Jake: Jake here for American Muscle. And today, I've got this AFE Super Stock Induction System with the Pro 5R Oiled Filter for 2015 and newer Challengers, excluding the R/T Scat Pack. Now, this super stock system from aFe is gonna appeal to you if you're looking for a way to increase the airflow from your stock intake with a simple mod, all while keeping it very budget-friendly. This is an easy bolt-in modification that focuses on efficiency, cost, and integration.So if that sounds like it's your speed, then stick with me as we check this out. But before we get too deep in, I do wanna clarify that this is designed to fit most Challengers with the exception of R/T Scat Pack models, and those that utilize that really cool Rhombi illuminated air catcher headlamp. Those require a different part, and we do have that one available on our site.Now, changing of your intake usually means that you're gonna have to spend several hundred dollars on a whole system that's very obviously not stock. It's gonna require some time and maybe even some additional modifications like a tune to get it installed and working properly. However, aFe came up with something rather clever here because this kit uses the majority of your stock intake. So as you probably already noticed, this doesn't have a big intake tube or even a lid for the filter box, and that's because you reuse those pieces with this system. So your stock pieces are reutilized here. So this is effectively just the lower portion of the intake box.Now, at this point, you might be asking why you wanna do that or what the point of it even is. So the lower portion of the box here also includes this, which aFe calls the Dynamic Air Scoop. So this is gonna direct cooler ambient air right through the intake box and up through the filter. You also have another intake at the bottom of the box, too. So all that means is you're gonna get cooler air and you're gonna get more cooler air through here.Now, cooler air is more dense, denser air makes for better combustion, and better combustion means more power and efficiency. So this whole thing is gonna allow more air to come through, and it's also gonna keep your intake temperatures lower than the stock box. So part of that added airflow is due to the Pro 5R filter that's included in the kit. Now, this is an oil filter, and as such, it is also reusable. So this is a 5-Layer Cotton Gauze Media, and it's aFe's highest flowing filter.So again, you're gonna get more air through this filter. And since it's an oiled design, you get the added benefit of having that additional layer of protection against dirt and particulates. So you've got these deep pleats in here, and the oil on the surface is nice and sticky. So all that means it's gonna help filter out some of even the smallest particulates that might slip through a dry filter otherwise.And the best part again is it's reusable. So you just wash it, re-oil it, pop it right back into place, and you're ready to go. Oil filters like this have a pretty long lifespan, especially if they're cared for. So it is gonna cut down on the replacement cost. You just need to make sure you clean it every so often.Now, I mentioned earlier that this is very budget-friendly and that's not really an exaggeration at all. Coming in around $225, this is pretty inexpensive as far as intakes go. Since you're only replacing part of the system and the filter, you don't have to spend a lot here. But it is gonna make a difference in how your challenger drives, and it's gonna keep everything looking stock and functioning much like stock with some added benefits like those lower intake temperatures and the added airflow.Now, as far as installation goes, this is gonna get a one-out-of-three on a difficulty meter and should only take you about 15 minutes or so to get it installed. It's really not much more complicated than replacing the air filter. Just pop off the lid, swap out the lower portion of the filter box, make sure this guy's aimed properly, and you're ready to go. It's definitely a job you can accomplish at home with some common hand tools. And to show you just how to get it done, let's head to the install bay right now.James: So the tools I'll be using today are a small socket with a 5/16 bit and a Flathead screwdriver. And that's all you should be needing today for this installation. Hello, my name is James, and we're gonna be installing a Hellcat air box in this V6 Challenger. Now, first, we're gonna start off by taking off this black piece right here. And you pop that little thing out right there. And here you go, like so. And then right over here, there's these plastic screws that are...well, not screws, but are popped into here.There you go, like so. We'll put this to the side. And then we're gonna have a 5/16th wrench, and we're gonna take this off. Okay, there we go. We'll hold onto this. And then we're gonna go ahead and use our screwdriver and take off this clamp that's holding the hose to the air box. We're just loosening it and it should pop right out. You just give it a little twist. Loosen it a little bit more. There we go. That