Add 24 Horsepower to Your Dodge Challenger with AEM’s Newest Brute Force Air Intake


Many consider the mid to late 1960′s the beginning of the muscle car era. In 1964, the Ford Motor Company released its Ford Mustang. The Mustang is still coined the originator of the “Pony Car” class of American automobiles. The Mustang however would not be the only offering in this popular class as General Motors quickly reacted by debuting their Chevrolet Camaro for the 1967 model year. In response to the Mustang and Camaro, the Chrysler Corporation followed suit by introducing the Dodge Challenger. With muscle cars available from each of the Big Three, the rest is history.

In 2008, Chrysler presented a remake of their vintage Dodge Challenger with a retro model. The 2008 Dodge Challenger features modern technology wrapped by old-school looks. The revised Challenger was so well received that Dodge continued to offer the vehicle for the 2009 model year. Muscle car enthusiasts weren’t the only ones to take notice of the retro Dodge, AEM’s air intake system engineers were also eager to get their hands on the new Challenger.

After investing much research and development into the new Challenger, AEM proudly introduces a Brute Force Air Intake System for the 2009 Dodge Challenger with the 5.7 and 6.1-liter V8 engines (Part Number 21-8223DC). The 21-8223DC is a full cold-air intake system that incorporates a two-piece design to bring in cool air from a 3.5×7-inch DRYFLOW air filter (Part Number 21-2147DK).

The modern 5.7 and 6.1-liter V8 engines offered by Dodge in their 2009 Challengers are outfitted with the latest technology to generate big power. AEM also implements the latest in air intake system technology and engineering with the 21-8223DC Brute Force intake system. As a result, the 2009 Dodge Challenger with 6.1-liter engine benefits from a massive maximum gain of 24 horsepower with the Brute Force air intake system installed. This jump in power output brings the Challenger’s peak power up from 302 horsepower to 325 horsepower!

The 21-8223DC Brute Force air intake system comes with a large oil-free DRYFLOW performance air filter (21-2147DK). The 21-2147DK has a flange inside diameter of 3.5-inches (89mm) and a height of 7-inches (178mm), allowing the delivery of a plentiful amount of airflow to the 5.7 and 6.1-liter V8 engines of the Dodge Challenger. The DRYFLOW air filter media creates a filter that is extremely durable, easily cleaned and delivers excellent filtration.
