at all and it has great cold air feeds. Open element intakes are old news and now days with how well engendered factory air filter boxes are you need to reconsider removing them.

Re: Best Intake mod and HP Results?

Thanks Randy. I appreciate the feedback. I'm not a performance guy at all and my extent of 'performance' mods has always been e-fans, intake and exhaust. I'm a visual mod guy (I know I'm in the VAST minority among GC SRT owners), so I keep it simple when it comes to performance. I will take what you say as great advice. Thanks!

Your very welcome. This is the industry I'm in and I would be the first one to change the air intake if there was a true benefit to be had.

Re: Best Intake mod and HP Results?

Again.... thank you. From what I understand, I still should do exhaust though, simply becuase it's an easy way to get closer to the potential of the GC? I see stuff about MagnaFlow, Zoomer etc..... would you mind giving me your input on what exhaust setup would be a good one? I do not race, will not race, and want a nice sounding, solid performer, as opposed to squeezing maximum hp out of the ride, while sacrificing comfort (read interior sound).
