I bet if that bothers you, you can seal up the heat shield a little bit more, but i would say go for it!

Double call. No CAI is going to give an additional 1.3 mpg, if it did thats, what the factory would use. They are hard pressed to get the highest mileage they can.

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.
Thank you! I will just leave it as is for now and see how things turn out. I will probably lift it first.

Not exactly like a V8, but a whole lot closer!

Dirt is your engines worst enemy. It's guaranteed to give you a oil burner!
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!

Wow - just wow. First, I agree that engines are built well these days compared to older designs. However, abrasive particles (dirt or otherwise) are the principle cause of engine wear (along with lack of lubrication/protection from your oil on start-up). Those particles aren't just something to worry about, they are THE thing to worry about with respect to engine wear. The quality of your oil, the quality of your air and oil filtration are the three biggest factors you can control to prolong the life of your engine. I suppose if you view a vehicle as disposable, it doesn't much matter.

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.

TrueBlueJK I installed the AFE kit a few weeks ago and don't see a difference in power, but it looks and sounds cool.

legitposter 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.

kjeeper10 I ran a Banks for a little while. My opinion, not worth the cost for little gain if any.

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
