AIRAID (350-318): Cold Air Dam Intake for 2011-2015 Dodge Charger 5.7L

AIRAID’s 350-318 cold air dam (CAD) air intakes for the 2011-2015 Dodge Charger 5.7L are engineered to give your engine larger amounts of cooler air to produce more horsepower and torque. The intake system retains the original location of the air filter but delivers a big boost with the addition of a huge open-element air inlet protected by CAD panels that help to provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your engine. The panels mount in the factory air box location and use any factory cold air inlet ducts that are present, while adding additional cold air passages to the filter. The panels also keep the filter isolated from the hot engine compartment by sealing to the underside of the hood via blade-style weather stripping. Some CAD systems connect to the factory air intake tube while others use a replacement low-restriction intake tube. The 360-degree conical AIRAID premium air filter is washable and reusable, less restrictive than traditional paper, and provides superior filtration. This CAD air intake is easy to install with common hand tools and is backed by AIRAID’s exclusive No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty.
