Did autocorrect strike again?

If you mean a cold air intake, don't bother. There are a thousand threads demonstrating with evidence that they're a waste of money on 99% of the Jeeps out there. Unless you just want the sound.

Listen to Godholio. The only cold air intake that even came close to being worth the trouble of very frequent filter cleanings/changes, MAF sensor cleanings. and overall cost (not to mention possible hydrolocking) was on my 08 Z06 Corvette. Even then, it didn't help much other than to keep a somewhat stable intake temp.

Has anyone complained to CAI manufacturers about false marketing/advertising for their products on certain vehicles (like the Jeep)? It's not a cold air intake on the jeep. The intake is in the same location as the stock intake. Only difference is that it's an exposed cone filter instead of an enclosed air box. It actually likely draws in warmer air than the stock air intake.

I think NEI is more accurate than CAI: Noisy Exposed Intake.

The only NEI worth having to me is one that is mounted to a supercharger or turbo system

Save your money for a MOD, that will ad a benefit!

The factory installed air induction system, is designed for the proper CFM air flow, and micron absolute filter protection, in dirty dusty environments, plus water forging!
So, you already have a quality system!!!!!!!
