Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

I installed my Airaid yesterday and it took me all of 20 minutes with a flat head and phillips head screwdriver, a 4mm allen and a socket wrench (forget size, sorry). Super easy install.

Thanks to 2String1 for the item!!

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

Hi all. Silly question, how do you clean these cone filters? Used K&N square shape filter before on another car and had to be oiled after cleaning with K&N cleaning kit.

Nice job, but $185? Looks like about $12 worth of stuff made in China.

Re: Installed an Airaid Cold Air Intake

Kind of odd that it would block the opening that allows colder air in when the car is moving, don't you think?

Are you talking about the rubber "diverter" strip I removed from the driver's side of the hood? IMO Jeep put it there to stop sand/dirt/water from making it into the stock airbox. But since the Airaid CAI is of a different "open" design, I felt that the stock rubber strip on the hood was no longer needed...so I removed it. To this day I've not seen the air filter itself get wet after doing this, and I've driven in some strong downpours.

Nope, I'm talking about the opening. It's blocked.
If I recall correctly the foam "diverter" was added after the first year of the WK2

Oh...we are talking about two different things, and that foam piece was also on my early build 2014 Limited (4/13).

The "foam" diverter you're talking about that partially blocks the opening of the stock snorkle...which IMO is not the issue when it comes to the blocking of colder outside air...it's the rubber strip on the driver's side hood that blocked the most cold air from getting to the air filter coming from between the headlight assembly and the hood). That's why I removed the rubber strip on the hood, but left the foam diverter.

Sorry I think we are talking about the same thing. I just mentioned the diverter piece because I remember that being an issue after first year.
What I don't understand is why the would put the "wall" of the intake box in front of (blocking the cold air while moving) instead of the left side of the opening so it would send that air to the filter. Maybe that unit gets its outside air from somewhere else?
This is what K&N does (I don't think it is perfect either)
