silvrevo AAaaaaaaaaaaaa,, AEM is Brute Force... AEM Brute Force.

thaduke2003 ^ As I said, the Mopar one IS an AEM- they look alike because they're the same thing Mark W.

silvrevo Actually, the Mopar one looks like a Brute Force.

Brute force is $229.
Mopar is like $380?

My dealer said that either will work fine as far as warrenty goes.

I will look into it more when I get my free Oil change next week.

I have looked at about 30 open air set ups for the JK.

Forget the name of the one I kinda liked.

daggo66 Yes, but if you are adding a snorkel you should also extend your breather tubes.

Meshal How about an air intake + a Snorkel, will that lessen the chances of hydrolocking on the engine? and how much power will both combined will provide?
08-20-2010 07:48 AM
thaduke2003 ^Hah.
So the Mopar is just an AEM intake, rebadged, by the way. The brand has ZERO impact on warranty, so don't let someone sell you that the Mopar intake will effect warranty ANY differently from another brand.
All of the intakes give you sound, and maybe a horsepower or two. Not worth increasing the chances of hydrolocking on an engine that's already fairly easy to do that to- Mark W.

daggo66 I run a cold air intake from November through March.

BKK I have the Volant. Makes a lot of noise - a good noise - sounds better and feels a little perkier; however, don't expect much. No change either way in gas mileage. Superchips says they are partnering with Volant to offer a performance map with that specific CAI - it's not out yet though.

silvrevo Alot will say waste of time,, might get hydro lock if water splashes up there.

I say try it yourself and see what you think.

Im thinking about one,, the Mopar is like $388 from the dealer.

AEM has one just like it for about $220.

And most will say an oil, KN in the off raod is not a good idea,, will gumm up too fast.

You will find out soon,

Best of luck.

Cold Air Intake

Anyone out there installed a new cold air intake? I hear Mopar is good for the JK. I would love some feedback before i pull the trigger.
