6.1L intake tube on 5.7L?
 
I'm looking to replace the bulky air intake resonator tube on my 2009 Grand Cherokee 5.7L. I saw that Airaid makes a nice replacement, but it's a bit more than I was hoping to spend. Has anybody tried installing the intake tube from a 6.1L on the 5.7L? It's looks like they're about the same size, but I'm not sure if the sensor fittings are the same. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Buy an Airaid Jr. Intake.

You may want to look at some of the WK SRT-8 forums in their for sale areas. Should be lots of complete stock setups available for cheap.

Before buying a 6.1L intake I was hoping somebody would know if it actually fits on the 5.7L without any modification. The Airaid Jr. kit is a good back-up plan, though...

Well, the truck is the same, and the TB is the same(at least interchangeable), so i can't see why it wouldn't

Others are running this set-up, you're good to go. Jeepgcoman is right, get the whole set-up. I've seen the whole thing sell for $25.

And yes, it is a direct swap. Heck I made an LX (Magnum, Charger, 300C) SRT-8 setup work on my 5.7 WK. Had to do a little modding though since it's mounted on the driver's side on the LX..

Outstanding! Well if anybody out there has a stock 2005-2010 6.1L JGC intake sitting around, please send me a PM.

I have one on my 5.7. The top and lower airbox are the same. I was thinking about selling it.

How much are you asking? Are you unhappy with how it works on your 5.7?

Checkout Cherokeesrt8, some are for sale or just post up a wanted ad. Sold my setup for like $40 shipped. I have a brand (couple thousand miles on it) new k&n drop in filter for the stock 6.1 intake for sale if you need one.
