Challenger Hellcat Gets an aFe POWER Momentum Intake
This entry was posted on March 30, 2015.
aFe POWER (advanced FLOW engineering) is excited to announce the new Momentum Series of Sealed Air Intake Systems for the LX platform, beginning with the Challenger Hellcat.
We have finalized our testing, and will be sending this to production shortly, and these intakes will be available soon. This same sealed housing (with integration to the factory ram-air setup, more on that below) will work across multiple engine options in the LX family, so look for more applications soon.
Let's get to the fun!

The aFe Momentum Intake System is built to maximize airflow, and utilizes a massive air filter designed specifically for this intake. By outflowing the factory intake and improving efficiency, gains of +37HP and +33lbs x ft of torque are realized at the rear wheels with just this upgrade. (Dyno sheet below)
That takes the maximum power from 665.78HP to 701.67HP!
Quick Data Points:
• Improved Horsepower & Torque - Improved Throttle Response • Sealed Intake Design - Roto-molded Tube w/Premium Hardware • Massive Cone Air Filter - Choice of Cleanable/Reuseable Oiled or Dry Filter Media • One-Piece Sealed Housing w/Clear Sight Window • Direct Bolt-On - No Cutting or Drilling - 30 Minute Install - Utilizes Factory Ram Air • No Tuning Needed
For those not immediately familiar with aFe POWER, and our Intake Development process; All design and engineering comes from our 165,000 sq. ft. facilities in Southern California. We utilize the latest in technology, 3D scanning, 3D printing, CAD design software, and have an in-house AWD Dynojet Dynamometer.
We scanned the Challenger engine bay, analyzing the stock intact tract, and designed a new intake system that outflows the stock setup. Once the initial design was completed, we were able to "print" plastic prototype parts from our 3D printers, and construct the complete prototype and install on the vehicle. (Those of you that attended the Spring Festival of LX's this year saw the prototype installed.) From there we were able to test the vehicle on the dyno. Through rigorous testing, such as monitoring performance and ECU parameters in real-time, we were able to tweak and make any changes that were necessary.
Once R&D is complete, we move to manufacturing of the intake itself, creating the intake molds from CNC machines, and production begins. Premium hardware is used on the kit, including stainless steel T-Bolt clamps and Momentum intakes are designed with fewer parts, which allows this intake to be installed in 30 minutes for most.
Installation for the housing mounts the kit directly into the factory location on the fender well, ensuring the coolest air possible is being captured from the factory ram air intake inlet. A large clear sight window is built into the housing for easy filter inspection without removal of the air box. The largest filter possible was used and is available in two different filter media options: Pro 5R is an oiled filter media for maximum airflow, while the Pro DRY S "oil-less" filter media provides maximum filtration.
(For those with other applications and engines - This housing will work with several other vehicles, we'll be developing those right after this launch)
