Stock Intake and Exhaust...
 
Ok, Although I've only had my Hemi for about 10 days now and I maybe getting a little old, is 46 old? Anyway, some opinions, Jeep seem to have put a fair bit of effort in designing the intake tract, collecting cool air from under the front of the hood and a large air chamber in front of the throttle body, looks ok and sure does sound good when I floor it, can there really be any advantage in tearing it all off and putting an over priced piece of pipe there with a pod stuck on the end of it sucking warm air.... I wonder? Same with the exhaust, apart from what seems an oversized muffler, it all clears the body well with fairly large diameter pipes that do not drone inside the cabin, Ok, I agree it could have more of a V8 burble at idle, but once again is it worth ditching for a droning body fowling nightmare of an exhaust, that often come in kits that never seem to fit just right....Right or wrong? any thoughts.... I'll get off my soapbox before I fall off....

You've already figured out the minuses to adding the stuff, and should have yourself talked out of doing it.

Everything i've read, the intake is better for highway or rural driving,like i do. Hot air not just building up in the engine compartment and then the engine eating it all. So city or stop and go driving i wouldnt reccomend the intake. Thats what the ricer forums say for the most part.
