2011+ Grand Cherokee/Durango V6 3.6 and 5.7 Airaid install and REVIEW! Very suprised!
 
Mods so far:

Stainless Steel 3" Magnaflow true dual exhaust with X pipe and 5" tips

install pics of Airaid! Install instructions from Airaid are VERy good! The install is very easy. Its simply removing the stock airbox which consists of unscrewing the accordian tube, removing the breather tube by simply pullling it off, unsnap the top of the airbox and remove that and the filter. next pull the bottom of the airbox up to remove.

Assemble the Airaid box using the supplied 8-10 screws...very easy. Reuse the tow rubber grommets from the stock airbox in the Airaid airbox. Bolt on the silver bracket supplied by Airaid using to bolys and nuts.

unbolt the power steering reservoir and push the airbox into the stock location, snapping into the rubber grommets. Then slide the bracket under the power steering resevoir and bolt it down. Next....attach accordian tube and breather tube. Airaid supplies a new rubber hose for 5.7's and a add on hose for the V6. Very easy to do!

Next...attach filter. I used the non oil filter that is an option with Airaid!

My Review....
I was very suprised by the increased feel after install. Very obvious throttle response and seat of the pants horsepower. Response is increased in low range and high rpms. I can also tell the difference in the sound of the engine and exhaust. I feel the combo of the true dual exhaust and the airaid intake have increased the output of power across the rpm range. Next I plan a ported TB!

Was the Magnaflow a kit or did you piece it together?
