Gotta give it another whirl this weekend. Might pull the trigger on the intake although I've kinda been holding out for black ops......might wait till the first review on this one but so far I'm liking this design the best from what's out there currently.

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

Been sitting here trying to decide whether to get this intake or not, but honestly how hard would it be to get a drop in "higher flow" filter and fabricate the stock box to do exactly the same thing? Think I've got a weekend project on my hands.....that is if I can get those fasteners out lol

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

Keep us posted on how it feels and intake temperatures when driving around and sitting in traffic.

It's a little ugly but this could be a solution for the bwoody washer tank fiasco.

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

nice, but I like the Injen unit, as it's open top allows air to be drawn in also from the hood vents on an SRT, when I installed mine, I added a layer of heat shielding to the engine side of the Injen Baffle/box, looks nice and reduces temps in the filter/intake area

But the hood vents are actually heat extractors. You aren't pulling air from there. This design is pulling air from the only two possible places in that location. Front of hood and lower engine cavity where the factory pulls air from.

I have the Injen as well btw, so not knocking it.

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

You are correct that when the vehicle is moving , air is extracted up through the hood vents, however when standing still air can be drawn in also... And I think the more open top design of the injen allows more heat to rise up and escape thru those vents, I'm sure both systems allow more and better air flow than stock... It just comes down to personal choice without extensive side by side dino testing.... My opinion is that customers will probably be happy with either one... My Jeep seems to respond alittle quicker since I installed an Injen on mine, but thats just a seat of the pants feeling... 😄

What good does drawing in air do when you're not moving?

I think Injen makes nice stuff, I had their intake on my S4, but I don't think I would put one on my SRT if I got it for free. Heat is a huge issue on this vehicle and a filter on a stick doesn't cut it for these. But, apparently they sound good

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

According to Jegs, my intake may ship on Monday. Please remember to vote on my poll concerning the ram air tube as Volant/Corsa is considering it, but needs good enough interest to make the molds.

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

I am hoping Chad's unit will be a pretty short Ram in design - one that will fit & draw air from the grille rings ... even if it means a water bottle relocation
Been said a thousand times before but you really do have to get the O2 from out front away from anywhere remotely warm & 100% unimpeded

Just my 2cents tho

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

My 2014, even when driven in air temps as high as 115 degrees, on a regular basis, has never gotten the least bit hot, the temp guage has always remained well below the hot range, in the norm.... Thought about going to a 180 degree thermostat, but so far haven't seen any need to do so... I'm Happy with the Injen CAI, and have run lots of other brands on other cars.... As I mentioned earlier, I did add a layer of heat shielding to the Injen air box on the engine side, to further reduce temps at the intake filter area, as much as possible.... Unless your racing for money or Nascar, any CAI system, will add additional air and improve air flow, Mopar even has their own for some engines & cars... That as one person described as a filter on a stick! If your looking for a Ram Air system, that's another story

Re: New Corsa Jeep SRT intake

There really isn't much room to get a scoop made. Only way I see is to move the washer fluid bottle. Not saying it can't be done though as you could attach something to the brake ducts. That's why I chose the bwoody as the engine compartment is completely sealed off and no way does it get any outside air in. The scoop that attaches to the box that sits on top of the headlight is really the only option and I don't see much coming from that as the hood curves down so you don't even have a straight shot there.
