JLT has jumped into the Hellcat intake market with both feet. We have owned a 2016 Hellcat Charger for nearly a year now and have been testing and designing this kit the entire time.
This kit includes a fully Roto Molded airbox that uses the factory fresh air (Ram Air) inlet from the grille/headlight that also seals to the hood. We feel this is the key component that puts our kit well above the rest. Not only does this box help keep inlet air temps down by blocking the filter from hot engine heat, it also helps hold in the cool air getting rammed in from the inlet creating a high pressure area around the filter.
Speaking of the filter, our filter is a custom built design made by S&B. It has a built in bell mouth for super smooth and fast air flow as well as huge 1" deep pleats for more surface area than filters that look much bigger.
The intake tube is roto molded plastic with a huge 125mm for superior airflow and NO heat soak like metal tubes.
With a mouth of 4.5" at the throttle body end, it is ready for any larger throttle bodies that may come in the future.
MAF and IAT adaptor plates
2015/16 Hellcats have a Mass Air Flow sensor and 2016/17 have an Inlet Air Temp sensor. We designed our kit to work with BOTH. Included in each kit are CNC machined aluminum plates, gasket and stainless screws to adapt to either model years.
Standard finish is textured black or NOW AVAILABLE in your cars exact body color.
All painted tubes receive a special treatment so paint adheres correctly to the plastic and go through an in-depth process to remove all the texture. We then use only the best quality materials to give each tube a smooth gloss finish.
*Please note, paint upgrade fee varies due to paint color cost. See Intake Tube Options drop down box.
NOW AVAILABLE in Hydrocarbon.
Through an awesome process called Hydrographics, the intake tube is made to look like carbon fiber. The tube is painted and then dipped in a water solution with a carbon fiber print film that adheres to the part when removed. Tube is then clear coated for a durable finish.
Includes new roto molded plastic heat shield to block engine heat at idle and low speed.
Each kit comes with custom designed and water jet cut Lexan shields that bolt to the hood grille. Not only do they keep rain from the filter, they allow the cooler rammed air to stay in the box around the filter VS just being pushed out of the grille.
It incorporates the fresh air inlet from the grill.
It uses a large area to make sure the filter has tons of cool air.

AIR FILTER OPTIONS
OIL OR DRY
We use only the best air filters made by S&B to our specifications.
For years we only used oiled filters, but dry filter technology has been proven and is now a popular option.
Should I choose a Dry Disposable or Cotton Oiled Filter?
Since you are not sacrificing performance with either choice, the decision comes down to would you rather throw away the filter or clean it.
Dry: Comparable airflow to oiled cotton filters with the same great protection.
Last for up to 30,000 miles of highway driving. Extend the life of the filter using compressed air.
Oil: Oiled filters can last forever as long as you properly clean and re-oil it.
Oil filters are available in red or blue and Dry filters are white.
RACE FILTER: The Race filter is an optional filter, this filter IS NOT FOR STREET USE! It's no filtering media, with prolonged use it will allow contaminated that can damage your engine! JLT Performance will not be responsible for any damage from use of Race filter. Customer assumes all risk!
To properly clean your oil filter, we recommend the S&B Precision II Cleaning & Oiling Kit.
*TIP* by purchasing a 2nd air filter you can simply swap filters when it's time to clean it and not be rushed. Clean the first filter and it's ready when it's time to change again.
JLT Pre-Filters are now available for most intake kits we carry, these filters are made for us by Outerwears, these prefilters are water repellent. They will increase your filter life and cut down on your cleaning intervals!
