Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

**Update**

Went on a small 120 mile highway drive yesterday (60 miles each way)...close to 90 degrees out, light traffic, sunny, two other people in the car, A/C on AUTO (67 degrees), speeds varied between 65 and 75 mph...

...the average mileage displayed on the dash at the end of the trip was 26.2 mpg. I don't remember EVER seeing an average mpg number that high BEFORE I installed this CAI on my 204 V6 4x4 Overland. I also don't remember seeing an average mpg number this high on my older 2014 V6 4x4 Limited either (aFe drop-in filter only).

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

How long do the filters last between cleanings? How many cleaning can you get from one filter?

Service intervals for the filters will vary depending on the operating conditions and the style of filter. Oiled filters can go 20-25,000 miles between cleanings with typical city driving, while dry filters typically should be serviced every 15-20,000 miles in the same conditions. On the other hand, a single off-road excursion in a really silty environment could demand a cleaning within a few hundred miles.

Because of the wide range of conditions, we offer this general rule: when you can no longer see the red (or blue) on the filter, it's time to clean it. Hope this helps!

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

Is it necessary to disconnect the battery? If yes can I just disconnect the positive under the hood? I noticed there are 2 wires going to the positive do I remove them both?

Never remove the positive before the negative. Must do the negative FIRST to safely disconnect the battery

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

Just put mine on this morning. Looks good, nice and quiet until you get on the gas.

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

After you drive it for awhile,stop and pop the hood and grab a hold of the filter. Tell me if it's cold! Then try it with the OEM filter box. You will be surprised...

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

I got my Airaid Wed hope to put it on this weekend after I get my first oil change and tire rotation. Can't wait to feel the extra punch

To be fair, I didn't really feel an increase in overall power, but I DID notice an increase in responsiveness & a slight increase in fuel economy.

Good luck with the install...I still like my Airaid CAI!
