Thank you! I chose the AFE intake because Im pretty sure it has the largest Tube diameter, You have a choice between a dry and a oiled filter, The tube's coating is almost like a think rhino liner, making it look great and insulate, also I like the heatshields construction, how it seals to the hood and how it still utilizes the stock intake scoop. Overall I love it, it sounds so deep and it looks beautiful.

Re: Performance mods on their way!

Without dyno numbers b4 and after it would be hard to guess the gains per dollar spent .

honestly the gains will never outway the cost and this probably goes for everyone who does bolt-on's on almost any car. except for forced induction or spray.

for me, i cant help but mod what i own, and when you have the extra cash, why not. i honestly can say i gained 15hp MAX between adding the throttle body and intake. but I think the looks and sound mean more to me at this cost.

Re: Performance mods on their way!

I have never heard of an oil catch can before buying my Jeep and reading about them here at the JG I thought omg these Jeeps leak so much oil you need a damn can to catch it well then I read several items about them and made me a believer I just ordered a Black one So thanks everybody for the tip!

Re: Performance mods on their way!

Well I got my catch can I ordered black I got chrome... not matter it was a 30 min job although 10 minutes was retrieving one of the mounting nuts that dropped under the fuse box, install was pretty simple. I checked the oil and it has not moved off the 4th from the bottom hash mark it was at when I checked it the first day I drove it home (actually the next morning) I have 4,700 miles on it now I plan on having the oil change over to synthetic in 300 more miles, I am loving this baby more everyday no problem to date... but I expected no less
