I've been looking for an SRT-10 style hood, like the Viper hoods with the scoop and louvers. I've read around that the louvers allow water to leak into the engine bay and that's not so good. So does anyone know where I can find that style hood with functional scoop but not louvers?


ps. i know they make one for magnums, has anyone custom fit a magnum hood to a charger?

It does let a lot of water in the engine area but it's also on a car that you would never take out on a bad day. I agree with Paladin though it would look tight but I think our front end just might be too short to pull off that many grille vents, unless modified. As to whether or not they have one for a Charger, I have yet to see one.

Edit I just looked up the Magnum hood OP was referring to, that would look tight on our cars!

There was a member selling one of these for the chargers a few month back, it was orange, and the hood was fiberglass. Looks good but you would have to block off those vents somehow to keep it on your car all year round. Seems like alot of work, but deffinately a sick hood!

MJCOR, yes multiple people have those rims. They're commonly referred to as Viper Replicas from Factory Reproductions as you said. They're made for Magnums, chargers, and 300s so yes they will fit. I'm not sure about the 22" staggered but 20x9 all around or 20x9 and 20x10 will fit from what I've read

That actually looks pretty cool. Doesn't fit in with my retro style, but for a modern look, I like it!

Just don't use the ones they show on that site...they look cheesy. You know, I may be dating myself here, but that Viper hood reminds me of that movie Corvette Summer. Anyone remember it? lol

That hood would be sick bro! And those wheels would fit the charger in 22's even 24's but they don't come in 24's but they could.

the street scene hood has the slots in the side of them, and i think a functional scoop too, but i heard they stopped making them.

I remember that movie....Luke really went to the dark side for that cinema trash!

Anywho,....I LOVE the mock up of the SRT 10 hood. I'd buy one in a second, since my car only comes out of the garage on nice days, anyway. Somebody needs to make these!

They do still have the hood. I like it but it'd still want deeper and bigger slots. Thanks for the heads up tho!
