Cold Air Intake

Hey Guys,

Brand new to the Jeep Community. I just bought an 06 with the 4.7L. I was thinking of either upgrading the filter to a K&N or should I go the route of a CAI, and if so, what brand?
I know its kinda of a "catch-22" but since this is a daily driver Id like to try
to increase MPG if possible (an oxymoron with a v8), yet keep the HP.

Any help is welcomed...thanks

Re: Cold Air Intake

I put the K&N CAI on my 09 4.7. I went with K&N because it got rid of the plenum. Throttle response has increased and IMO runs better with it on. The biggest thing is the sound it makes which alone is worth it. I bought mine at summit racing for I think $279

I second this! And with the aFe you can get the dry filter which is cleanable but does not require re-oiling.

Re: Cold Air Intake

Thanks for the advise so far. I do want to take advantage of the V8 and the sound potential, an exhaust upgrade will be down the line when i have more room in the budget. Is there one from the ones you mentioned that do anything for mileage.

Re: Cold Air Intake

One of the brands that a friend at work recommended was Volant

If you plan on off-roading and water crossing. Get the intake that's in the box. Like volant or something else. My 06 5.7 has a k&n and it I wish I had one instead of the k&n. You can fabricate something to work better. But with my k&n the bottom is open to the fender. So water splashes up and gets it wet when you fly through water. Just my opinion. Besides that I love the way it sounds and how it looks.

There's a kit you can buy that is just an intake tube and keeps the stock air box. Seems pretty reasonable for off-road.

DeKraker...I am very interested in a tube kit which might enable use of my factory filter box. I have found some components from Sceptre which I can cobble together, but a ready made kit would save a lot of time and money. Do you happen to remember where you saw this?
The factory tube slows down the charge air and robs some torque, however,
I believe the factory filter box is better than any of the aftermarket crap. I would use it with a K&N low restrict filter.

AirRaid 310-970 MIT(Modular Intake Tube). I think if my aFe doesnt do the trick off-road, I will switch to this myself.
