I am looking at upgrading my air intake system in my 4door unlimited sport jk. Any Ideas on what the best approach? there are so many to choose from. i only off road about 3 times a year. most of the time is city and highway driving.
CAI manufacturers have the best marketing skill since snake oil salesman. Where else can you buy something that makes a good noise and little else for $300. I am sure you can find a noise maker you can mount to the bumper a lot cheap that makes a great air flow sound. There are some vehicles these actually work on but when you have the intake located in the exact same place as stock, how is it sucking in cold air? All it is doing is sucking in more hot air to a computer controlled throttle body that regulates air/fuel mixture to a precise level.
Unless you can actually move the filter box to a location that actually gets cooler air these things are great to suck in more dirt and possibly water.
