|SirGeorgeKillian||So riddle me this batman. You put a cold air intake on your Jeep. So it is sucking in air that is a little cooler. It is sucking air through a manifold that sits an INCH ABOVE YOUR EXHAUST HEADER! Boy, it is a good thing you are sucking all that cold air in!|

Much like a "Hi-Performance Sound Package"...IOW, it sounds like it's got hi-performance...
Without doing the work to make the engine capable of moving more air (camshaft, heads, intake, exhaust, PCM, fuel system...and the list goes on...) all a CAI is going to do is make noise and let dust into the engine.

So what you all are saying is that I shouldn't have dropped a couple hundred on an intake for my new habit? Even though I have a lead foot and love weaving in and out of traffic. Not to mention I love the growl it makes. And I did notice a difference from the stock taking off from a dead stop.
Speaking as a person who has come from a long line of rice burners.
Not to mention that I have a 4.0 in my LJ
(I could be just stirring the pot more too <WEG>)

The issue isn't that they get dirty too fast, the issue is they let too much stuff go by. They don't catch the really fine particles of dust that paper elements do. Foam elements aren't any better than the stacked, oiled gauze that K&N type filters use.

|Patrick H||OK, you got me. I pull a 25ft trailer (with my truck) and I see WOT for periods of time. But, not @ redline. At least, not for too long..|

He He - some people complain the after market filters get dirty too fast.
Whats the purpose of the filter if it's not to catch the dirt before it goes into your engine?
WOT can be at any speed, even pulling a hill at lower RPM can be at WOT.

Geez when I want to go fast I just get in my Blown Stang and let it rip, 535 at the rear wheels will show you just how slow a Jeep is hehehe.
Now is this considered a CAI

It's much easier to run a snorkel up the handle.

Some people still believe in the Easter Bunny.
I think as long as something cost money, people will believe that it works and swear that their butt is calibrated to measure the hp gains
|04-16-2012 12:27 PM|
I thought we already hashed all this out...
Fact of the matter is, the stock intake/filter is capable of supplying more air than the engine needs, even at WOT and max rpm. Until you increase the engine's capacity to move air, both in and out, the stock intake/filter is NOT an issue.
Yes, temps play their part, but are engineered in as much as possible.

|Patrick H||Even if it did make it lean (it won't) you'd get a DTC/MIL long before it was too lean to do any damage.|
|04-15-2012 09:53 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||A CAI won't cause an engine to run too lean since a CAI can't force more air into the engine than the engine is requesting/pumping into itself.|
