AFE Intake Installed!!

Well guys, Got one of the New AFE (Advanced Flow Engineering) Intake on the Jeep Yesterday!! Let me tell you, this simple intake swap changed the whole driveability of the new 3.8L V-6. Its more responsive off idle, climbs to 6k RPM quicker and sounds bad A$$ to boot!!! Since we wont be getting throttle body spacers for this motor, I think this is going to be about it for the intake side. Pretty good bolt on power for just 193 bucks!!! Looks good too!!! Install was pretty easy, took about 30 min and I was "dallying" and shooting pics.

Thanks, Jim. We can expect the lift kit in about 2-3 weeks, the tires in about the same time and the wheels should be here in 2 weeks. It HAS to be done for Easter Jeep Safari In March, so as usual (like last year with the TJ) It will be a last min thing, I am sure. I still dont have a solid answer on the rear bumper either....

Fuel economy and wrangler don't belong in the same sentence

ACTUALLY.....It went UP from 16.8 to 18.0 In town. It was actually installed as a prototype for aFe. It works VERY well. It improved the low end responce and power. It made a pretty big improvement on top end power also. It pulls HARD to 6,000 without a problem now. Lets get this right for the record. I am a TJ owner also, so realize that I am not bagging on TJ's BUT...The JK does EVERYTHING the TJ DID, Just better. With one exception. That damn V-6. Let me also add that I own a ZJ, XJ also..... I am just that impressed with the new Wrangler.

Thumbs up Total Agree

I put the five inch K&N air filter on a Rusty's Off Road intake adapter. I kept my stock air intake tube, and mass air sensor. I spent $69 on it and damn I could tell a defference right away.

Does AFE sell their dry filters without an intake kit? I would love to replace my oiled cotton one with their new "dry technology".

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

I put the Rusty's Off Road Kit in my JK X and it is more responsive and the exhaust sounds better, I have not noticed a difference in my fuel economy.

Yup they sure do. All I need to know to get you one is the measurements of the tube size and length.

I installed a Brute Force a few months ago and after my "reflash" I'm averaging 20 mpg on back roads and quick take offs from the line.... , anyway I'm happy and no matter which intake you buy, it is a "must" for us JK owners....(click on my sig)....

I am soon going to buy an intake (probably Next week) which would you recommend the AFE or the Brute Force.

I have used AEM on my TL, RSX-S, Civic Si and have used Injen on my Element and my son's Civic EX , therefore I will say AEM ..I don't know much about the construction of the other brands...
