New aFe intake option coming...

Taken from another site, but what do you guys think of this design... Looks well shielded from engine heat and pulls air from the stock SRT location as well as the lower model WK2 intake location at the hood,

This stems off of our previous development of the Momentum series for the Challenger/Charger Hellcat 6.2L, the SRT 6.4L 392 and other SRT models.

We are finalizing our testing, and will be sending this to production shortly, and these intake will be available soon. This is a different style to the already available aFe Magnum Force Stage 2 Intake, and provides more horsepower and a cleaner OEM look as well as shorter installation time.

Here is all of the info!

aFe POWER Momentum Sealed Air Intake System - 2012-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 6.4L HEMI


The aFe Momentum Intake System is built to maximize airflow, and utilizes a massive air filter designed specifically for this intake. By outflowing the factory intake and improving efficiency, gains of +35HP and +30lbs x ft of torque are realized at the wheels with just this upgrade. (Dyno sheet below)

That takes the maximum power from 368.84HP to 402.83HP!

Quick Data Points:

• Improved Horsepower & Torque - Improved Throttle Response
• Sealed Intake Design - Roto-molded Tube w/Premium Hardware
• Massive Cone Air Filter - Choice of Cleanable/Reusable Oiled or Dry Filter Media
• One-Piece Sealed Housing w/Clear Sight Window
• Direct Bolt-On - No Cutting or Drilling - 30 Minute Install - Utilizes Factory Intake Tract
• No Tuning Needed


(This is a prototype 3D printed part used in testing - Final version will be roto-molded and smooth)


Development Information

For those not immediately familiar with aFe POWER, and our Intake Development process; All design and engineering comes from our 165,000 sq. ft. facilities in Southern California. We utilize the latest in technology, 3D scanning, 3D printing, CAD design software, and have an in-house AWD Dynojet Dynamometer.

We scanned the Grand Cherokee engine bay, analyzing the stock intact tract, and designed a new intake system that outflows the stock setup. Once the initial design was completed, we were able to "print" plastic prototype parts from our 3D printers, and construct the complete prototype and install on the vehicle. From there we were able to test the vehicle on the dyno. Through rigorous testing, such as monitoring performance and ECU parameters in real-time, we were able to tweak and make any changes that were necessary.

Once R&D is complete, we move to manufacturing of the intake itself, creating the intake molds from CNC machines, and production begins. Premium hardware is used on the kit, including stainless steel T-Bolt clamps and Momentum intakes are designed with fewer parts, which allows this intake to be installed in 30 minutes for most.

Installation for the housing mounts the kit directly into the factory location on the fender well, ensuring the coolest air possible is being captured from the factory air intake inlet. A large clear sight window is built into the housing for easy filter inspection without removal of the air box. The largest filter possible was used and is available in two different filter media options: Pro 5R is an oiled filter media for maximum airflow, while the Pro DRY S "oil-less" filter media provides maximum filtration.

Looks interesting.

They obviously put some thought into the aesthetics/design....but I think I hate the way it looks.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

Is this compatible with hot and dusty environments where temperatures reach above 45 Celsius ? A-kon once explained why a CAI would not be beneficial in such climates Best CAI for the SRT in a very hot Climate ? , so wondering if this is any different. The boxed/sealed approach should resemble the stock intake regarding heat protection from the engine bay and dust, so that's interesting.

Also, I don't know about the others but I love the design!!! I wonder if there is a possibility to have the filter in red rather than blue ? Would fit nicer with a red car.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

@Darkhue this design will probably cut down on engine heat while pulling more air using the same air paths as the stock intake. It would be a better choice than the injen for sure in your environment.

Based on A-kon's opinions/feedback with temps that high you probably still aren't going to get enough cool air to make a difference.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I had an AFE on my 335xi was a great intake and nice engineering

I would swap out my injen for this ... I don't drive with the hood open so don't care what it looks like

but would like red to match with my red vapor engine covers
