Need a little help... Question about 4.7 WJ FIPK
 
Hey fellas...Need a little help. I am ditching my old PVC intake and am going to make a new intake. I can't see the point in spending lots of $$$$ on a K&N kit when all I need , really, is just a tube with the correct bends.

Can someone with the K&N FIPK get me the approximate angle of the tube where its bending away from the TB? I know it's not 90, and not 45.

Thanks guys

Can't tell you the exact angle ATM. But here's what it should look like when done :lol:

^^ That is the best K&N out there. To bad they don't make it for 3.7 with that configuration.

I need it for a 99-04 WJ........But, the angle on yours seems like it's similiar....just the opposite direction...

i don't have any pics of mine on my car but it makes a 90 degree angle right out of the throttle body and then very slightly angles so where it sits.

this is one pic i could find.

Its not a 90. I need someone to actually take an angle finder (i.e. protractor) and physically measure it.

4.7 WJ intake looks almost exactly the same as in my wk. Give me a few hours to find my protractor and I'll give you the exact angle :D.

And no....it's certenly not a 90 degree. It's a 110 or something.

Ok, so it's roughly a 120 degree angle. Hard to get it exact when it's not a sharp bend though.

Good luck!
