It all really depends on what you want to do with your JEEP.
Your best bet is to drive it for a while as is, then decide what you want to do with it.
What size tires you want to run, flat ground, or lots of hills, do you mostly go off road, or is it a daily driver, in town, or highway. All these factors can effect your final decision.

Changing air cleaners and exhaust, other than for sound is a waste of money and may cause you problems.
If your looking for better performance, well re-gearing is your best bet!
There are some very knowledgeable members on this Forum, that can help you in that area!

Fell off his home planet and needs new drugs
Just think how badass it would sound if he eliminated the air filter all together!!!!!
According to his way of thinking, they are just a waste anyway!!!!!!

|Lobsterred13||I have a 2013 Jk with the 3.6 VVT motor what's a good intake for it.Any thoughts about the motor I am new to the jeep world and love already ?|

I just put one on, AND LOVE IT! K&N 63 series. Its a little more response but not much, plus i got 1.3 more mpg! It makes my minivan powered JK sound like a V8! I havent gone down many dirt roads or big trails, but i did blast through a couple mud holes on the back way to the golf corse today.
I bet if that bothers you, you can seal up the heat shield a little bit more, but i would say go for it!

A high efficiency filter doesn't necessarily need to flow less air than the factory filter, but the OP is talking about a JK that is already 3-4 years old. I'd certainly consider the longevity of my engine if I were in their shoes.

|Rottenbigdogs||not sure if it was me changing my driving or the intake but I gained a little MPG that said I went on a run with the local clube that involved some water and mud as the water went over the hood I thought to my self wow wonder how close that got to submerging the filter as the KN has little protection. got home and pulled the cover off to find mud/dirt on the lower 1/8 of the filter while the whole engin was brown with dirt. got close so I am considering going to something else or back to stock.|

Some crappy brands, like KN, might introduce dirt. But CAI are generally safe. Some protect better than OEM filter box.
You will not get any gains except some placebo in your head.
They sound great. That was the sole reason I bought mine.

|jcrawler93||People here complain about to much dirt getting inside their JK engine with a K&N air intake. But your ok if you live in a area that doesn't have too much sand/dirt roads, a little dirt won't hurt your engine. I have an AFE intake and haven't had a problem with it. I have a K&N in my other car and it did give it a additional hp but it's because it was forced inducted. They're all the same airaid, k&n and afe|

Cold Air Intake
2010 3.8L.... Would a Cold Air Intake make a difference in power and would it be worth the $$ to put one on. What are the pro's and con's in your opinions?
