novi306 Well I can tell a difference both in noise and seat of the pants with the baffle out. It seems to rev easier and it doesn't lug at low rpm's in higher gears now. I also cleaned the throttle body off it was oil soaked

novi306 Yes it is. I didn't realize there was different air intake systems between the 2.5 and the 4.0 . I was told they were the same setup

OhSixTJ I don't have either of those pieces. Is yours a 4 cylinder?

novi306 Ok thanks for the answer !

jeepstertj It's just a baffle. It lowers the noise for your intake. But i think it will also lower your intake flow rate.
Some other vehicles like fords pickup s have almost the same in most cases i removed that thing and we get like 1-4% power increase and more mpg but more noise. I would suggest try it with and without and post the changes.

novi306 Ok technically it's called an "air RESONATOR box" silencer plenum Just am wondering about the baffle inside

novi306 The square plastic box above the throttle body looks like a plenum

Big Sarge The airbox is not close to the throttle body??? What do you mean by " inside the airbox right above the throttle body "

Stock air box

What does the baffle inside inside the airbox right above the throttle body do ? Is it for sound restriction or does it have a real purpose as in directing air flow ?
