Ok i am a moron but i know this ...you may not so let me show you. I heard that the stock SRT-4 hood can be cut in conjuntion with the air box to produce a ram air effect at speed. I have searched this site from top to bottom and i can't find it. I also heard that PVO is the one who told the site about this?? Please take a second to laugh at the moron then answer with a quick joke and the answer? Thanks :jester:

i have my doubts that it will work, you will probably have better luck buying an intake or doing the airbox mod (cutting out the bottom)

you will need to cut out 2 4 inch holes and get some sort of flashing/moulding.

Cut a hole on top of the stock airbox, and place the rubber moulding around the outside of the hole (like the big seal on a refrigerator). Lower the hood so you can see the area directly above the hole you cut. If you follow the scoop on top of the hood, you will see that it dumps on top of the turbo, and has an arm that goes toward the right, on top of the airbox. Cut a hole through the air channels on the bottom of the hood directly above the hole on the airbox and place the moulding on the edges of this too.

When you close the hood completly, the 2 mouldings/seals should line up and make a seal, thus providing ram air for your airbox.

I'm not sure how well this works as most of the air coming in through the scoop will dump onto the turbo, but you will get a bit of nice fresh cold air to the airbox. It also looks pretty cool; it provides a nice peephole to your filter to check how dirty it is.

These instructions seem pretty vague, but im tired. If there is something you dont understand, just ask, and ill try and explain better. Pictures might be nice too.

Without cutting the top of the airbox and hood, you will not the the ram air effect. It's better than CAI as the air is being forced into the box. The CAI does not do that unless you have an attachment to pickup the air from the lower bumper.

if u already haven’t installed a new intake for your srt-4 a free and easy as long as u have a dremel with a diamond cutting blade, wrench and some tape preferably painters tape. Now take the wrench and take the top part of the air box and put the screws back or if u want remove the hole air box its really not needed and adds a but load of un needed weight. After that look at the bottom of your hood and you will see a bubble with a hole that has been drilled or punched in to it that would sit above your air box look at the picture for a reference. The yellow line is where you need to cut. (Look at picture 2 for reference). Now cover the lower part that it’s not being cut with tape so if u put the dremel at to low of an angle you might screw up the paint the tape protects that. Now cut above the tape and remove the peace of metal. That is directly linked with the vent that’s on the front of the hood and your done. The air vent will help vent cool air to the front part the engine bay. The air vent is originally open on the rally srt-4 but for some reason was closed when the srt-4 when in to production.
