Re: Thinking about this intake

I have the K&N model 63 which removes the airbox and have the plastic tube which I wanted, it looks a lot like that model and I love it, it sounds awesome after I put it on i debated installing the muffler because the intake alone made it sound really good. I think the K&N is about 250 or 60 bucks shipped.

Re: Thinking about this intake

i ended up winning a pretty much mint condition k&n for my jeep on ebay for 130.00. They are very high quality in my opinion. The box is huge that it comes in as well, I didnt think it would be all of what it was. So you should check ebay for some lightly used ones.

Re: Thinking about this intake

I have the K&N CAI for my 3.7 WK installed over a year now. I think for the price someone can make one much cheaper like Matt did and get the same results. I dont have any other experience with CAI's, except I had a K&N panel filter installed in my WK before this CAI and there is a noticable sound and performance difference in a good way.

As for it being an oiled filter, I did notice before there was a little bit of the oil inside the tube, so when cleaning it I made sure to only put as much oil as needed to coat the filtering part making sure it wasnt dripping. Since then I have not noticed oil inside the tube. I think the people that have problems with sensors getting clogged or covered in oil are putting too much on. After oiling the filter I will press a clean cotton rag all around it to absorb any "extra" oil that may be on it, doing this until no more red oil is getting on the rag.

I'd just get the biggest cone type filter that will fit in there. I do want to upgrade to the type of filter that has the top open, so there is more surface filtering area. I have seen Mustang "ram air" kits that have the filter open on the top of it with a tube connected to it leading out the front of the bumper, seems like a cool concept that will push the air into the filter when driving faster. I'd make my own intake tube from the bumper to the filter though, no more paying high prices for stuff I can make myself from plumbing parts.

Re: Thinking about this intake

you can remove the stock intake pieces that go behind the grill and it opens up a huge hole where air goes directly into the filter area.

I did that when I put the K&N CAI in. I ended up selling the stock intake assembly on ebay for like 50 bucks to someone who was over here in the US on business to take back to europe.

That was going to be my plan as well. Try to offset some of the cost.
