Three Choices

Ok, so there are three bolt on mods we can get right now for a 2013 5.7 in the same $200 - $300 range:
1) CAI 2) Ported TB 3) Hypertech Interceptor
Can you guys help me spend my hard earned money wisely? Which is best bang per buck? And also, are the HP gains cumulative....will they add up to something worthwhile if I do all three?
Thank all you guys ...I'm learning so much here!

Re: Three Choices

I would say #3, the tuner. You will get more all around gains with the tuner. Then CAI and then the TB.

Thanks JeepFreak! Already ordered a Volant. I never liked the idea of using the hood as the top of the box.
I cant seem to get any real info on the Hypertech, but since this is my first dive into tuners, I'd just as soon keep it simple. I'm sure HemiFever will be a stronger tune, when they finally get it done, but I like the idea of not being able to get my grubby little fingers in there and messing something up bad.
Do you think I can get forty hp from the two mods together?

Re: Three Choices

I don't think you will see 40 more hp. Maybe around 20. But with the CAI and tuner you will feel a huge difference.

I installed a full CORSA exhaust without headers. Not loud, mellow sound, could feel the difference. I then installed a Volant cold air intake. Again felt the difference,but since then. put on a k and N . K and N easy install, much better and feel more power gains. Not noisy at all. The HYPERTEC made a major difference. Thirty min install time. Have DYNO report on stock jeep. With 87 oct fuel, 25 HP 33 lbs of TORQ. With 93 FUEL, 33HP / 40 lbs TORQ. Jeep runs very well. Mountains feel like flat roads. Passing at any speed, even 100 MPH very easy. Very pleased with MPG INCREASE. TRIP TO INDIANA HOLDING 80 plus for 1200 MILES, THREE TANKS SHOWED 20 MPG EACH. DECIDED TO DRIVE 60' ROUND TRIP MILES ALL HIGHWAY AT 58 MPH STEADY NO passing. 25.5. MPG. The CORSA uses 2,3/4 pipes, straight through all the way. Stock pipes are a real joke. Looking at them, I would guess they are 1.5 inches with major flat sections and bends. The air intake looks like a egg carton cannot understand how air gets pass the restrictions.

Hypertec PHONE number, 901-382-8888. Product is Hypertec INTERCEPTER. THEIR ADVERTISEMENT STATES, MORE H.P. TORQUE, QUICKER ACCELERATION, IMPROVE DRIVEABILITY, BETTER FUEL MILEAGE, EASY INSTALATION. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH ALL THEY INDICATED. MY 2012 GRAND CHEROKEE IS A DIFFERENT VEHICLE. THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH OF THE GAS PEDAL HAS INSTANT RESPONSE. Also, recommend the K&N Air FILTOR full intake. I also installed the full CORSA, no headers. However, the Hypertec really made a big difference.

I installed an afe CAI, little more expensive than K&N but I liked the materials better, heat shielded powder coat black to match the rest of the engine.

Extreme improvements in, Hp, torque, and mpg.

I am thinking of buying the Hypertech Interceptor and wanted to ask if it will add to the gains I have already seen or if it will just be redundant and a waste of cash? If it not going to have additional gains what should I turn to next?

Thanks, man. I will give them a call and hopefully they will have good things to say.

I will provide an update on my opinions after installing the interceptor.

BTW afe makes fantastic CAI, everyone just knows the K&N name.

I installed the hypertech interceptor yesterday and I had serious issues. Upon completion of the installation I received two warning lights, one reset after disconnecting the negative battery cable, however the other light indicates an issue with the throttle. Before trying to reset the warning lights I had serious problems with the throttle. The car started fine an idled just fine however upon pressing the pedal there was very little response. I could maybe get the rpms to about 2000-2500 at full throttle. I feel like the throttle control unit maybe flawed or I didn't do something properly before installing. Has anyone ever had this issue before and know what I need to do to get it to work properly?

Thank you!
Rich
