Here kitty kitty! JLT HELLCAT Cold Air Intake (2015-2021 6.2L Charger/Challenger)
15-20 RWHP and No Tune Required!
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 2017-2019 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
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
- Incorporates fresh air inlet from the grill.
- 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
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!
We wanted to do as much testing as possible, so we sent kits to some of the best in the Hellcat business.
Lidio from Alternative Auto did some testing for us with his personal Hellcat and this is what he posted on his Facebook page:
"Before the season ended for us here in MI -- we got the car out in
some good and much cooler Fall air, (mid 40*s) and tested out the JLT
unit and also benefit from some much cooler air. The results have turned
out great so far. We ran numerous 9.7’s at over 142mph and then our
very best was a 9.68 @ over 143mph… which we backed up with a duplicate
run. We believe the JLT was responsible for most of these gains in MPH
and ET since our previous best of 9.77 at just over 140mph. The traction
was great, but could have been better, so I’m continuing to not “slam”
the throttle off the starting line with only about a 1300rpm brake
torque. 60-foots were in the low 1.4’s and could have been in the very
high 1.3s with a little more traction and pushing the car harder on the
hole-shot.These numbers were achieved with a full weight car and no
front runners. All shifts have been at or just over 7000rpm for the
entire 2017 season!
With no trouble at all."
"The Hellcat JLT airbox kit showed impressive gains on both the
Chassis Dyno, and most importantly in the real world! We expected no
less from the guys at JLT! Great fit & finish as usual from his
products. The new JLT kit for hellcats is now included in our entry
level performance package for the 2015+ Hellcat models.
This kit is 50 state legal. CARB E.O. No. D-761-5
