I've seen plenty of those on older models, they look cool if your off road, definitely not on a wk2- However, would be interesting to see someone try!! Ha-ha..

Re: air intake recommendation

I personally would not like the look of a snorkel on a WK2, but prefer it on the JK. It does look bada$$ on the new JK's.

Not true, especially after the tune we will be able to use from Diablo Sport. I like the Mopar and it is an oiless filter.

I have had the k&n. and the afe dry filter stage 2 and i really like the afe.
When i have the data logger hooked up. The temp is 1-2 warmer the the outside temp. I believe this may be do to the design of the afe's heat shield.

As far as performance, i can say that both of ours(4.7, 5.7) seem to run smoother( idle wise) and have more go. This also happened to my 4.0 in both the yj and lj.

There is another part to this as well and that is a larger exhaust. More air in=more air out

Dont these seal against the hood keeping the heat out? And have the "intake" down low where the stocker breathes in?
They claim 19hp 20tq increase.
LOL only had my 2012 HEMI 2 days and want to mod it-BUT the stocker with its HUGE chambers seems like it would breath pretty well too!

Re: air intake recommendation

Did I see a post that when removing the stock air box it became unusable?

My stock airbox was completely usable after I removed it. The only thing you would have to put back on is one little rubber grommet from the bottom of the filter box (as far as the Volant was concerned).

Re: air intake recommendation

I got the ECU Flash too-noticeable difference.
BUT the SM says ANY CAI will void the warranty. I say BS and want to figure out how to call their bluff!
Whether some think they work or not I want one.

Re: air intake recommendation

Another vote for Volant here. I ran the Volant cold air intake on my '08 JK. Loved it. High quality piece. The volant has a box surrounding the filter with an open slot on the side of the box away from the engine, and a lid that goes on top of the box, to keep out the engine heat. I data logged the PIDs on my JK with the Diablosport Predator and my laptop after installing the Volant intake to get rid of the "hot air" argument may had on another forum. My IAT temps were unchanged. They were actually almost 2 deg cooler, but that could've been from a few variables, not enough difference to call it cold air. Granted a lifted JK has more air flowing through the engine bay from underneath, because of the removal of the air damn, and higher suspension with a 3" lift. But mine did not suck any hot air. Now the intakes like the AEM and a few others that have a 100% exposed open air filter, sure, that thing is sucking hot air for sure.

Here is my Volant intake on my JK. Mostly covered, with a slot for air intake.





Is the Volant intake for the WK2 a similar design? Or did they change it?
