I called them because I needed some help with the air sensor and the guy I spoke to had about the same product knowledge as my cat. they also shorted me a clamp so now im using a half ass clamp from advance auto parts. maybe with an exhaust and a tune the intake will be better utilized.
X2, don't listen to the manufcturers marketing BS, a CAI for the Jeep 5.7 is a total waste of money. I removed mine (AFE II) after a year and found it actually drove worse than stock with a loss of torque and poorer tip in throttle response, plus that awful noise gets old real quick. The restriction with the Jeep 5.7 s the exhaust manifold, not the intake.
