Have you looked into if a HEMI intake would fit onto a 3.7? Just an idea
It won't. the overflow is in the way, and the 5.7 TB is larger than a 3.7.

Randall, I know this is an apples-to-oranges comparison, but on my 4.7 WJ when I went to the '08 manifold, I ditched my old intake and using sillicone couplers and polished aluminum piping from Spectre (purchased through Air Ram), I made my own intake. I managed to score some free header wrap from a racing buddy of mine, which was just enough to cover the entire tube. Going that route is alot cheaper than paying major $$$ to buy a Airaid, or K&N, etc etc etc. Plus you can run whatever filter you want. I personally run a 6x11 UNI foam air filter.

Re: Thinking about this intake

it wont work. Like you said the TB is located at the back of the engine on mine and it is in the front on the 5.7. Im just not sure if The airaid is better as it removes the airbox before the TB.

Re: Thinking about this intake

Gotcha...I did not remember what the 3.7 engine bay looked like.

I made an intake for my Dodge Dakota 4.7L and it was def a cost-effective route...and like Sleepy said you can run ANY air filter you want. Has anyone made one for the 3.7 on JG?

By airbox are you referring to the actual box in which the filter resides in, or are you referring to the resonator that sits right in front of the TB?

The former doesn't necessarily restrict flow (if it has any ridges or areas of turbulence inside, they can be removed), but the resonator is a means of supressing sound. the accordion-like tube connecting the two together is probably the biggest hindrance to flow most likely.

A few guys have made PVC intakes and such. it'd certainly be easy enough to make one. Maybe I should start selling custom intakes along with the throttle bodies?

Re: Thinking about this intake

I tried again to get ahold of AirRam to see if they would be interested in Price Matching but have yet to hear anything back from them. Im not sure if they dont want to try and match the price on this or not. I really want to give them the opportunity to match this. I guess ill wait a couple of days

I was referring to the Resonator box at the top of the engine by the TB. The AirAid removes that but the K&N does not.

I spoke to Nick the other day on the phone, he is just now getting settled in his new place in FL so honestly if you're looking to buy ASAP I would go ahead and just purchase it. He's a great guy but he admitted that he is a few weeks behind on emails and such.

Regarding the resonator,,,I would remove it if that tells you anything

Re: Thinking about this intake

In my opinion I would go to local auto stores and buy "universal" CAI parts and make one yourself, I wish I did it and with my next car I def will. Get the biggest cone type filter you can fit in the engine bay. I have the K&N which is oiled and have no problems with it. I hear people saying stay away from oiled filters because the oil messing the intake parts up, but if you only oil the filter just enough so it soaks in and is not dripping you will be fine. When I clean my filter I also clean the intake tube and it is always dry meaning no oil is getting in there.

As far as the K&N CAI kit retaining the resinator, I think if K&N thought it would add more HP or perform better I think they would of made a kit that removed it instead of keeping it. All I know is the motor gets plenty of air in now with the K&N, just starting it up it sounds like a turbo sucking so much air in. But I would also def do a cat back exhaust with getting a CAI.
