Re: What did you do to your WK today?

My AFE CAI uses the lower portion of the factory intake box so it still draws in air from the grille and my intake is in closed in a box so it will draw very little engine heat. My intake temps stay pretty low

Isn't the air raid jr kit like a 100+ bucks? I got my tube from the dealer for about 20 bucks...

If it's in a closed box it's really not a cai and the gains from it are gonna be negligible at best. What benefit does your afe cai intake provide over the stock setup? The cone filter isn't gone flow better because of the surface are that's open to it from the bottom is less than a good flowing stock air filter. A true cai that goes below the bumper will benefit some but at a very high risk of hydro locking the motor when you hit a puddle

All CAI's are just noise makers in my opinion lol. Not saying my AFE has any performance gains at all lol. But it definitely looks better than the stock intake lol.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Ok, long time guys, my input:

Air intake, had the mopar one, dropped the mopar cone and added a bmc dual cone , more aurface area than any other cone hence better air flow.

Alex, are you going with a black exhaust tip (eg gibson) ?

Oil.... My jeep is loving the Castrol 10w60, perfect for the hot weather, runs so smooth...

Railing under windows, mine where brushed alu, now all black (painted).

Shout if you need pics, but before saturday as im off to Cape Town -South Africa again.... Lekker!

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I'm looking to replace my sensors. 2 questions. I cross referenced parts numbers and came across these. 56029479AA from a 2011 wrangler 315 MHz. Says they will work in 05-07 grand cherokee. My current have metal valve stems. these have rubber does it matter? I noticed on wkjeeps.com 05-6 and 07 are different parts numbers. But on like dorman for example 05-7 have same number. Does it matter? Also do I need to get my wheels balances along with the tpms sensor replacement? These are the sensors I was looking to purchase ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1399512904.272803.jpg

Did you get your cross reference intel from a reputable source? You've gotta be careful with compatibility, they are in fact the proper frequency (315 MHz), but the ID codes may not be compatible. If they're the improper ID's your WCM won't recognize and learn the new sensors. With all that said, if the intel checks out and is deemed compatible, the metal stems vs. the rubber ones is a non issue, the TPMS sensors have been updated over the years and most are now using the rubber stem and separate sensor module, they're actually a far superior design and eliminate the risk of cracking the metal stem (which happens a lot!). As far as rebalancing after install, as long as you have sensors in your wheels currently and the balance is good, the weight differential between the 2 styles of sensors is minimal and won't have much if any centrifugal force value difference. So if your balance is good, then no, you won't need to balance after install.

when I have done wheels and tires I have almost never seen a perfect balance after remounting a tire. now it can be done by only popping the bead on the sensor side off the wheel and holding the tire down to gain access to it. that would be the only way I can see not needing a rebalance. its always good to recheck tho

True, I guess I assume that whoever is installing the sensors will only drop the front bead and work from there (as I always do). If the tire is dismounted from the wheel entirely then a balance check is definitely recommended. The only reason not to have it checked arbitrarily while the wheels are off the Jeep is if you've got to pay for the check/balance, if your shop covers your balancing then it's always a good idea to have it checked as often as possible/convenient.
