2016 3.6L Pentastar Cold Air Intake?

So i finally got my 2016 JGC with the new upgraded 3.6L Pentastar. Coming from my 09 AWD Hemi Charger, I know the improvement in acceleration a Cold Air Intake can make. Since this is a new setup for 2016 and the only application so far, i was curious if anyone knows of one available for it yet or if one is in the works by FCA?

An intake won't help with acceleration at all, see if AEM makes a dryflow drop in filter for the 16's (not sure
If the filter actually changed at all may be the same as 11-15)

2016 3.6L Pentastar Cold Air Intake?

Not this car but every single car I've owned previously (13 cars so far) I've had aftermarket CAI intakes on they did nothing but add noise. I spent 5k on a Dinan carbon fiber intake system for my V10 m5 and it did jack shit lol except look cool and sound throaty
even with a tune.

Drive one with an aem dryflow drop in or a CAI intake, I'd bet the one with the dryflow drop in drives better and gets better MPG for 45 bucks instead of 250-300. I know I'm up 2-3 mpg with my aem drop in on my jeep it has definitely made a difference.

There's really nothing left to squeeze out of NA cars these days they make the motors very efficient at producing power from the factory.

Re: 2016 3.6L Pentastar Cold Air Intake?

"Imprezzie" is correct even the drop in filters do make a noticeble difference especially in the the lower end of the rpm range.
" cold air intake" is a misnomer if it is not pulling cooler air from outside the engine bay.

I have an aFe Power Momentum GT intake on my 2012 3.6 and I will say this on a stretch of road from light to light prior to the momentum I have never been able to do better than 78 mph on the stretch.

Since the installation of the momentum intake i have been able to acheive speeds up 83 mph. Truth be told the truck does not feel any faster but the MPH show improvement.


On another road I could do better than 81, the last time I tried a run on that Road I was at 89 and I had to get on the brakes a whole lot harder. These are roads I have been messing around on and have seen constant results.

So a perfomance intake does make a difference, is the induction noise a good trade off is the price a good trade off. You be the judge.

Re: 2016 3.6L Pentastar Cold Air Intake?

I would just get an aem dryflow drop in filter and call it a day just for the MPG gains alone it's worth the 45 bucks for the lifetime filter. I'm up 2mpg average.

Performance is negligible no matter what but paying 300 bucks for an intake that will typically do nothing or make you lose power is just plain dumb.
