Mopar Cold Air Intake

hey guys just wondering if anyone has installed the molar cols air intake system, i have a question. does this system change the sound at all? i like that my grand cherokee is very quiet when I'm driving i can hardly tell that my engine is running from inside the cabin. does this Mopar Cold Air Intake system add sound? am i gonna hear the engine when I'm sitting in the car driving?

thanks in advance

Dont know what motor you have, but my Hemi came with a Mopar intake on it. Lucky for me in the trunk area was the factory air box. After 2 weeks the factory box went on, and the aftermarket one sits in my attic collecting spiders and dust. I did not like the noise it made.

When you gun it you will hear the intake noise. Under "normal" driving there's no change.

Just curious why you want to put on a CAI if you want to keep the Jeep quiet. Most install one to hear the noise, as there is no performance gains to be had unless you also do the exhaust and ECU tune.

Re: Mopar Cold Air Intake

i did the exhaust upgrade i went from single to dual exhaust. i had a whole system fabricated for me at a local performance muffler shop, from the outside of the car you can hear it, its very aggressive but i don't hear anything inside. id like to keep it that way.

Like I said, just cruising there will be no change. But you will hear the intake noise when you accelerate.

Re: Mopar Cold Air Intake

I have the k&n intake on my 3.6l gc

It makes the vehicle very loud overall..especially when you jam the throttle

It's noticeably louder in the cabin also..but I like it ..I think it sounds pretty good..especially in conjunction with my Gibson exhaust

Unfortunately I have to remove the k&n now as I'm installing the supercharger tomorrow

I'm kind of bummed that Ripp tuned off the stock airbox so now I'm
Going to lose the sound of the k&n

Re: Mopar Cold Air Intake

Greetings,

With my AFE CAI, during normal crusing, it is pretty quiet. The hard accelerations the noise level picks up, but it is not super loud.

The cabin on the JGC does not a nice job in blocking out exterior noise.

Best for now.

Off topic, but are you willing to sell your Mopar intake?
