Re: My intake mockup...

From his pics, the marking has no coolant up to it. From my POV

Re: My intake mockup...

A little update, Still no paint but i did find a bulge Silicone coupler in my tool box that fit at the intake box end pretty well. it looks nicer and will do until i can get some real nice silicone couplers. pic later.

Re: My intake mockup...

Sure, Its really not that much.

1 K&N 63 Series FIPK Plenum tube.

1 3.5" Silicone coupler (final bend not yet determined)

1 3" Silicone coupler Straight (TB End)

4 3"+/- Hose clamps (i re used the stock clamps)

1 K&N Stock replacement panel filter

1 rubber grommet

All i did was start by removing the grille of the jeep and on the left side (looking at the engine) locate the air inlet. I carefully cut the 3 plastic rivets that hold the mushroom style cover over the air inlet and removed this. Its only there to reduce the amount of bugs that can get in the intake box and possibly to help keep some rain water out but there is a rain water drain in the air inlet before the box. It works no different then if you had a regular CAI kit with an exposed filter. Just keep the jeep out of deep water.

Next i installed the K&N filter. It installs like a factory paper air filter.

Next remove the hose clamps on the ribbed air intake tube from the air box to the plenum.

Next Locate the air temp sensor on the intake plenum and remove the sensor from the plenum.

Next loosen the hose clamps at the TB and remove the 2 bolts at the front on the plenum (box on TB) that are located under the front mounting to the intake manifold.

Remove plenum.

Now this is the tricky part.

You need to put the 3" silicone coupler on the TB end of the K&N tube. loosly mount it to the TB and mark where the K&N tube/plenum needs to be cut to mate to the stock intake box inlet. This part took me a few tries to get it right and it still needs a bit of tweaking.

Once that is right the 3.5" silicone coupler will be used to attach the stock air box to the K&N tube/plenum.

I have not made my decision on what bend and length of silicone coupler i will use at the filter end of the K&N tube. For now i am using a 3.5" bulge coupler and it works but its not a very nice fit to the angle of the K&N tube and could potentially loosen up over time. Once i choose a bend and order a coupler i will update.

Next plug the vacuum line on either the K&N tube or use the vacuum line on the K&N tube and plug the vacuum line on the lid of the stock air box. Either one will work, you can leave the factory rubber hose connected to the lid of the stock air box and plug the K&N tubes vac line or vise versa.

Now you need to take the rubber grommet and insert in to the sensor hole on the back of the K&N tube. Remove the rubber O ring from the sensor and carefully insert the sensor in to the grommet making sure the clip part of the sensor plug is on the left or right NOT facing up or down!

And your done!

Now you have the flow of a CAI, the cold air of the stock intake (air is colder at the grille then around a cheesy heat shield). This should help a little with power and feel.

It does not however have that huge gulp effect that a full CAI has but that is due to the panel filter. I have plans to put a cone filter in the stock air box in the future. Or possibly get the K&N enclosed filter setup "Apollo" to replace the stock air box.

If you do not want to cut the K&N tube and do not want to re use the stock air box but the K&N Apollo Setup, clamp it to the K&N tube, mount the apollo tube behind the grille and your done. Its easier and more effective but its expensive.

K&N 63 series FIPK It says 07 to 09 but i am 99% sure ti will fit 05 to 10.

Re: My intake mockup...

awesome kyle.


POINTER: if any of you guys try and buy the tube from K&N be sure to tell them WHY you need to replace your current tube. if you say 'I need a tube to make a homemade CAI ' they will tell you to pound sand/


in my case, i told them the truth that a vendor had mine for refinishing. the job had failed and i was concerned the condition of the tube would be compromised. then my original went to kyle. replacement cost about $90 shipped.

Re: My intake mockup...

Yes i sure did, Thanks again Rob!

Oh and just as a foot note. Ive spent the past hour or so reading through the Air Ram website and i never noticed that they made a section devoted to 4.7L mods. Reading through everything they have done to date there really is alot more potential for the 4.7 then i ever though. I figured id post the link to their 4.7L section for others to read as well as for myself as a bookmark.

Re: My intake mockup...

Why is that? They boast that their stuff will work on all 99 + 4.7s.

exactly they BOAST a ton. however the cutoff is 06 for most of that stuff. how come prolly is a question to ask jeep as they made a change to something internal.

its the same reason lots of 4.7 dodge magnum stuff is NOT compatible with Jeep motors.
they are different. WHY is a great question. prolly a part of the reason chrysler went bankrupt.
