It's here.... BWoody 4" Air Intake for the 2011 Hemi Wk2

Hey all,

The BWoody Air Intake for the 2011 Hemi Wk2 has arrived. I just picked up my Jeep a few minutes ago and the Intake looks great; I opted for Gloss Black

Some notional numbers on performance*...

Stock Air Filter: ~690cfm
K&N Drop-In: ~ 720cfm
4" BWoody w/ Conical K&N: ~1220cfm

Estimated Increase - 16-20 flywheel HP over stock**

*I didn't write these down while I was in the shop so I could be off, but you get the idea. Hopefully the real numbers will be on BWoody's website.
**Based on Calculations.

Michael was great to work with and I will definitely go back for future work whether for my Jeep or my 5.0 Mustang. Also, Michael said this would be available on the website soon.

Here are some pics...

EDIT (17 Feb 2011): I added a photo looking towards the front of the vehicle. You can clearly see that all of the stock components were removed. You will also notice the size of the washer fluid reservoir.

Looks good even though it seems from the looks of it like it would just pull HOT engine air!

Interesting numbers though...

Re: It's here.... BWoody 4" Air Intake for the 2011 Hemi Wk2

Moosehead:
- Can definitely hear it and I noticed the low end power when I pulled out of the parking lot into Route 40 (55-mph road).
- No stock components appear to be in place. I'll take another picture tomorrow looking towards the front of the car to verify.

xoxSTUGOTSxox & White Chocolate:

- I inquired as to why it wasn't a lower in the engine bay and the reason is the placement of the ridiculously huge windshield washer fluid reservoir. Never noticed its size, take a look at yours. That is why I referred to it as an Air Intake and not a CAI.

There were some other calculated numbers which showed the potential for a slight increase in fuel economy; I am sure they will be posted as well. I had filled up on my way to BWoody's shop so I will be sure to monitor this tank and the next few.

Re: It's here.... BWoody 4" Air Intake for the 2011 Hemi Wk2

All OEM components were removed, a bracket was used in place of the OEM snorke so it would still allow a ram air effect for this short ram intake. His Jeep was only available for about 5 hours today so we were not able to really look into making a true cai as of yet, yes the windshield washer resevior is huge, id say close to 1.5 gallons. We would have to make a new resevior before we could even attemp fabricating a true CAI. But believe it or not the engine temps in that part of the engine bay are about 38 degrees cooler in that area when we measured it earlier at full operating temperature, i believe that is due to the cutout for the snorkle. What was disturbing was how low the OEM flow rate was....we believe due to all of the factory silencing ducting on the intake (which it flows the least we have ever tested to date)

Here are the flow bench results:

28" of water:
OEM intake w/OEM filter - 687.8 cfm <-----this is barely enough to support airflow to the engine IMO
OEM intake w/K&N drop in filter - 722.6 cfm <------ now were talking much better numbers but this is due too the K&N being 1/3 the thickness of OEM (gonna have to clean it very often)
OEM with no air filter - 731.1 cfm
4" BWoody Velocity Plus 2011 Jeep <-------1218.3 cfm (530.5 cfm increase over stock estimated 16-20 whp over stock, added efficiency making the engine work less for air should decrease fuel consumption ......that is if you can keep your foot out of the throttle...lol)

AFR reading OEM intake WOT run 12.1 -12.3 <-------runs a tad on the rich side
AFR reading with 4" BWoody Velocity Plus WOT run 12.4-12.5 <----leaned the motor out to where it is optimal.

AFR readings prove there will be a substansial increase in fuel economy as well as a substancial increase in power.
