aircntlr Which is why i said slight pick up. It's definitely not a "Placebo" affect, I've got enough experience with vehicle feedback to know the difference. When you're driving on the same roads, same environments day in day out, I can tell between the intake and exhaust it's running a bit better. As for the cold air part, It actually has a boarder between the engine and filter with a seal that goes around the hood to form a seal area away from the engine heat, therefore pulling cooler air from underneath. Plus with the plastic tube Vs a metal tube the air doesn't heat up as fast.

SeVeReDiStOrTiOn It's your money and your jeep if that's what you want to spend it on more power to ya. I had a Airaid on my hemi ram and it's pretty good quality for the price.

When I had my Blazer, I got a kick out of people on the Blazer forum who would remove the factory setup and install a cold air intake. The factory setup on S10 blazers pulls air from near the headlight. It's more of a cold air intake than the crap they were installing.

Jerry Bransford The biggest effect a cold air intake causes is the Placebo Effect which for some people is very real. Don't waste your $$$. And if it were that easy to improve mpg, the factory would have already installed it since they are under IMMENSE pressure from the EPA to improve CAFE mpg, even a little bit. Even a single mpg the way things are now is huge.

Nissantech Same here I have a homemade intake that I slapped on there I could deff tell a pick up diff but took it off cause I was worried about hydro lock!

aircntlr I actually broke down and bought an Airaid intake with the throttle body spacer. I noticed a huge difference in throttle response with a slight pick up performance. I also added a Banks cat back exhaust which sounds great and I def felt a slight acceleration pick up, not that i'm trying to go fast in a jeep..lol Waiting to see any fuel economy changes.

2004Columbia I think the general consensus here is that a cold air set up will do little to nothing for you and you should save your money.
