Re: New aFe intake option coming...

Had the CAI on for a while now and I'm happy with it.

My previous best 0-100, which was in winter, was 4.7, with the highest of 5.0 (multiple runs on the same day). Unfortunately I cannot remember what the temp was on this day, but being winter wouldn't have been higher than 24c (75f).

Over the break, went for a drive out to the same "test" strip on a 34c (94f) day. 4 runs with a 4.5 on the second and a highest of 4.8.

I know there's a lot of variables and I'm not sure of the EVIC's accuracy, but that I've improved the 0-100 (even by the smallest amount) in the middle of summer, is enough validation for me.

I've not found much improvement over the stock box in temps while idle, but once moving, it seems to drop quicker than stock and on average seeing about 5-8c above ambient (the hotter the day, the larger the difference).

All above completely from my experience with no additional supporting data other than what I wrote down over the past couple of months.

Let the soap opera continue

I honestly noticed "no" difference at all from before

I'll tell u what's been the best bang for the buck in the "actual butt Dyno" dept
-sprint booster
Has the throttle response and overall feel so different than stock.
I highly recommend it 100%

No Soap Opera Needs to continue.
Takes time the first Dyno was 7HP the second a few weeks later was 24hp no one can determine power from the seat LOL

The 24HP dyno # was in 80* humidity surprised the shit out of me!

More HP means more power period!

To say let the soap opera continue is pointless it's proven what it can do and the majority seems really happy like someone mentioned above drive it and enjoy it's making power and making more than anything else out their Period.

A 2-6* temp fluctuation isn't gonna do anything better well it may help yes but so little it's not stoping this intake from making power 1 bit. IMO when we start to see more #'s I have a feeling someone will crack the 30HP claim they saw at AFE

Spoke with AFE in length 2hrs to be exact and they saw the same temps from the OEM box on and off the Dyno around town etc. They treated the AFE the same way no special treatment on and off mentioned the dyno and around town all done the same day with both intakes. So with this said he went on to say their was no increase in temp with the AFE at all. The power was the only thing increased over OEM and that's what they control with design and Airflow engineering.

Everyone is going to see different temps different climates etc like I mentioned above it's been a focus here and I'm still unsure why even with a 24hp increase for 400 buck no one is giving you that with any other mod I think ^ above got 20 with Long tubes on his jeep if I remember correctly and those are 1200-1600 plus install LOL.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I had sprinter booster on my evo X. Your butt dyno will love it but it only plays with the throttle position. usually 3 or 4 settings. For 200-400 bucks its really not worth it unless you want a new gadget it your vehicle.

Very true Chad, so far the AFE's intake 24 hp has been the best bang for the buck I haven't seen proof of any other intake making that kind of power. I'll take AFE headers for 1300 Chad i do have a dyno graph for my AFE long tube headers showing an increase of 20 hp on the same dyno & same operator but that's topic for another thread, I will take 1 of those seals for the intake when you get one, my seal is working fine but to have one like factory makes it all the better.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I've been running this AFE intake with the Pro5r filter now for a few weeks and i thought i would share my experience.... The install time took less than 15 mins and had very clear instructions and required only very simple hand tools. I took my Jeep for a drive after the install and immediately noticed the throaty intake sound and very snappy throttle response. I didn't check the IAT on the first drive but on my 2nd drive i noticed about a 6-7 degree difference over ambient while driving. I'm very pleased with the build quality and fitment of the intake and the Jeep feels stronger. Overall I honestly think this is the best intake option available for the SRT Jeeps!

I ordered mine on Black Friday and finally received it earlier this week. I plan to install it tomorrow, but with Snowmageddon II here for the weekend, it will probably be a while before I can get some good seat time to test it out...

Mine was quite a small hole as well, I would open that hole a bit in my opinion.
