Can anybody recommend a particular brand CAI for a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara? Where to purchase? Thanks
Well that can be debated.... does it sink or is it pushed down by the hot air from above?Cold air does sink.
Having an air intake with the filter located lower in the engine compartment will definitely get cooler and more dense air into the engine.m998dna said:Huh? ... we're not trying to suck water from a puddle. The challenge is to scoop up the coldest air...
Where to find that air is the question of the day.. don't complicate this task with water.

However, the lower it is mounted your chances of hydrolocking the engine are magnified drastically. If you ever plan on driving your jeep offroad and crossing a shallow stream or even a deep puddle in the mall parking lot there is good chance you'll suck water into the engine rendering it useless. I've done that to a car almost 20 years ago driving through a flooded hotel parking lot.. It's not worth the risk IMO.
It was many years ago on my first car. Got a junkyard motor for about $400 that was junk but I got about $900 out of the car trading it in.m998dna said:Understood... my point exactly. A CAI is basically a waste of money and increases the risk of ownership...
What did it cost you to replace your motor?
I've known guys that hydrolocked their Hemi's and cost them close to $8K.
