K&n cai

Hey guys I got a K&N cold air intake for my jeep 4.7 that a guy got rid of because he sold his jeep, I got it for 130.00. Anyway the thing looks brand new but he had an 03 grand cherokee and for the 03 you have to cut 6 inches off the vent hose to make it work. (says on instructions and his is cut). Im talking about that little rubber hose that connects to the middle of the air tube. Do you think I can just put it back together and tape it with electrical tape. I dont see a problem with doing it since there wont be any pressure to blow the tape off. What do you guys think?

Re: K&n cai

Re: K&n cai

Go to like Home Depot or something and see if you can find another piece like that. If you can tape it up then go for it.

Vacuum Hose. I think that's the only hose there is.

Re: K&n cai

Just go to a hardware store and get a new piece of hose. Taping it will work but but won't look good.

Re: K&n cai

that's the breather hose. just go to any hardware or auto supply store and buy a 2-3 ft hose with the same interior diameter. it's only going to be a couple of dollars.

Re: K&n cai

no i havent tried it yet dreamer, i just thought it wouldnt fit because the directions only mention that you have to cut 6 inches off for the 03 models only.
