Welcome to the VTCOA and Red button club. What serial Badge is your NR? I would keep the Volant intake on Mine has one and it creates alot of HP for my beast. I got mine all blacked out with the headlights and tails. Cops love it for sure. They pull me over just to take a look. Also Repaint the calipers and add VIPER LETTERING Looks really cool.

#346/400.
Word is still out on the intake.. I like that it has the box to keep warm air out, just dont like the snorkel blocking the air to the motor.
Thanks for the welcome and the advice..

The scoop let's air out not in. That's why people loose their scoop when using that intake

Interesting.
I have googled all the tops and from wiki..
"The hood scoop allowed cool air to enter as well as forcing hot air to exit from the engine bay, thus helping the engine to run cooler."
Thanks for that info.. any articles related to this or other aero on the truck..

I wounder if I can get a plug and take it off just making it a nice filer box.

That statement is sort of correct. At high speeds the hood scoop does allow air in, which acts to prevent aero lift....maybe some cooling. But it's main purpose is to let hot air out at stationary or low speeds.

The hood "Scoop" is an air EXTRACTION scoop that becomes MORE effective at high speed....It was placed in a low pressure area of the hood intentionally

See post #24, #25 and #27....

Hood scoop insert

Post #29 will explain how the hood EXTRACTION scoop assists in diffusion cooling...

Adding more air

And post #8 here...

grill inserts

Finally, post #56 dive's deeper into the "Hood Scoop" issue..

full exhaust and 93oct tune results

Cheers!

That is great info Psycho, good read thanks!

I was wondering too.. WHY would Mopar make that CAI with that fugly tube location and then the snorkel? I bet SRT engineers were..

I want to get a stock intake box and tube for my 06... anyone have one?

Your welcome I find Aero and hydro dynamics interesting. I learned on my 89' Kawisaki ZX10 how much a small thing(s) like a rear view mirror poking out into the wind can slow you down. As I started to learn to ride at sustained high speeds (over 150) on Wisconsin country roads, I'd observe my mirrors being push in towards the faring above 120. So I'd pull em' in before the run to gain speed. A few mods later and my ride was as fast as my friend (who owned the Kawi dealership) who rode a new ZX11. He was shocked!! Aero mods (cheap) and a pipe/jetting and we were even

Check out this cool read and think about our unique trucks and all the "little" things add up to a Hippopotamus that knows how to run AND Dance....

Aerodynamic Tips and Tricks You Can Use for Better Performance - Hot Rod Network

Re; the MOPER CAI kit??? The ONLY possible reason I can come up with is to utilize the the draw from the hood scoop to evacuate air from the sectioned off filter area. So cool, outside air is fed into the fender from the grill block off scoop and then drawn into the large isolation chamber that the tube and filter are setting in. Kind of a "flow through" design once under way.

Cheers!
