Hi DAZSRT,

If you're keen, drop me a PM as I've got a new one in the box that I've not installed. Ended up going a custom option.

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Sorted the whistling. It was the clamp closet to the throttle body that was loosening off... was definitely sucking air. After 500km now with the injen, my impression is that while initial throttle response is improved, it does lack some low end torque and has a bit of a flat spot around 2200 rpm. I've put the stock box back on, and it is definitely much smoother and feels like it pulls better below 3,000 rpm. The gear shifts also feel smoother. Could just be my imagination, but unlike my 2011 overland the CAI made a huge positive improvement in driveability and it's just not there with this CAI. I wonder if the flow is too turbulent.

Anyway, that's all subjective feeling stuff.. the computer says my 0-100km times are 0.2 seconds worse, 5.5s instead of 5.3s (same stretch of road, same conditions etc), but my 0-200m times are the same (9.1 seconds)

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Of what I've seen and read around the place it appears the factory air box is pretty damn good. Same with some guys changing full exhausts and dropping bottom end power....Maybe the SRT designers have spend the right amount of hours with their high tech engineering gear and come up with a bloody good factory set up???

Thanks for the very informative post!
Scott, I have the black set up. It is not plastic. It is a black wrinkle coating. Does not get as hot as the polished version.

With a CAI you really need to go with a larger TB to see improvements. I have and I love them. The Whistle everyone is talking about if just the sound it makes sucking in lots of air. I love that sound! No lose clamps of any kind.

I have the injen and I wouldn't say awesome persay. I do like the whistle. The heat shield helps...

Going lower in the engine bay or the front grill would be a better option. I love the injen though for it's installation with no compromise...

Re: Just Installed Injen CAI: Thoughts and Pictures

Gettin' one. Black wrinkle.

Also, if you stick your hand inside the left side front wheel well, you'll find the black lining material gives a bit and leads directly to the air box space. I imagine that this also aids in getting cold air into the box instead of drawing it from the engine compartment. A more adventurous type might just mod it and cut a hole and cover it with some kind do screen or mesh negating the need to go full CAI like the Bwoody.

EDIT: Just bought one off Ebay at a really good price. Brand new but well below normal price for some reason. $189.88 + shipping. We here in Oz always get screwed with shipping so it worked out well. Shoulda bought two.
