Kn intake vs. Kn filter
 
Which one would you run? The Kn intake is around 200$ opposed to the 40$ filter.

Jeeps arent known for hp but I Want the best performance I can get

My opinion, K&N intake. I have got one for every vehicle I have owned.

Neither. Just get a Wix or Napa filter and enjoy an engine that doesn't get all fouled up.

I think it's a pretty well established fact that an intake mod on a Wrangler is a complete waste of money. The factory airbox is not restrictive at all and if you look at the dyno charts of a Jeep with an intake the gains are virtually non-existent until about 5,000 rpms which you will hardly ever get to. They do offer good improvements on other vehicles, just not on ours. Save your money and just get a normal filter and keep replacing it regularly.

Neither. It will not help with power or mileage.

I do not use a reusable filter. I prefer the OEM paper filters. I feel they filter finer particles. I do use one of these Amazon.com: K&N 85-2445 Filter Minder; Push in: Automotive in my intake. It lets me know when the filter is becoming restrictive.

A great deal of information on this subject can be found by using the search feature on this and other forums. Some very experienced offroaders have expressed very strong personal opinions based upon their history. Almost all basically agreeing with post #3, #4, and #7 above.
