I was looking around and couldn't really find a straight answer on whether hood scoops would replace your air intake system. Im not doing anything at the moment, but I am just curious about maybe in the future putting scoops on my charger. I was also wondering if I did, if I could get blower style scoops for my car. I have a 2008 R/T AWD
Thank you

Most are for looks. The SRT scoops force air over the exhaust manifolds to keep the bay cooler. No scoop will give you forced air until you hit 140mph

99.9% of the scoops out there will not connect to the intake in any way

Only the ones labelled "ram air" usually connect in some way

As mentioned the OEM srt8 hood does have ducting to direct air to the motor which you can see here, my airaid CAI has the add on scoop to direct air to the filter

You won't be able to use just a Ram air scoop unless you want to cut holes in your hood, people here are mostly talking about complete replacement hoods

Would a ram air scoop connect to the intake, or simply allow air under the hood?
all hoods made for these cars with anykind of "scoop" just direct air towards the area of the filter. you will not find scoops that are fully connected to the air intake that i have ever seen
