Air Resonator Delete mod for 3.7!!!!

its a liberty tube

Trying to avoid the accordion tube -- seems like it'd add turbulence, but whether or not it has any noticeable effects, your guess is as good as mine

Re: Couple 3.7L intake questions

Here's an email I got today from Airaid...

Quote:
You are correct the WK were 2005-2010, but they did make sheet metal changes through out the years. If they changed the hood area at all our system would not seal anymore. Also I noticed looking online that in 2009 they did make some design changes in the engine compartment area as well.
Thanks Ben
To me it seems like he's saying the issue is simply w/ the heat shield forming a seal against the hood, rather than any other fitment issues from the throttle body down. I sent him another reply to see if he can confirm.

GR33N D3MON, if you happen to snap a couple more pics, think you could also get a close-up of the area over where the filter/heat-shield would go?

I figure if there are any changes, I could always add some weather striping or foam to help seal... and even if worst come to worst and it doesn't seal perfectly, it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

I'll keep everyone updated

Re: Couple 3.7L intake questions

Sweet, thanks man -- here are pics I just took of mine (raining out so they didn't turn out too great)











By my unprofessional eye, looks pretty identical to me. Only thing I could see that might get in the way would be the different coolant reservoirs. Like I said before, thinking I'm just going to find a vendor that has a good return policy and go for it

Re: Couple 3.7L intake questions

Just got this too...

Yes the weather strip not forming a seal would be the major issue. I do believe though with some modifications you could make it work.
We are looking into the 07 + models as well but it will be awhile before it’s in production.
Thanks, Ben

Now to find a vendor w/ the best prices...
