That's correct. 5.7 and I'm trying to keep it as far below 300$ as possible. I built my own for my GTP but in doing that it has no carb sticker and I don't want to have that problem with my daily driver

Thanks for the help man! I don't understand why CAI is so expensive especially the ones with the chrome/aluminum tubing

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Why when I look at some websites they ask if it's a GC, GC2, GC3 after I already gave them the year? If mines an 05 5.7 hemi limited wouldn't it just be GC? Or would it be 2?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I found a k&n CAI 57 series and I also found a spectre CAI and I'm wondering which one I should get. I trust K&N to deliver on the power promise I feel like spectre hasn't proven itself because no one seems to talk about it like they do k&n. But the only problem with the k&n is it's 60$ more and has the black plastic tubing and I want the polished to dress up the engine a little bit and the spectre is polished. Help with my vanity!!

Why do you want a cai? A srt intake tube will be better

What makes the srt intake tube better? I thought CAI was one of the best airflow mods?

With a cai intake unless you drop it down below the bumper it will just suck hot air from the engine. The stock intake with tube gets it from the grill area which is a lot colder. A k and n drop in and a srt intake tube will be MORE than enough airflow for your hemi. Heck it's even more than I need for my 6.4L. With an open cone air filter you greatly increase the risk of hydro locking your motor when it rains.

Or run the air raid jr kit that just replaces the tube from the factory air box to the tb. Cheapest route. Or do what greenwayer said and up to the srt tube. Even better with the challenger iat sensor as well.

Are they saying theres only 3 generations of the grand? I'm pretty sure that there is 4 gens to the gc. Its eighter the ZJ or XJ, the WJ and WK. And now the WK2 even tho chrysler doesn't officially call it the wk2 but a wk. Wk2 was coined by many jeep enthusiasts and its called that on the wkjeeps.com site.
