In the late 1960's, the Chrysler Corporation debuted its iconic Dodge Challenger. The Challenger was appropriately named as it was released to challenge the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang in the then new muscle-car class.

Fast-forward to the present day and the Dodge Challenger is in its third generation. The current Challenger model was designed in 2008 as a remake of the original with a twist of vintage styling and modern technology.

AEM has just released a cold air intake for 2009 and 2010 Dodge Challenger and Charger models with 3.5-liter SOHC V6 engines.  AEM parts 21-696P (Polished) and 21-696C (Grey) are two-piece aluminum induction systems that feature a large, molded rubber elbow coupler and massive 7-inch tall DRYFLOW performance cone shaped air filter.

These 3.5-liter V6 engines are relatively underpowered in relation to engines in other muscle cars. With only 250 horsepower from the factory, AEM engineers looked to not only improve peak power gains with the 21-696P or 21-696C Cold Air Intake but to improve low-to-midrange power production as well.

During AEM testing a Dodge Challenger realized a 7.36 horsepower improvement at 3800 RPM with the AEM cold air intake installed. Peak horsepower was also improved, going from 174.52 in stock trim to 177.43 horsepower. A substantial addition in torque was also recorded during AEM's testing, with a maximum gain of 10.63 ft/lb at just 3500 RPM with the intake installed.

The 21-696P and 21-696C Cold Air Intake systems come 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 3.5-liter V6 engines of the Dodge Challenger and Charger. The DRYFLOW air filter media creates a filter that is extremely durable, easily cleaned and delivers excellent filtration. For added filtration, AEM offers Filter Wraps that are manufactured from durable micro-screen materials that are pretreated with a proprietary hydrophobic process. AEM filter wraps repel water splashes and extend the filters service life. For the 21-696P and 21-696C air intake systems, AEM Filter Wraps are available as a separate accessory (Part Number: 1-4007).
