Form Meets Function
We don't often share what goes on in the shop on a day to day basis, and have generally posted products only when they are fully developed. Today we wanted to peel back the curtain a little bit and begin talking about products that we are currently developing in-house.
Thanks to customer Michael L. for loaning us his car for a few days to complete the Research and Development necessary to produce a quality Cold Air Intake Kit for the 2011 to 2014 Dodge Avenger 3.6L Pentastar. We will be working on testing fitment on other platforms here in the near future after development to see if these also fit the first generation Chrysler 200 or possibly others.
We start off by mocking up the design for where the intake will eventually go, and then produce the first protoype for testing. We decided that a 180 degree mandrel bend was going to yield us the best performance possible in the space that we had available. Ultimately we plan to make 2 versions of this kit: One that will connect to the stock air box, and one that will have its own K&N style conical air filter.
The final product will not only flow more freely than the stock baffled and resonated intake tubing, but it will also come custom painted in your choice of factory colors, or the standard wrinkle black hi-temp coating. This can ultimately be a performance part that is also a show piece worth popping the hood to show off. We believe that our parts not only have to look good, but they have to serve a purpose too.
The RPM-Motorsports Cold Air Intake Kit for the 3.6L Dodge Avenger will not require a custom tune, but you will see more performance gains when installed in combination with our Stage 1 Tune.
