Re: cai

there are more intake options if your budget is available for it. but I would definitely put the air-raid at the bottom of the list.

Re: cai

I have had zero codes from it, I think it looks amazing and sounds even better.. also the constructions is very well made. the only issue people have had with the AFE intake that I have, is that there is some rubbing against the hood insulation "not the metal", but all you have to do is turn the tube downward during installation and that wont be a problem.

Now that I think of it, I haven't had a check engine light at all this entire time I have owned the truck thankfully. "knock on wood"

because In my opinion the airraid one of is the worst aftermarket intakes available for our trucks... here compare the two yourself,

Cold Air Intake System Stage-2 Magnum FORCE Intake System; Stage 2 Pro 5R; Jeep Grand Cherokee; 11-14 V8-5.7L 54-12242 - aFe Power

Your warranty will be voided if an aftermarket intake is proven to have caused an engine problem.

Just sayin

partially true.

Any damages specfically causes by the air intake MAY NOT be covered by warranty. "Voided" is a really bad word to use.

example, if your MAF goes bad because an "oiled" air filter somehow leaks/sprays/releases a mist of oil that gums up the sensor, the dealer has the option to not cover the MAF because of it.

It will in no way "void" any other part of the warranty, for your transmission, or electrical system.. etc.

It's the same as the dealer telling you your aftermarket speakers caused your tire pressure system to fail.

Any way you slice it, if it comes up, have the dealer "put it in writing, that your warranty doesnt cover the problem, and to write specifics on what the problem was, and how your aftermarket piece effected it"


99 times out of 100, the dealer will fix it, under warranty, and tell you "its a courtesy" and that if it happens again, they wont cover it. (more BS from them, because the Law states they have to cover it, unless they can prove what caused the damage... like if you put new 55 watt halogen bulbs in and your light socket melts... THAT they can prove)

In this case it would be pretty hard for a CAI to cause any engine damage... your only changing the air flow temp, and possibly the CFM.

If they tell you the 10HP gained @ 5000 RPM (from the K&N filter) causes your differential to break.. they are straight up full of shit. 10hp (at 190 stock Hp) is well withing the tolerance of HP gain or increase of pretty much any vehicle that isnt a race car putting out 500+hp.

Re: cai

I have run the K&N and Airaid both on 3.6L and in my opinion the Airaid is a better kit. The fit and finish seemed better quality. You will not get any MPGs from a CAI. CAI kits actually draw in warmer air than the stock airbox, so the name is a misnomer. Also, the more air you put in the more fuel the ECU will put in to maintain a proper stoi ratio. So you're not going to feel the 7 horsepower increase you get and you also won't get better fuel economy. The only reason to do a CAI is for better sound and longer lasting filter element.