pops off of there.Now, we're gonna go ahead and take our wrench. You could either use a flathead screwdriver or the 5/16th wrench to take out these little sockets right here. We're gonna use our wrench. Now, make sure you put these screws someplace safe. I'm putting them in my pocket. Then we're gonna go ahead right here and unscrew these three screws that are holding in the air box. Right here, we're using a flathead screwdriver, turning it counterclockwise.Now, make sure you put these screws somewhere safe, either your pocket or some kind of pan. You can use a Phillips if you would like. I like a fly head myself. There you go. And one more, and we're gonna go ahead and remove this. Now, there's two little things that are in this plastic. You just pull them right out, pretty simple, and we could go ahead and move the top of the air box right here.And now we're gonna go ahead and take out this filter. Right now, I have a K+N filter from the stock, taking out the stock and putting a K+N. So I'm gonna put this over here to the side. And as you can see, it's a little dusty in there. And there you go, pops right out.Now you can see the difference of these air boxes. As you can see, there's more space in the aftermarket aFe Hellcat box to allow more airflow and to come in through the headlight compared to the stock. Now, we're gonna go ahead and pop off this grommet. By using a screwdriver, you could pry it a little bit. Now, it is rubber, so there you go. And we're gonna go ahead and place this. There's no certain way, it goes right on the new air box.And we're gonna have to take off this piece as well by lifting this up. It's a light metal. You could take it out, and then this rubber should go ahead and slide out. And we're gonna go ahead and now put this on our new air box like so. Make sure it's nice and snug in there, and go ahead and put this little piece back in there just by pushing it. There we go.Now, on the bottom of your stock air box, there is this foam piece and your new one doesn't come with one. So I went out and got a 3/8 weather strip seal from Walmart. And you could go ahead and cut it to your liking, place it on here, like so. And there we go.Now, on the other side of your air box, you also have another foam piece. If you have a little weather stripping, or you could cut a couple strips and you go ahead and place it right here. And there we go. Now, right here on the second headlight, here's the first, the second headlight, it should be able to be pushed out. You could actually tell by it spins a little.Now, on this one, I have three tabs. So I use my other hand, and that's why we moved our plastic piece off so I could get in there. Go ahead and pinch those tabs, like so. And you should be able to pop out your headlight, just like. And there's the tabs. Of course, you have to pinch them and just push it right out. Now, you'll have the hole right here, which the air will go through and into your air box.Now, what's suggested is you actually put in this inlet tube right here before you... It just goes right in there, right there. You know, nothing fancy. And we're gonna go ahead and put this new filter in. Let me give it a quick little dust-off. Okay. We're gonna place our grommet right here in this hole. Here's the grommet. First gotta go like that, a little sideways action right there. And there's the inlet tube right here, so you gotta get it slide in there. Takes a little messing around with. Okay. And there it is right there. It's right in there, push the grommet in. Make sure this and this, we're all good on them. And there we go.Now, we're gonna grab our air filter. Go ahead and put that in, like so. Okay. Then we're gonna grab our top of our air box. Go ahead and snap these three pieces in first. Make sure it's in there good. We're gonna go ahead and that like that. All right. Now, we're gonna go ahead and loosen this up a little bit just to make sure it slides in nice and easy. There we go. We're gonna go ahead and tighten this up. And our hose is now being connected. The flathead screwdriver, our hose is now being connected back to the air box.Taking the flathead screwdriver, go ahead and screw this all back in. We're gonna go ahead and get our screw. Start putting this one in as well. It's all screwed in there, all three screws, and we're gonna go ahead and get our 5/16th socket wrench. We're gonna go ahead and get our 5/16th socket wrench, make sure we align the hole, and go ahead and put that in now. Make sure your turn clockwise on this totighten.To loosen is counterclockwise, and to tighten is clockwise. Give it a good tighten. Go ahead and clip this back in here, here we go, and we're ready to rock and roll. And we're gonna go ahead and put this plastic piece back in, starting with these little boogers there. Fold this. We're gonna have to fold this under. Just goes like so, crush it in, make sure everything's good to go. And now we're ready to rock and roll.Jake: That's gonna wrap it up for our review and install of the AFE Super Stock Induction System with the Pro 5R Oiled Filter for 2015 and newer Dodge Challengers.
