98 4.0 Cold air intake REMOVAL -Help-

Hello all-

I am new to all of this(owning a jeep, and being apart of a forum community) so hello!
The jeep I purchased came with a K and N performance cold air intake.

I have read multiple posts about how these are crap and should be removed. I am a newb to this kinda thing so I would like to learn more about HOW TO REMOVE IT and replace it with a factory one or one that isnt as harmful.

Any help will be awesome.

They aren't crap. Keep it.

I wouldn't pay to add one but if it is already there and you clean and oil it regularly, you will be fine.

If you don't mind extra dirt in your engine for no performance gain they are fine if you prefer adequate filtration to keep grit out of your engine for longer lasting engine get a paper filter

One from a honda prelude plus a $10 adapter will allow you to put a paper filter on your current intake tube

Since they provide no benefit, not having to oil and maintain the K&N filter is reason enough to switch back to a paper filter.

Go back to a stock airbox. Or, since you are making the switch and if you are feeling ambitious, look into the Windstar cowl intake. Cowl induction is the only way you "might" see some benefits.
