Just finished my 2nd CAI

About a week after I got my WK GCO I ripped the stock intake silencer off and did a quickie CAI. I also added a second air intake to the airbox to allow more air into stock box. Now I got rid of that whole setup and modified an LX SRT (Chrysler 300CSRT, Charger SRT, Magnum SRT) intake system that I had laying around. Took the whole afternoon and the biggest problem was everything had to be reversed, as the LX's have the airbox where the battery is in the WK. I also had to extensively modify the SRT airbox, make new mounts, and fabricate a baffle to keep hot engine air away from the airbox bottom. Now, instead of two 3 in. inlets to the stock airbox and a 3 in. tube from the box to the throttle body, I now have about a 7 in. inlet into the SRT airbox, and the stock 4 in. outlet that necks down to 3 in. at the throttle body. I'll clean it up in the next day or two, since it's finally starting to warm up here. Total cost was about $5. Not bad and looks stock. In the pix below you can see the difference in the two systems.

Re: Just finished my 2nd CAI

very nice. i always like fabricating things and making them work. the jeep srt8 airbox is a direct replacement. i see them all the time on ebay for $15-25. would have cost you a few bucks more but saved a ton of time. good job though.

Re: Just finished my 2nd CAI

Couldn't see the SRT unit go to waste if I could do something with it. I enjoy tinkering and had the time anyway. One of the other Jeep forums has pictures of the stock WK SRT intake system. I am not sure, but it looks like it's all 3 inch...like the airbox is the same as ours. The only difference appears to be the intake tube, which one would have to buy anyway, unless it comes with the airbox on ebay.

Re: Just finished my 2nd CAI

I can't really tell, but that tube looks like it's 3 inch all the way. The 4 to 3 on my LX SRT unit is quite obvious in the pictures. As I said, I've never personally seen the WK SRT unit so I can't be sure. In any case I'll bet that WK SRT tube cost a buck or two. Next week I should have a little time and I'll head down to the dealer and check some prices and part numbers.
