Re: New AFE Intake for Jeep SRT

I've got the aFe Magnum dry intake installed on my 2015. Build quality is good and the vehicle does seem even more responsive with it installed. The filter is huge on this thing and sounds plain awesome sucking in all this air.

That looks really good! Appears to fit very nicely and I like the heat shield...appears to help with all the heat the SRT gives out. Thanks for the pics...

What did you do? It appears you moved the IAT and mounting location? Was that left over from your BWoody? Thanks for the pic...looks sweet...I think I found my intake! Are you happy with the dry filter?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought I had seen someone mentioning in a post that the trim piece in the lower right hand corner of the picture can be removed to allow fresh air in from under the front driver's side lip of the hood? Anyone successfully remove this trim piece (if so, how?) and any thoughts on whether it helps temps/air flow/performance vs allowing water in?

Re: New AFE Intake for Jeep SRT

Working on enclosing the whole thing. I switched out the 3 1/2" pipe for a 4" to try and bring the tip of the iat sensor away from the hit metal tube. The stock tube is the same diameter but has a riser to lift the iat sensor more towards the center of the air flow.

I pulled mine out when I installed my AFE intake. Takes about 30 seconds to do (pull the two retaining pins). Not sure on how much of a difference it made, but my IAT temps hover between 5-8 degrees above ambient when moving at anything more than about 10mph.

Re: New AFE Intake for Jeep SRT

Does anyone have dyno results other than what AFE claims? Also is the sound difference that noticeable? Ready for a CAI and prefer to purchase one that has proven performance however Injen is a lot cheaper.

Re: New AFE Intake for Jeep SRT

Just installed the aFe #51-12662

VERY happy with build quality, fitment and appearance! I will post all the pics I have...took about 1 hour start to finish...no modification needed!


Everything removed:



All the parts you take out:




Trickiest part was making enough room to get to the bolt behind the washed reservoir...this is used to secure the heat shield




Installed!! Not fitment or clearance issues at all...

NOTE I DID remove the flap above the headlight...seems like a no brainer to allow more air into there from the front as well!!!











I will update this thread as time goes on...but so far I am very happy...IAT temps are 4-7 degrees above ambient when moving...2 degree lower than stock (for me)
