SRT Intake shield measurements

Hey everyone,

I know this is a big ask but for anyone that has an srt intake, could I possibly get measurements of the air shield that holds the pipe in place.

I got into a an accident, and the damn body shop threw away the air directing shield. So now I'm trying to either fabricate or find someone that has an extra one, since SRT is now out of business.

Thanks a couple pictures would be helpful too.

Sounds like they have an obligation to make this right! Good luck.

Yeah I wasn't too worried at first thinking getting a replacement would be easy but then found out they're out of business

If you have a little time. I have a template I could copy. I am getting a Friend to make one for me out of some thin stainless. Same thing happened to me.

It's not a sophisticated part. Go to Home Depot, pickup some sheet metal, buy some tools and copy the design from the internet.

You'll need shears and a riveter (unless you want to weld the intake baffle to the main plate) I would just put some 3/16" pop-rivets in it.

To bend the metal without a Brake, clamp it to a sharp table edge with some wood clamped over it. Pick up some clamping vise grips if you need those too.

In any case; with pics, a template and/or precise measurements you'll need some specific tools if you want to fab it on your own.

Thanks for your valued input. But..... "Copy the design off the Internet" is exactly what im doing right now. Which is the topic of my thread. And I had planned on falling it myself, but since solar01 mentioned he was getting one made too, then I might as well too.

My bad. I thought the topic was looking for measurements to fab your own. Sounded like you were trying to "fabricate or find someone that has an extra one".

Basically, you could speed up the process by replicating the design yourself or wait on a fourth party to do the exact same thing. Didn't realize you're just looking for a direct replacement.

Since you are making one, make sure you get some hose (1/4 inch ID I think) for the hole that supports the intake. It will help keep the shield from scratching up the intake.

Here's a pic I found if you're not sure what I'm talking about.

Yeah, because of the customer service. Or lack thereof.

Wow that's crazy! Their intakes are still holding their value apparently though. Selling mine for $300 this week.

I have been told that running the ram air directly into the path of the air filter will cause stalling upon deceleration at highway speeds and that is why SRT used the blocking plate to slow the massive air flow down a bit. Just what i have heard. For what it's worth.

Yes, I have seen it happen on a IS300. Proved it was the Check light cause. By using duck tape over the opening.
