4.7 AFE Stage 2 intake - INSTALLED!!
 
Hey guys i recently purchased a used AFE Stage 2 from one of our fellow JG members... i installed it last night, check it out!!

Install time SHOULD be 30 - 45 minutes... without directions 1-2 hours and a few phone calls ;)

The kit mounted to the bottom portion of the stock air filter box... it was kind of a bitch at first to line up but once i got it, everything fit nice and snug. The O2 sensor hose had to be shortened to fit the new location, closer to the fire wall. Other than that install was pretty simple and smooth.

End pics were taken at night so sorry for the poor quality... thanks Jacob for your help, really saved me a ton of frustration!!

I will be seeing how this affects my mpg's and if i notice any power gains... but for now, jeep kinda sounds cool :thumbsup:

Ants, i believe there are only two CAI kits made for the 4.7... K&N and AFE. I think the K&N is slightly better performance but you also pay close to $400 for it, def not worth the $$ for me... CAI's dont really do that much at the end of the day.

thanks bud!! maybe you can throw a pic of the K&N and we can have a thread that compares the two. There is a lot of people on here with our motors that want a CAI and are always asking for comparisons. :thumbsup:

Great idea! Ill get the pics up ASAP. Next, you have to contact Dan, www.thefastman.com for his ported TB. Only costs $180 after the core charge. Improves throttle response and SOUND

thats funny... my gf was driving my jeep last night and was complaining that there is a lag in throttle response when she slams the gas down... she drives a bmw so i told her its because they are different cars duh!!

So you notice a big difference in throttle response with that ported TB??

Edit: just emailed Dan about how the ported TB helps other than just sound and throttle response, i will post his response once he writes back. Looks like a pretty good deal if it eliminates the delay... i personally do not like the lag on the throttle response so if this thing helps, im all about it!!

Does help reduce lag and the sound is quite delicious! Haha

And the BMW comparison is just unfair! :lol:

ALSO, email Hemifever@aol.com about a tuner from SCT. He's helping me get a SCT tuner(custom tunes) for my V6! Which is unheard of right now...
That should greatly increase power, throttle response, etc.
