Air Resonator Delete mod for 3.7!!!!

ok guys here is the deal. This can be done if you already have the k+n intake or if you have the stock air tube and want to get rid of your air res box...

go to your local stealership and ask then for part number : 53013907AB (tube from 09 liberty cost $35)

The wire for the IAT sensor is not long enough. You also want to use the sensor from your jeep not the one that comes with the new tube.

you can use 18 gauge wires and solder them to make an extension for the plug.(pics to come when i actually do this)

marlon was the first person on this site to do it that i am aware of. People with nitro's and liberty's also do this to get rid of the air res. i did not come up with this idea.




edit: i am also thinking of getting a piece of tubing to replace the accordion style pipe in-between the k+n pipe and the liberty tube

I am adding my k+n short ram intake today and will hopefully have this installed as well...

well mostly all cai,short rams connect their air pipe directly to the throttle body. for whatever odd reason k+n decided for 3.7 models they will not do this!

This should give you slightly better throttle response, mostly it allows better air flow into the throttle body. The air doesn't circulate in the air res before going to the throttle body!

Do you have dyno sheets to back this up? Lol, jk. Looks good. But if someone already has the K&N CAI and gets the Liberty tube you say, the K&N tube wont fit to the new Liberty tube and another section of tube will need to be bought and added? I sold my stock intake so I dont have the accordian type tube anymore.

you can also buy a silicone elbow and one small piece of straight piping for this. The Liberty pipe and accordian tube seems a little gaudy IMHO.

the liberty tube comes with the accordian pipe so you can just use that.

yes but then you have to drill a hole for the sensor as well

same as you do with the liberty pipe and acccordian...right? The accordian could be considered a restriction and then the liberty pipe looks smaller than the K&N piping...that could be a problem too????

the liberty pipe comes with a hole for the sensor. the pipe is also the same size as the k+N, i want to remove the accordian pipe. ill prob fix something up for that
