Nothing. Wait for mopar's. At the beginning of the year. If you have enough money, you should experiment with it (K&N, Airaid) and then tell me about the results.

Good one. I already did my "benefit to Jeep owners" experiment with the BWoody intake.

Re: Airaid air intake

I have a slightly different take on the aftermarket shops, in that I am willing to take the first mover risk of trying new products so these businesses continue to produce product for our collective benefit. Sure, it can get expensive sampling everything, but you gotta pick your priorities.

Bwoody is a great example. I understood what a short ram intake was before purchase, and in my case the engine compartment temps aren't as big of an issue given our local climate. I'm a fan of the intake and the links and will continue to support Bwoody as they do the Jeep family.

Meanwhile, like Hasan, I'm scrounging around looking for venting ideas to help mitigate the engine compartment temp issue and hoping the Black Ops will get us a WK2 hood soon. I'm also down with trying the K&N, Air Raid, and Mopar when and if it gets issued.

Also waiting patiently for the Tuner's to crack open the safe.

Carry on.

I'm not sure whether Mopar will come up with any better stuff. I've been waiting for Mopar's for several months and they've been delaying the relase date again and again..... I can't wait until Jan. I already have a K&N drop-in and so far, Airaid's looks better than K&N77.

Torque under 3K RPM is the big one that jumps out.

Go with Airaid's and FRP throttle body. I'm sure Ryan's TB can solve the problem of a small dip between 3600/4000 rpm. I have no Jeep yet, but if I had it, I would have gone this way.

Re: Airaid air intake

I got an email from Airaid regarding not having a tube for V6 CAI and they said they didn't get real additional increases in performance or fuel efficiency by adding a tube to their system.

Re: Airaid air intake

Before we get out of control with the torque thing we must remember that an air intake is not designed to work fully on its own. It is meant to be coupled with a high flow exhaust and computer tune for Max performance.

I know that there is no computer tune for the jeep but maybe coupled with the 3.6 Magnaflow exhaust it will increase power even more and get rid of that torque loss at midrange?

I totaly revamped my 1998 Explorer Sport V6 and it did not come all together until I had all three components working for me. With an intake, exhaust, larger throttle body, larger mass air sensor and custom tune I was able to get 50 more hp to the wheels over stock. The air intake was my first mod and all it basically did was increase throttle response and gain about 5hp. Though from my perspective that would be worth it for my Jeep 3.6

Though maybe the jeep engine could be different, recently read where Road and Track swapped out an intake on a Mazda 3 speed and got 27 more hp over stock just from the intake alone?

To me CAI is a good option of adding little bit of extra HP while not worrying about warranty issue.
