cold air intake opinions please

I recently purchased a 2015 grand cherokee altitude edition with the 3.6 in it. I am looking for a few minor modifications to add a little hp and maybe some better sound. I was looking into the K&N intake kit, but it has a few bad reviews. I am looking for opinions on this kit and any other minor mods. Thanks in advance!

I was thinking of adding a k/n cai as well but was also thinking of going with the cai from mopar instead... just to keep all mopar-like ya know.

Yea, I totally get that thought process. I recently saw some not so good reviews on the K&N brand , which kinda surprised me.

Re: cold air intake opinions please

New member here so I apologize if this comes off wrong. I have many years in modding cars on other platforms but this is the first Mopar product I've owned.
My background is more Euro FI applications but as I get older, much older settling down some. Anyhow doing a CAI on any NA platform motor will yield little if any results. So if those reviews were about lack of performance from the CAI then honestly they should have known that going in. If you like the sound the CAI produces and the fit and finish is also to your liking don't be swayed by performance reviews or lack of performance reviews. Personally if you want as little hassle with the dealer and warranty Magusson-Moss issues the Mopar version could be better for you. I won't be modding our JGC much it's the wife's and she already has forbidden me from opening the hood until it's 12 months old.

well on a na platform youll need a tune to go with that intake to really make it effective. other than that there is minimal gains

Agreed but again on a NA platform there's only a few things you can diddle with on a tune and since I'm new to the Jeep world not sure how much extra timing etc these things can stand without grenading them. BTW any recs on a decent tune for the Pentastar? See the wifey's gonna kill me but I'll flash it in the middle of the night and she'll never know.

Re: cold air intake opinions please

I don't think Diablo supports 15's yet. I just picked up a 15 altitude for my wife and was thinking the same thing. I just put a afe filter in for now. If I would get anything it would be the afe momentum intake because it's a sealed unit but it's pricey at 450 bucks. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1444039823.399238.jpg

Hi guys saw this post thought I'd put in couple of sents. Just got an injen intake for my 2014 3.6l grand Cherokee. It's fricken deep loud at full throttle but at light, its got a nice little throaty tune. Cruising, its quite-ish but still nice. Can have a convo or w.e still. Neat little thing if your outside hearing it or driver side window down is this quick little TSsss that goes as you shut her down. Like she wasn't ready to stop haha. Very responsive. Idk about u guys but I looked at kn like I have had forever and this is by far the sweetest one.

Re: cold air intake opinions please

Thinking about adding CAI to my 2013 Cherokee SRT. Other than cool sound any issues or gains? I have borla cat back already so hoping the EDI can compensate for lean out.
