04-08 Chrysler Crossfire Limited & Base Dual Cold Air Intake System replaces the factory intake system completely all the way from the air filters to the throttle body including a new MAF sensor housing. This system is overkill for the n/a motors in our opinion but you guys asked for it!
As with our SRT6 version, we needed to transition the driver’s side radiator pass thru from 3" to a 2.75” section to keep everything safe without pressing against or possibly damaging the radiator vent port. This is the cause of the extra set of hose clamps that will be seen under the hood. The transition to/from 3” to 2.75” is very subtle and with a nice radius so it isn’t very restrictive especially with the Teflon velocity coating there. We had to do the neck-down, sorry, I know we lose the “perfect” symmetry but we got very close. We build products with a “no new holes” approach; no OEM parts are harmed for this to be installed and this kit is completely reversible if ever needed.
The OEM power steering cooling line is in the way for the driver’s side filter. That line needs to be replaced with our new line kit which is included.
The Teflon Velocity Flow Finish is a low friction fluoropolymer coating designed to increase airflow velocity in components where air speed is an important performance factor. The fluoropolymer finish is a blend of high performance resins and fluoropolymer lubricants. Small imperfections in an uncoated surface (raw aluminum tubing) cause a roiling eddy of turbulent air currents to persist and move in all directions as they are pushed along the duct when air flows over the surface at high speeds. The greater the turbulence, the greater the energy required to move the air or fluid. The Velocity Flow Finish smoothes the surface and reduces the friction that drains energy from the flowing air. As a result, turbulence is significantly reduced and the system gains air flow efficiency, which translates to greater power. This coating can be used on a variety of components including cold air intakes, turbo and blower compressors, cylinder head ports, intake manifolds, intercoolers, intercooler tubing, hood scoops, carburetors and throttle bodies.
Flow increases in the 8-10% range have been seen on the flow bench with this coating!
This coating is safe with nitrous, water, and methanol. The Teflon will not flake off. As an added benefit of the Teflon Velocity Coating is that it can be tinted a large range of color’s which in turn eliminates the need for powder coating. Popular colors include Silver, Grey, Black, red, Yellow, Green or Blue Teflon Velocity coatings. Please specify your color preference in the special instructions section at checkout. Coating is done per order so please expect a 5-10 business day lead time for the coating to be completed before the kit will ship.
This system has picked up an additional 128cfm above our single CAI system (also Teflon Coated) on the flow bench at a very conservative flow rate @ 15in/h20. This Dual Cold Air Intake System will outflow the flow bench at high vacuum!
Install should take one and a half hours, most of that will be removing the factory components and installing the powersteering cooling line replacement included in this kit.
A valve cover breather hose is also included to be routed into our intake (same emmisions setup as factory). Everything is included except for the chance that you may need more powersteering line fluid if you spill a lot during the p/s line swap. We include rubber caps to aid in the swap to plug the lines. If you use them and don’t excessively spill the fluid out you can get the still clean fluid out of the old line to refill the reservoir. If you do spill too much fluid durring the install, the bottle of Pentosin CHF11-S is $20-25 at a local Dodge parts counter (or $40 is you go to a Mercedes parts counter). DO NOT USE standard powersteering fluid or it may damage the powersteering pump.
This product carries our three year warranty against manufacturer defects and is sold for off road use only as we have not had it CARB certified. Although it is not shown below, the OEM and aftermarket grill do go back on without any problems.
The black mercedes engine cover shown in the pictures below is not included with this kit. It is available separatly HERE.
