Pretty much says it all, right?

Unless anyone is planning to add a vacuum hose and stretch their intake to outside the car, you won't be getting much feedback performance wise.

Glad I could help.

Re: Aftermarket Cold Air Intake... Why? Which one?

I wonder if there is any gains on cars that have ram air or where cold air is forced into the filter area.. These tests were done while sitting still on a dyno.. Thanks a lot Pinetar.. !! As I carry my CAI off into the sunset lol jk😎

The Volant does this.

Agreed, that freezing air created by the engine isnt where any gains come from. The decreased restriction in the intake is where its at and if you add that to a ported throttle body and a tune there is power to free up. Worth the cost? For me yes for others maybe not.

Re: Aftermarket Cold Air Intake... Why? Which one?

I put in the Mopar, which is the only one legal in California. It looks great (http://www.jeepgarage.org/members/43...cture2957.html), sounds great (http://www.pocketpigskin.com/MyCloud...eTollPlaza.wmv), and the throttle response is better.

I added some reflective insulation around the heat seat to reduce the amount of heat in the engine bay getting near the air intake.

You can see the reflective insulation (silver) covering the heat shield (black). I used Reflectix, which you can buy from Home Depot.

Re: Aftermarket Cold Air Intake... Why? Which one?

The forum website keeps messing up the link. Go to my album and look at the Accessorize section. The main photo is the engine with the CAI.

Do you have any other way of sharing the sound? The audio link isn't supported for me. I would love to hear it.
